How do you get falxmen in Rome Total War? I have checked the building plans and I can't find them. I understand that you need to be Germania. Is it just a rare unit you can recruit like druids?

It is possible to play as any faction by changing the descr_stat.txt file. However, this is not an official mod, so do this at your own risk.

This website will be helpful (if you're not confident in changing game files I wouldn't do it).

This will tell you how to change all the factions in the game into playable (all but rebels, as rebels = slave), even the main Roman Senate faction. Playing as Rebels/slaves or Roman Senate is buggy so not recommended for regular play.

The descr_strat.txt file can be found in the data\world\maps\campaign\imperial_campaign folder[...] [the below] section determines which factions are playable[...] To change this, simply cut and paste them into another section.

The section of descr_strat.txt you're looking for looks like this:

playable    
  romans_julii
  romans_brutii
  romans_scipii
end 
  unlockable    
  egypt
  seleucid
  carthage
  parthia
  gauls
  germans
  britons
  greek_cities
end 
nonplayable 
  romans_senate
  macedon
  pontus
  armenia
  dacia
  numidia
  scythia
  spain
  thrace
  slave
end

Bonus tip: You can look in the building browser of cities you do not control to see the units/buildings for that faction.
