Relatively unknown to the Greeks and Romans until they took up arms and reached the Mediterranean, the Celts were the first of the peoples known as 'barbarians'. Celtic warriors marched into Northern Italy, while others traveled east to ravage Greece and Macedonia. Barbarians use their sword infantry, cavalry, archers, and war dogs to devastating effect. Their mobility, ability to utilise cover in forests, as well as their penchant for demoralising their enemies, makes them a true wildcard in battle.
Arminius, the Roman turncoat, balances reckless, swift attacks with infiltration and ambush tactics. His abilities to quickly turn the momentum of battle in his favour and whip his troops into frenzy can be paired with his talent of disguising himself as an enemy’s ally to strike a truly devastating blow.
Vercingetorix, Chieftain of the Arverni, is able to plow through units and defend key areas. His skills allow you to lock your units' morale and deliver a powerful conflagration to a surrounding area, turning enemies to ash. His ability to only succumb to damage after completing an order means Vercingetorix is defiant until the end.
Here are just a few highlights of the units employed by the Barbarian faction. Many more are eager to follow your orders and charge into battle, Commander.
Rally them under your banners!
