Announcing the Create-A-Unit Competition

by | 9/15/2009 9:52 AM

Got a knack for creating units? Want to just test your skills and improve them? Then come and join the Create-A-Unit Competition. In this competition you can test your skills in creating new units within a given theme against the other forumers of Total War Heaven. For full details see the thread in the modding forums.

Even if you don't want to join and create new units you can help in the competition. We're looking for a few judges who want to judge the entries submitted and pick a winner from among them. If you're a judge you won't have to judge all the rounds, so you can still participate if you want to. No modding knowledge is required, so feel free to sign up for the Create-A-Unit competition.

New Article: Blitzing with the Gauls

by | 9/13/2009 8:16 AM

Having trouble using the Gauls effectivily? Getting squashed by Romans, Spanish, Britons and Germans? You no longer have to. Edorix has written a guide to a strategy which gives the Gauls a good chance of victory using lots of cavalry and archers. It can be applied both in the campaign and in multiplayer, so it's a valuable source for anyone.

You can read Blitzing with the Gauls in our battle strategy section. Feel free to offer advice, compliments and other reactions in this topic.

Has thou ever wondered why some warlords hear the Horns of Victory so early, while thou are still wallowing in the depths of despair and struggling to bring thy wretched treasury above the dreaded null?

Well then, Noble Warlord, here is a treatise for thee. Peruse its runes and grasp the evil but effective knowledge within.

Thy may leave thy runes of praise here.

In the spirit of this missive, thou may keep thy runes containing negative energy to thyself. We care not to see them.
