Thread: Gaullic Regional Troops after 220

    Default Gaullic Regional Troops after 220

    I would like to know if its possible to recruit different Gaullic troops as regionals after the Gaullic reforms in 220? I'm playing as Epirus, and the year is 218. I have several towns in northern Italy from which I can recruit gaullic slingers, spearmen, etc. However no swordsmen or anything tougher than Gaeros (sp?). Now that the reforms have come will I be able to recruit Neitos, Brihentin, or other troops?

    The reforms don't affect regional MICs, so know you won't ba able to recruit any new troops.

    Neitos and Brihentin are at level 4 and 5 respectively of the regional MICs in northern Italy.

    If regionals are impossible to reform, couldn't the Neitos and Brihentin be moved up further north into Gaul, it would be a bit weird as the Romanii to field Camillan/Ploybian troops and Neitos/Brihentin that are late/elite Celtic troops. At least have the Romani have to conquer more to get them not just Mediolanum.

    Regionals are not impossible to reform, but "expensive". There are a finite number of buildings available, we're near the cap, and each reform spends an amount of them.

    This is a human problem. The AI won't get the troops, because when it captures any province, the script places the highest government type available. And since most(/all?) Gallic provinces allow type II for Romans, they won't be able to build regional MIC's higher than level 3. The exception comes if there's an existing government building of either level III or IV and the Romans repair it, a lesson which I learned in my Aedui campaign, when I established a level IV gov in Segesta and gave it back to the Romans. It's a matter of self control weather a human player chooses to use them.

    Btw, haven't tried this, but Neitos recruited from the Po valley are probably a great way to represent Hannibal's veterans.
