Recommended First Campaign?

Post by lhughes » Sat Apr 16, 2016 8:58 pm

Had this since its release (including the more recent version). Going to try to get into tonight. Any suggested first campaign? My ideal first campaign:
1) decent narrative -- the campaign itself is interesting in terms of its course and history.
2) challenging but not for an expert - I'm a novice!
3) unit differentiation clear enough -- I can grasp differences rather then have to study the details to understand unit Type A vs Unit Type B. I am pretty ignorant about this period.
4) well designed -- you think the scenarios etc are good
5) units developing experience matters -- think this is only in the dynamic campaigns?
Thanks for any advice,

p.s. as a minor aspect I am of Swedish (and Scottish ) descent so if the Swedish campaign(s) meet all these criteria then that would be cool.
