    Very nice guys. That battle's not so unbeatable anymore it seems. Interesting you both went to hold the gate. Different strokes I suppose!

    I was bombing through my old campaigns, looking for something to throw in here, and these seemed likely candidates... I'll post my personal results later today.

    1: Numidia VS Brutii.
    2: Spain vs Brutii.

    Lemme know if it's too easy... still trying to gauge the difficulty range i should be making this.

    EDIT:
    I'd feel a little silly posting battles from some of my campaigns, then being the only one to actually play 'em, so i'll just soldier on with the others, and save mine for when someone else has tried it.

    So. Gaul vs SPQR.

    This was an ambush? Easy victory... All of my cav was at the head of the roman column, sinlge line. Inf was split evenly on both sides. Swarmed the head rom three sides, started an insta-route which shortly engulfed the entire column. Nothing fancy. Victory.

    Second last one. Gaul vs Brittannia.

    Well the general chariot was the greatest threat. Hands down. It had to go first. Hid my barbarian infantry in the trees, and ran the cav pellmell at the reinforcement army (yes, taking some shots from the bow chariots, but it was worth it). Triple charge broke the woad warriors, and i barely touched them. Chariots don't do so well against horses, when theyre bogged down by steeds and not given a chance to move. After i took out that chariot, i chased the other chariots until i caught them at the edge of the map, and repeated the process. After that it was a simple matter of isolating, and converging on the enemy, one unit at a time. I got caught up with two warbands and a peasant at one point, suffering severe losses to my barbarian cav, who routed. General withdrew, was chased by the peasesnts, and so sent to work again. Barbarian cav rallied, fought against a warband, routed. Rallied again. LAst warband was hit by a three-pronged cav. Victory.

    Wholly smokes... that last battle (WRE vs Celt) IS bloody hard. I position myself on a hill, and can take out the entire first army with some flaming arrows, two seconds of melee, and a cavlary charge. But i can't seem to get rid of the second army >:/ I save up all my pila's, and focus fire at the general with my archers, but that crazy bugger... the general single-handedly tends to route most of my units. Flanking shmanking, i can't seem to kill the general. Must...win !>:0

    Ha, yeah, that battle is certainly a tough one. I thought it might have been because it practically my first go at playing BI, but I'm glad to see I'm not the only one to have difficulty playing it

    If anyone has a hard battle, please do upload it so we can all have a go and maybe learn a thing or two about different approaches to a battle and have some fun

    I did it I finished the second battle It was harder than the first one I used the desert cavalry to rout as many as possible units and it did the work I routed the entire pontic light cavalry but then my cavalry routed under the enemy missile fire my general was in danger under the archers mercy then i decided to attck with my infantry i used my missile troops (skirmishers+silician pirates) to take out the pontic heavy cavalry it killed some 50% of the original number then the enemy charged with his whole troops into my phalanxes and then I ordered the general to take out the busy troops I had a clear victory with 243 kills and 192 losses.

    Stretegos: Screenshots: This is what i do:

    1: When playing, hit "prtscn" button on your keyboard (print screen). This copies your screen.
    2: pause, and minimise RTW (control/alt/delete works fine)
    3: open a picture editing program ( i use an outdated version of paint)
    4: paste (ctrl + v), and save image.
    5: when posting here on TWC, click "go advanced". Towards the bottom of the page, hit "manage attachements", and upload all of your screenshots. May take a couple minutes.
    6: "post reply". Bam. You are now the proud owner of a post with screenshots.
