Introduction
Well, you are here. I assunme you want to dominate the world and from a Hegemony worthy of time as Sparta? Good, good. So first, start a sandbox campaign, pick Sparta, then read this guide to try and win.
Infrastructure & Logistics
First off, you got to build up your infrastructure. You already have some infrastructure, but it will grow complex as you advance. Your armies need to rally at a place where resupply is possible without the city suffering.
After this has been done, conduct light skirmishes with Messenia and Arcadia to capture slaves to work in your mines. Your current mines may/may not be already manned, so when you push into Arcadia and Messenia, instead of squeezing 40 of your Gold for workers to only pay you 40 instead of 80 back, use slaves. You gain full profit for a spear won price.
Farms.
A pain in my♥♥♥♥♥♥
FARMS! GRRRR! The stomach of your army. Your army marches on its stomach, as Napoleon stated. As you advance, it is recommended you do it slowly, so to keep your army supplied. Starving troops fight less as well as troops whi have had a hearty meal.
Ah, naval trade/supply.
Your cargo ships automatically do everythng, all you need do is trade between 2 coastal cities.
Your triremes can also carry up to 500 tons of food. Very useful if trade is impossible or blockaded.
First Invasion
Here you lead an assault one one of your neighbours. I personally go Messenia as they are significantly easier. Arcadia are shrouded in mountains, meaning their peltasts will have a field day with your elite hoplites.
March 2 tasks forces into Messenia. One w/ catapults one w/out. Make sure the one w/out them is a strong infantry core so you can pin down more Messenian forces.
As your infantry are fighting the Messenian troops in the North, your Southern Assault Force, w/ catapults, should be seizing as many cities as possible. Ignore the capital and capture all the coastal cities. Then gather your forces to attack a weakened Messenia.

PRO TIP: I personally like to wear down my enemies manpower in the field so that when I attack the cities, little to no resistance is ecnountered.
