YOU ARE THE GAULS, YOUR ENEMIES ARE THE GREEKS, YOU HAVE 500 ODD MEN, THE GREEKS HAVE AROUND 2500. CAN YOU SURVIVE???? (read on)
SOMEHOW the Gauls have survived the first 50 turns of the game and have wound up in Macedonia. The Greeks, always going out of their way to piss people off, have decided to sent an army against you...unprovoked, of corse. Your job is to survive their invasion, or at least the first few waves (they have around 4 other armies around the city...you'll see..)
I found this battle to be extremely challenging, I lost after killing 2000 odd Greeks and losing my General (I thought I had won...then I relized they had surrounded me) If you think you can do better, download this and post the results.
This save is a newer version of my 'The Gauls' save, I control most of western Europe, and only the Dacians come close to matching my expansion. The Scipii are the only Romans left, just killed the Brutii even though I had to chase them all the way back to Macedonia.
GAME IS ON VH/VH, ahhaha, and you thought it would be 'easy'...
TO INSTALL, un-zip file and place in Activision (Creative Assemby if you have Gold) /Rome - Total War/Saves
Hi. This save loads and runs just fine. Your Gaul faction is some 30+ regions into its objective of 50 Regions. The campaign is in full swing with money in the bank. Troops scatterred all over the place (as are rebels).
The purpose though is defend Thessolonica from the assaulting Greeks. They will attack your stone walled city as soon as you load up the game.
You face artillery, siege equipment and a 2000 troop shortfall. You have a warband, they have armoured hoplites. You have two Forresters...one of which is gold exp. Your general is no slouch either.
It can be done.
This is really great batlle and it took me about 30min to win. I won with this stats:
men deployed kills men rem.
gauls 889 2748 352
greeks 2820 532 67
at the end i only had two archers of 188 and 136 and 9 warbands.sorry or errors im not english

I won this very easyly in 20-25 minutes without hardly any loses i just told the missle troops that you had to aim for the siege equiment the greeks only managed to rase one ladder to my wall but it was quickly killed after i sent the horses out of the gate to destroy the now small greek force i dont think it could of been won without them achers they are the reason why the battle was so easy for me but still a great game and the name of the gaul general is funnyish lol.
