I've taken all of the East, pretty much the entire right third of the map, southern Greece, all islands save Sicily, Britain, Ireland. Only the Spanish, Brits, and all four Roman factions stand aside from me. I want to take Rome. I can't break through the Roman lines, and they can't take my cities (I set up my hopilites deep in my cities, almost right next to the square and they cannot get through no matter what). As I said, I have Caralis, and an invasion fleet coming in from Antioch (they're about halfway there) that I plan on taking and holding Rome with in a semi-blitzkrieg. One problem though; two large SPQR armies standing right outside Rome. My invasion army might be able to beat them one on one, but cannot win a protracted conflict with all of Italy which will happen if I get bogged down. My plan is to try and bleed these two armies by sending over waves of missile troops (primarily cavalry) to whittle these armies down and distract them and get them far away enough from Rome so my main force can land, attack, and take the city. Are there any problems with this plan? Does anyone have any pointers?
