as Julia. Being quite inexperience i have let the Brutii to expand enormously and they basically control all the east. i am at a point where i am beginning to think about the civil war.
The thing is my armies aren’t the best. I only have a few armies which always crush the enemy , but the others are usually just composed of town watch and merc etc ( principi etc). The territories which i own are:
all of Gaul land (ie all of france and north italy) , all of spain and 5 of north africa territories ( will have all soon from Scipii - all their cities are rebelling).
p.s sorry for name spelling , i have a non English version of the game and I am translating the names as I think they are.
For defending my cities ( all with the best walls ) I was thinking of having
10 chosen archer units ( this has always proved pivotal against guals and Spanish and rebels with my archers decimating their armies )
2 Heavy cavalry ( counter attack down streets)
7 legionaries (praetorians , urban cohorts, etc depending on financial status)
I know this might sound expensive but this shall only be the case for my bordering cities : arretium ,armenium , mendelenium and potavium ( and im just hoping that the britons wont attacky my crappy gual lands with bad walls and only one good army)
For my besieging army I was hopping to have at least
7 legionary (praetorians , urban cohorts,)
2 heavy cavalry
1 archer unit.
I think I might be too much on onagars here…. And I have thought of importing elephants from my African lands (inspired by the trailer)
And for my general all round fighting army on battlefield I was thinking of having
6 chosen archer units
6 legionary (praetorians , urban cohorts,)
2 light cavalry
1 heavy cavalry
and 4 spaces left
Obviously I m not gonna have 6 onogars when I will be facing a city with wooden walls and I will have plenty of small armies to defeat their tiny ones (although im hoping I will be able to bribe their armies (small).
In terms of finance my income is roughly 10 000 dinarii a year and I have built all the buildings already.
I havent had much experience in using gladiators so dont know if i should implement them. Also i have heard about this deadly unit in the roman army ( s....) but cant remember its name. What is it like in battle and what do you need to build it?( im pretty sure that i have it somewhere but i cant find it)
Once again im sorry for the numerous mistakes.
