Bikkagern Follows Through

Following their recent victory Bikkagern and his Goth horde continue their advance into the Roman provinces. Baldinus has rallied his legions and as deployed to halt the Goth advance...…….
A View Down The Lines

The Vintage Shot

The Birds Are Circling, A Feast In The Offing Later

Bikkagern Leads His Nobles, Thundering Into The Legion

Meanwhile His Foot Warriors Do Likewise

His Subordinate, Clewless Leads Another Warband Into The Roman Auxillia

The Legion And Equites Are Getting The Worst Of It

Having Routed The Roman Light Cavalry The Goths Thunder Into The Roman Flank


The Right Flank Auxillia And Lanciarii Are Heavily Engaged Too

The Legion Is Valiantly Holding The Goth Nobles At Bay But Are Suddenly Hit In The Flank

With The Only Remaining Roman Cavalry Assailed To The Flank And Rear The Game Is up For The Romans 

With the Goth cavalry having free reign and all but two of the remaining Roman foot units engaged a Roman defeat was inevitable and we called a halt to proceedings.

The Goth advance continues and Baldinus's hold on the throne is shaky at best.

As ever we used Neil Thomas's Ancient And Medieval Rules with an addition to give generals a role and an additional morale roll if a unit was down to one base in melee.

    1. It's a very good period period of Roman history to game in, civil wars a plenty, barbarian incursions, changes in weapons, armour and the army.

    1. Glad you enjoyed it. As for you wanting the Goths to get an extra edge, seriously thinking of how I can blunt them ;~)

    1. I fear I could only offer them a glorious death given the current run of dice throws. Although I did one or two tactical blunders yesterday.
