    Not necessary, the sweboz had many spear units back in EB 1.2.

    Yeah, but they were speaking of the Germanic spear unit, and Duguntiz were the main spear unit .

    Noone told that it was the main germanic spearman, let alone the Dugunthiz. JMRC just mentioned *a* germanic spearman. Thus, it might have been the Gaizoz Frije, the Speutagardaz, the Jugunthiz, the Skaduganganz, Druhtiz Habukisku, Dugunthiz Hattisku, Druhtiz Skandzisku, Gaizoz Alje... or perhaps a new unit in the Germania area...

    I think we can rule out the Speutagardaz and the Juguntiz, seeing as they would have been called Pikemen and Skirmishers. Skaduganganz probably also unlikely, though not impossible.

    And I said Druguntiz, never specified.

    And why am I actually trying to disproove EB members on which unit is done .

    Don't worry, Bablyon isn't going anywhere. Recent archaeology indicates that Babylon did not decline in a physical sense, but only in a political sense compared to Seleukeia. In fact, we see quite the reverse physically with Babylon where there was an increase in population and living standard starting at the end of the Achaemenid period, continuing through the Seleukid, and only experiencing a decline in the Parthian period.

    a good example of why wikipedia isn't the best source of knowledge, it's Babylon article claims the city was pratically abandoned by 275bc.

    More of an example of why you need to stay up to date on research. Two decades ago, many of the papers published would agree with that statement regarding Babylon because only ancient historians were used as the primary source, but things change as archaeology uncovers more and more.

    Well well! It seems that the Occvltvs Squad is far more bigger than I firstly thought!

    Thanks Alin, with this bigger picture I can tell everybody without any hesitation, that this is indeed a rock outcroup from the alps. Allow me some explanations :

    We can disticincly see three different layers :

    1. Permo-Carboniferous



    The whole bottom of the formation is made of lightly metamorphosed sedimentary rocks, p and T conditions were just enough to allow the ductile deformation of the ensemble. Among those sediments we can find ; Sandstone with cross-bedding ; Conglomerate ; etc... Those are in fact erosional rests of the Variscan moutains. The formation is dated as Permo-Carboniferous ( 336-250 Ma)

    2. Variscan Granitic Intrusion



    This part is mainly composed of Granite formed during the variscan orogeny. Age : 307 Ma. They are a product of the thicknening crust as the orogeny progessed and forced part of the crustal material at depth were the temperature and pressure were enough to allow the partial melting of the crustal rocks. The so obtained magma then began to rise buyontly in the crust.

    3. Older Crust Material




    This part is indeed the more complicated, composed of very old felsic rock, highly metamorphosed, showing caracteristic of pressure and Temperature typical for orogeny, many orogeny. Those rocks are so old that the survived at least two different orogeny. (Variscan and Alpine) Composed of Gneiss (both Ortho and Para); Meta-Sediment and Meta-Granit.

    To ease the understanding here a little card :




    -> The blue line represent the outcrop drawed above.

    -> Numbers are corresponding to the above descripted formations

    After a very (un)detailed geomorphological analysis we can draw the following conclusions :


    • The two red formations are a "Return fold". Crustal material resisted to subduction during orogeny and due to its higher density (compared to mantle) it "raised" upwards.
    • In the syclinal between those two fold are keeped the Permo-Carboniferous sediments, which probably once recovered a good amount of this formation. However due to erosion many of the upper tectonical layers are now away. (Well if you are very motivated you'll find some of them in the Molasse basin in the north.)


    ><(((oo> <oo))))><

    So I really hope this will help you all to better interpret what Alin showed us there!

    Kind regards

    Very useful Martelus, I┤m writing a paper about rock formations and this could really be the breakthrough in research I need to get a top grade.

    Dayum. It almost sounds like the Gaza Campaign would be in fine-tuning state. Which means, that the necessary units are integrated since the battles have already been done. As are the necessary game mechanics and factions 'n stuff. Sounds exciting!

    Perhaps the fact that the team started ( secretly in underground labs ) the creation of EB II while the EB I was still under fine tuning as well as the fact that the team has some work already done from EB I ( reseach for example , general experience ) will prove a decisive factor in an earlier than expected completion of the EB II mod .

    At least one can hope it is so .

    Good to know that things are moving .

    I can't wait for the beautifully skinned Iberian cavalry unit, JMRC mentioned.

    Then just give them what fit better for gameplay, for example if it is a cavalry unit, go for the spears (so they can charge better), but if it is an infantry, i think the swords would make the unit more unique. There was already a eastern spear-bow foot unit if i remember correctly.

    Oh it's infantry alright. Elite armoured infantry with bow and longsword, would that make a good unit you think?

    Depends on how it was used. Without background its like saying if you like Martians or Alpha Centauri aliens better. It's a matter of taste.

    I love longswords, so I say: go for swords!

    And, as mentioned above, there already is a spear-bow unit.
