i've never had one that good, but once as the bannor on a huge barbarian world with raging barbarians and aggressive AI, i started isolated on a peninsula with about 20 barb cities between me and the next person. i responded by building a bunch of warriors and sending them out. the first time i did this, i got to the nearest city and saw a couple warriors with combat 3 and another with enchanted blade (how did this happen) along with a few more promoted warriors headed over from god knows where, so i sent them on to the next closest. i conquered the city (there were only a couple noob warriors there, and sent all but one of my warriors back just to scout the first city, when Auric builds Samhain. anyway, after a while of sending armies of warriors out to die on the first city, i finally get lucky and one warrior survives long enough to capture the city. i use the name Thor for my leader name, so i named the unit Thor's Hammer. I also got a unit which i named Scout Slayer because he defended a city on his own against five scouts with combat 3 or 4 and shock, and another random unit which i named Second in Command for a lack of a better name (he hadn't really done anything, he just kinda got strong). anyway, with these 3 i dominated the early game and by late-mid-game they were around level 12. I lost Thor's Hammer and Second in Command at 98.5% odds somehow (almost smashed my comp for that one), so i renamed Scout Slayer to Thor's hammer and continued (although he was only level 10ish). Thats when I summoned the Mercurians, and I haven't gotten around to going back to the original game, so i'll get back to you on his exploits.
