  1. I think you can launch a game from the editor too. Maybe that?
  2. What is the average polygon count now? In comparison with the old total war, it seems that 800 is really low: https://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?790126-What-is-the-limit-in-polygons-for-Medieval-2-models-using-the-4gb-patch
  3. The Celts wore the sword on the right side. Like the Romans. The Iberians and the Celtiberians wore the sword on the left generally, like the Greeks.
  4. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punicus https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caucenus https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caesarus https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tautalus https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olyndicus https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Retógenes_el_Caraunio (it is in Spanish but it is really a valid candidate) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanginus Chalbus of the Tartesii:
  5. Database and introductory website for Iberian, Celtiberian and Lusitanian epigraphy: http://hesperia.ucm.es/index.php
  6. The short film made by Les Ambiani is officially available on youtube check this album too:
  7. For the Romans they definitely are using it during the Punic Wars, Polybius mentioned it explicitly. But for the Iberians and Celtiberians, according to the articles above, the evidence for breastplates seems to stop both in the archaeological records and artistic depictions at the beginning of the 3rd c. BC.
  8. https://www.stadt-zuerich.ch/hbd/de/index/staedtebau/archaeo_denkmal/archaeo/themen/keltin_kelte.html
  9. The breastplate (cardiophylax) is also something from an earlier period right? Not in use anymore during the Punic Wars?
  10. The Celtic montefortino isnt widespread in the Iberian peninsula. The Celtiberians never used it, only the Iberians of the North-East like the Illergetae.
  11. Britomaros / Viridomaros is the king of the Gaesatae http://encyclopedie.arbre-celtique.com/britomaros-viridomaros-2219.htm I would say Bolgios: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bolgios Or Ambiorix: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ambiorix Or Comontorios from Tylis kingdom https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tylis Or Luern the Arvernian king https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luern
  12. Chalbus of the Tartesii: Cerdubelus, a traitor: Luxinius and Culchas:
  13. I just learned that there was a temple of Isis at Carthage since the 3rd century BC: https://www.jstor.org/stable/43606763 Also, Isis on a Punic sarcophagus: https://www.worldhistory.org/image/5285/priestess-of-isis-on-a-carthaginian-sarcophagus-li/
  14. For the Maurya empire, some candidate heroes: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samprati https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chanakya
  15. @Carltonus proposed Cassivellaunus (Cassiuellaunos) which is indeed a good candidate https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cassivellaunus The other mentioned kings are Cingetorix, Carvilius, Taximagulus, Segonax then Mandubratius. But Cassivellaunus is indeed the most interesting choice. For the later period, there is Cartimandua of the Brigantes that could be an interesting figure and Calgacus of the Caledonians: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cartimandua https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calgacus
