A very organised city, Buhen was erected in 3 phases : north-western part, eastern part and south-western part to finish.
The first sector is the one with gold mines and barley in the flood plains so cash was not an issue. But the floods are very poor in this mission so you have to think early to your expansion towards the eastern bank and its ostriches... And the southern one with its quite fertile meadows.
Nubians don't attack by the Nile so my beautiful warships were here on display but the army was very much necessary as the city is more and more attacked year after year. And Serabit Khadim also asks for help...
Maybe I should not have erected all my forts on the same bank as Nubians come from all the sides of the map but hey, now I won't change it anymore ! I chose to use transport ships but if you use this map as a model for your own city, think about the possibility of doing differently for the army ! Also I haven't erected any wall or tower as I mostly relied on highly trained and mobile soldiers. That's why I opted for 4 archer forts and 2 infantry ones but you can have more fantassins if you want (that's more expensive and they move more slowly but once again, it's all about your choices !).

Buhen is a very interesting city to develop and historically it seems to have been a model for future fortresses in Nubia as it was a highly fortified and structured city. Alas now it lies under the waters of Lake Nasser...
