i took a city... with 6 recruits.... after i lost 129 men on Moscow.....they only have 14 men left so im like hurry go to a random village so i can attack!
you're not talking about Tirh are you? (cant remember what its called in this mod) it is the easiest city to capture; in native, all the mods ive played, and especially in this one.
all you need is high archery and a good bow (native/most other mods) or a flintlock rifle and high firearms skill (Age of Blackpowder). i usually join whoever is at war with the nords, or whatever the name of the faction that currently controls tihr. i order all of my troops to hold position at the foot of the outer wall, out of the line of sight of enemy archers/riflemen, then i stand on the ladder that goes to the top of the outer wall, and with my head just showing enough to see the enemies on the inner wall, i take out my bow/rifle, and pick them off one by one, starting with riflemen/crossbowmen, then musketmen/archers, throwing infantry, and finally when anyone capable of hurting me from a distance is dead, i can go up the ladder, to the inner wall, and stand 10 feet away and shoot them in the head!
when sniping, you also want to be aware, that the hand rail on the catwalk in the outer wall will stop most incoming enemy arrows/bolts/bullets, but it will also stop yours! so be attentive to the position of the handrail to your own angle of fire. also, make sure you have as much head armour as you can afford, since almost all of the damage you take will be to your head. a helmet with high armour, and armour that also provides head armour are a good idea. you should also exchange your melee weapon for extra ammo, since you wont be fighting hand to hand.
