Hi everyone! i am currently new to RTW, and i love the game. However, i m just curious that in the imperial campaign, which of the roman factions is best to play as?
I am thinking of the Julii because they fight barbarians rather than organized troops that the Brutii and Scipii will have to fight. Anyway, any suggestions? Thanks for answering.

i would go with the julli or the scippi. the gauls arent that hard to conquer as the julii and when i was the scippi, carthage was practacaly destroyed by me, egypt, nubia and the spainish. but i would go with the julli first. its alot easier and the gailic armies just have their strength in high numbers and have really weak units in the beggining of the game.

I played the Julii first and found it to be a good introduction to R:TW (although I'm a Medieval veteran). The Gauls' low-tech units break themselves against a well-organised line, and although they have superior archers to the Romans they hardly ever field them. An smallish army of Hastati with wardogs and Equites, organised well, can easily beat any medium-level Gaul army.

I love the brutii... the beginning is hard, but once you're done with the greeks and macedonians and you hold Asia minor, nothing can stand in your way.
