Hey all. I want to recreate the armies and map that closest resemble the battle of cannae.(rome v.s Carthage, 216 bc) and I was wondering whether ye could help me.

Also which map would closest resemble the actual battlefield?

Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks

Just play the historical battle? And unless you mod the Carthaginians to have Barbarian Mercenaries you can't. I don't believe any map is like the one in the historical battle.

Sadly there isn't a historic battle of Cannae in the game. This might have to do with the game mechanics: in real life, Hannibal let the center of his line fall back while fighting the Romans, but this isn't possible (at least, not to the extent from the real battle).

If you want to recreate the battle yourself there isn't really a perfect map, as there was a river to the side of the battlefield at Cannae, something which you don't get in RTW. Battlefields have a river right through the middle or none at all.
