    I wouldn't personally recommend it due to the huge amount of losses, but wiki has a guide for that located here

    Edit: I just saw the "no recruits" bit in your post as well, which I initially just read it as no elite troops. You can use militia as stand in for recruits for most part, they perform similar but will likely lower the losses by a small amount due to their higher HP and attack...

    You can use a combat simulator like https://en.tsomaps.com/adv-calc/ to resim the wiki guide to work with militia and/or soldiers as main losses.

    I haven't tried myself but I understand it can be done using only buffkills on leader camps (e.g. Ballista + Assassin + Flaming Arrow combos). Sounds a bit expensive, but much less headache than trying to use no elites or recruits. I would try it on test and make a list first. Because of the random factor with arrows it seems possible that you might fail a sector even if it worked previously, so it might be worth trying it a few times to refine attacks and determine what your odds are like.

    you can use buffs on all the leader camps and done
    i did a quick test, if i remember it was:
    ballista and assassin on first
    and then ballista, assassin, flaming arrows on all the others
    Leader of The Hell Unleashed [THU] on Newfoundland
    Addicted to Settlers, coffee and chocolate, in that order

    Took me five minutes on testserver, but just completed third thief with 9 flaming arrows, 1 Assassin, 8 Ranged Support*. You won't get extra XP from Scouting Post, etc. but if you're swimming in gems/star coins, it's certainly an easy mode option.

    * Not available in merchant outside testserver. Just used it for quick mode test, it could probably be done with star coin available options though.
