Ostensibly, the Suebi may have the easiest startups of all. Aside from having a supply centre in their capital, the Suebi also have plenty of room to expand either west or east or even south, depending on their preference.
Ideally, the first thing you need to do as the Suebi is to take out as many supply centres as possible. You have control of Kimbrolandam as well as your home turf of Swebolandam. Use your army in Kimbrolandam to overrun the Kongea basin to the west of Kimbrolandam, then use your remaining free army to launch an invasion into Hattolandam to obtain its supply centre. Once this is done, you can practically conquer as many as three territories per turn as opposed to just one or two, although it will be problematic trying to keep your armies together to perform overruns.
By now, however, you should now control at least four territories and three armies. Place your third army back in your capital, and then use it to overrun your way into Rugolandam. From this point on you have two choices — either attack in the west or the south, or attack in the east. Ideally, however, it would be wise to gather more supply centres throughout the land so that you can continue overrunning more territories. The best target for this would be the region of Alpes to the south: try to reach it before the Romans or the Arverni arrive so that you can then invade downwards, capturing Cisalpinia and eventually eliminating the Romans from the game. The ambitions of the Arverni have ensured that they have plenty of enemies within their lands who may be willing to make alliances with you given the chance. However, if the Sarmatians to the east become too much of a threat, don't be afraid of giving up territory if you have to secure your borders. The Sarmatians are fairly dangerous opponents to your infantry-based armies, so it would be wise perhaps to find a means of accommodaating them, or to eliminate them out as quickly as possible before they become too large to take down.
