I've posted this on my site, here - http://journal.reven.co.uk/2005/08/01/barbarian-invasion-screenshots/ I really welcome the Night Combat mode. It's going to be really awesome. I wish though that they'd add Naval combat - I hate having to autoresolve resulting usually in a higher loss for me than the enemy. The Huns look brilliant in it - look at the masses of cavalry. Thoughts?

Looks good, but it seems that the enemy AI will have a huge advantage due to the darkness.

They'll need every bit of it. Playing on "very difficult" is only a challenge for the first couple of years right now.

Nice screenshots, I also wanted to fight sea-battles myself. But I guess it would be a bit boring after a while because there are only a few shiptypes. And it's not so easy to accurately display ship-combat.

That's interesting looking, staging night attacks can give you a huge advantage over an opponent if you suprise him.

Yep, I think the battle at the Trasimanic lakes took place during night or dawn.

Don't you think it'd be awesome to have naval warfare? Imaging fighting the Battle of Trafalgar with the Total War engine... If they don't do it in the expansion (and I doubt they will), they will probably do it in the sequal. The odds are that it will be Napoleon: Total War, in which case they will have to have naval combat - half the Napoleonic wars were fought on sea.

They were going to have great naval battles, with troops fighting on each other after a successful ram.
