After setting a few internal dates and going overtime on them, now we kind of just focus on finishing stuff without predicting when it will be done since there's much to be done and we're not doing great on the manpower front atm, but I hope it shouldn't take longer than, say, January. We're incorporating a new map, adding something that I don't think I'm authorized to say yet ;) as well as revamping/finalizing faction rosters, and there must be something else that I forgot. All in all, busy times, busy times :)

Our Bactrian roster is also interesting, featuring some fierce infantry units that every general would want to include into their army. In particular, Bactrian Phalangites and Bactrian Noble Hoplites that can be seen in the screenshot below :)

Oh, and be vary of Parthians and their Cataphract cavalry units... Yeah, you wouldn't want to face them, trust me :D

Will Publius Quinctilius Varus manage to rewrite history?

I'm now imagining Varus time travelleing and scribbling "totally wasn't my fault" into numerous historical manuscripts :P

I feel it should be on record that I was VERY sleep deprived when I came up with that pun...
