Civ 4 18 civs Pangaea test Marathon Monarch episode 6

Almost there. Attacking Genghis and almost winning now.

^ His lands. His giant stack of doom is still in the Zulu lands there on the left.

^ I declared on him and then didn't try and topple the vote. Everyone said 'no' to ending the war so it's all good.

^ Early concessions - I forgot he had some land south of me.

^ My stack squares off with his in Celtic lands. I will now try and get him to move onto the lowland so he will lose that hill defence bonus.

^ He's getting closer...

^ There we go!

^ A terrible clash of arms, we took so many casualties in this game at 60% or more odds in our favour, but I guess that's civ.

^ Tons of promotions available next turn and despite surviving with a large number of troops intact after our assault his counterattack fails miserably, we lose 4 guys while he loses every other battle.

^ Still not giving in. The amount of red relations here and wars versus all 9+ of my vassals...

^ A quick look at the global situation.

^ Set up a rainforest squad here to distract him while I build up again and try attacking from two different sides. Here and further west around this body of water, right under his belly.

^ Press toward the Christian holy city of Bibracte. Once Elizabeth's, then Genghis' for the last few centuries and now soon to be mine.

^ She falls. Note the incredible 100+ gold generated by the holy site being here. I'm keeping this.

^ Not good enough for him, though he offers a Zulu city.

^ I mass whip a Cavalry force in most cities. This along with drafting here and there for the next few turns should drive my Power up and make him submit faster, or at least allow me to attack better.

^ My jungle force have resisted a good few attacks.

^ Bibracte pops out of civil unrest and sure enough drives my income up.

^ After attacking him a bit on both sides he concedes.

^ I am now almost there re: land area, you need 51% to dominate and population. I think a portion of my vassals' scores are added to mine to get this figure.

^ Look at the conga line of troops heading west!

^ The final battle, my Cavalry and Riflemen versus Charlemagne's steel Cannons.
