SANCTA declared war on us in turn 94 (525 BC) so we'll use this thread rather than turn tactics for discussing movements and plans relating to combat. The tactics thread will be used to finalise actual movements for the turn. This thread is more planning where we want troops to go to and how we want to conduct our war. Hopefully it won't get too confusing having two tactics threads!! Anyway, the lowdown is that SANCTA have declared war and killed a chariot to stop us razing a barb city that they have their beady eyes on: Spoiler : The axe that killed our brave chariot is on about 1.5 right now. The other Axe in the shot is on 4.5 SANCTA's power score is about 52,000 above ours!! They've said they have forges in "all" their cities, so if we assume they have 4 forges this accounts for 8,000 soldiers. We've only got one barracks and I'm sure they have more. They also have more population. So we can probably assume they have about 35-40,000 worth of actual troops more than us. An Axe is 6,000 pts and a Chariot 4,000. So if they had they same army as us this could equate to about six extra Axemen. That's certainly nasty, but nothing that a couple of Catapults can mess up. See this thread for a summary of how the soldier points work.
