Romano British (RTW:BI Faction)
|Romano British (RTW:BI Faction)|
|From Game:||Barbarian Invasion|
Romano British are one of the non-playable factions in the Barbarian Invasion expansion for Rome: Total War. It is possible to make them playable but only by substantial alterations to the vanilla game, or by using a script.
They have a mix of Roman legionary infantry and more Barbarian units. One of their best units are Graal Knights, a powerful mounted unit, that is heavy armoured. They are in the Roman culture group.
The Romano British do not start on the map, instead they emerge if the roman provinces in Britain are captured. They are unique in the game as the only faction able to survive without owning a settlement, whilst not also being a horde capable faction.
Their roster is small and is almost entirely composed of renamed Western Roman Empire units.
This is quite simple. Overrun the Isles and capture the island. From there on establish an economy and invade the Continent. Often the best plan is to take the Celts before they have control over Ireland, if not, capture Ireland first as it is generally less densely defended and also has a better economical advantage. After the Celts are knocked out establish a large army on the mainland. If left late enough, you should be able to build British Legionaires on Ireland; send 5 or so units to the 3 cities in England/Scotland to help defend the mainland from the Saxons who will invade.
Build up an army of British legionaries, cavalry and archers and start taking over the Saxons in Denmark, as they are generally not well defended there as there armies are taking over the continent. This is your key to the continent...
Romano-British is a term to describe the people who inhabited modern day England and Wales, who were under Roman rule. They were conquered by the Romans under Emperor Claudius, when in 43 AD he invaded the region, local resistance died out sometime around 50 AD. Due to the general decline of the Roman Empire, in 410 AD the Romans were forced to abandon the province. Quickly authority devolved into Chaos, previous to this the only real administrators of the province was in the fact the now absent military. Various petty kingdoms popped up and began to fight amongst each other, and the Picts began to invade as well. With this various Romano-British leaders decided to call on foreign forces to help them, such as the Angles and Juts, who were to settle. Eventually these mercenariness were to turn on their employers and conquer them. For a time the Romano-British were confined to areas around Wales, but these to were eventually snuffed out.
