Those are from Bishop's book irc and number 3 might be the sword from Delos. Still I think we should focus on xiphos type of swords and variants, I think those are more fitting for 3rd century B.C. Rome whilst other types are hard to pinpoint at which point they were adopted.

The Greek Cities fighting the Macedonian Basileus on the field of battle. Dionysius's allies in the battle engage a superior force of hypaspists and phalangites who overwhelm our smaller hoplite formation. The melee continues for some time...
However later on in the battle Dionysius forms up his cavalry after routing the enemy skirmishers and attempts to charge into the rear of the enemy formation who are pinned down by the small but sturdy hoplites.

Unfortunately, the battle is lost but the Macedonian forces have lost a significant portion of manpower to a much weaker army. They cannot afford to sustain such profligacy or Dionysius and the other Greek leaders will win the war.

The new campaign map is really beautiful. One of the best ones -or even the best- I have ever seen for M&B.
