    Also, after switching to bi the maks have landed and seiged kydonia
    uh? no interference by you? how did the saka die then?

    Not if you play with historical,balanced armies(no uber-all-elites)and limit the number of men you field(only a state army comprosed of a few stacks,and some regional ones).I also think it's better for roleplaying,and you don't have to fight endless stacks.So battles become more decisive,like they were in history.

    I chose med for baktria because it was the first time i had chosen a far eastern faction

    ive also got a h/m casse and vh/m romani in progress too

    and that poll you mentioned before, i misread it for battle difficulty

    Romani campaign, EB on Alex.exe, VH/H

    262BC
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 


    252BC (previous update)


    242BC


    The stinking gauls are history. Tired of the puke-green Arverni in 248BC, I took their two remaining cities, made a "Caivs Gallivs" out of Caivs Avrelivs Cotta. The aedui marched two full-stacked armies along our borders, Caivus Gallivus made a fort, got besieged, kicked the aeduis butts and took their two only cities. End of the Gauls. I also sent an army through Illyria and conquered Dalmininion and Segestica. I'm currenly waiting for the Polybian reforms to happen before I attack any other faction.

    Makedonia and KH are constantly attacking each other, staging sieges after sieges. Makedonia eventually managed to take Korinthos back and after numerous attempts finally captured Pergamon. KH has also got two new additions, Trapz-bla-bla and Karia who both rebelled from their former masters.

    AS is still incredibly strong, and are managing all of their fronts pretty well. In the east, they have retaken all of their settlements from Pahvala, which by the way is down to one besieged (by AS of course) settlement.

    Saka Rauka have taken back one settlement from Baktria, and also conquered the rebel settlement separating them from the sarmatians. Battle surely awaits the steppe factions. The Sarmatians have conquered one of the Crimean cities.

    On the Iberian peninsula, heavy fighting between the Lusotanni and carthaginians have taken place, with neither gaining any real upper hand. The Lusotanni captured one city from the carthaginians, which was immediatly taken back. The carthaginians have also taken Cyrene from the ptolies.

    Wow, very rarely do you see an AI faction go from almost one side of the map to the other. I think two provinces (one on each side) could make them link up both sides of the map.

    Its got worse.
    Dont ask me what the Lusitanians are doing they just drove straight through gaul splitting it in halve. Hopefully i can take iberia and isolate them there. i have no idea what four factions in that proximity with no where to expand is going to do.

    Wow, Ptomely wants to out do alexander, just the hellas and the homeland and they have Alexanders empire and more.

    I suggest you build defencive armies to defend greece from the Yellow Death.

    Then take Iberia and Gaul (the four factions will attack each other).
    Then you have enough money to start to fight, though if you were in a dangerous mood, you could gift some iberian provinces to the Yellow death. As it is alex they may attack anyway.

    The epeirots own byzantium and the gateway to the asia minor, its all they own. i have three legions on border defence with the Getai.

    Of all the epansion the only factional casualty has been pontus who stupidly fought the maks to the west of them and were caught unaware by the ptoleys to the east.

    For Logistical reasons im going to need the Marian reform to deal with the juggernaught

    Spooky32, any chance you could upload that save game so the rest of us can take on the Ptolemys and the full stacks of panzers that they have obviously been using.

    What?! Sauromatae in Illirya?

    I must admit it took me a while to find out the "missing faction" :P

    Any more details about the campaign? It seems interesting!

    See the save game thread (or my sig for details).

    As for the journey:

    - Take the Chersonessos

    - Build fleet

    - Scout and bribe any armies besieging Dalminion

    - Sail to Illyria

    - Land

    - Attack

    - Set capital to Dalminion

    - Use add_population 1700 to Dalminion

    - Very High taxes to original cities

    - Original cities revolt

    - All this time using add_money, auto_win to survive

    - Return to a normal scenario situation

    Aren't the units kinda mismatched? I mean, couldn't you use the KH or someone with a more similar recruitment roster?

    Sarmatia seems to be the perfect choice really.

    1-No one cares about Sarmatia
    2-Ilyria has a pretty nice roster and access to lots of mercs.
    3-No one cares about Sarmatia
    4-Sarmatia usually becomes stagnant and bankrupt in the homelands.
    5-Illryia is cool
    6-See 1 and 4


    Ok, actually the Sauromatae are awesome, its just that they usually stagnate and keep pwned the Armenians.

    Things arent going to well in Gaul either the Averni have been wiped out by the Lusitanians and the Aedui are down to two settlements one is under sige by the Lusitanians.

    There has been a bit of a revival for the Karth-Hadast some settlements have rebelled back to them but its just delaying the inevitable.
