Decided to check out the Halloween stuff and was greeted by an invasion of Roma by Slaves....strong force too and a case of horrible lag....despite my 4gb GPU, 6gb RAM and i7 cpu......oh well.
The Spartan General prepares for battle.
The enemy formed up outside the walls, Tirariri and principles make up the bulk of the force, veterans that out match my own forces in experience....that wasn't going to stop the Spartan defenders.
Archers on the wall, trying to take down the in coming ladders.
Their few numbers hinder their progress and the ladders reach their destination.
Hopilites move onto the wall to back up the archers, an almighty fight ensures.
The slaves get their punishment 10 fold for their disobedience against their former Spartan overlords.
The vast numbers of enemy forces on the wall start to push back the lone hopilite unit on the wall.
After destroying the units on the wall the enemy come down and run into a line of very long pointy spears.....ouch
The hopilites guarding the gate turn around effectively surrounding the enemy force in bronze and spears
One spear unit snuck behind the Spartan lines by using the wall, but was caught coming down by 2 reserved hoplite units.
Birds eye view of the battle.....oh look, Javelins....not effective :P
The tide starts to turn and the defenders, start pushing the enemy force back
What could be on the other side of those gates?
Bad news for me...
Thankfully the last batch of enemy soldiers where surrounded, crushed in a pincer movement.
This allowed spare units to back up the lone unit at the gate holding off the cavalry, thus forcing the slaves to retreat.....Roma remains under Spartan Rule!

Balancing is a far more intricate thing than looking at who wins a 1v1 fight.
