The game would be a straight forward head on clash with a slight nod to our on going fictional encounters between Bikka the Goth and Rome.
The Romans had deployed for battle in front of their encampment ready to receive the Goth attack. Bikka wasted no time ordering an all out assault across the front.
I had beforehand knocked out Excel spreadsheets with all the stats for each army, armed with these and the playsheets the only real recourse for referring to the rule book was to make sure we had not lapsed into Hail Powder with some of the combat effects, ie. Shaken, disorder and things like that.
The game rattled along well despite the odd reference to the rule book, how did it go? Well let's just say that apart from not getting my legionary units into battle line the Gothic victory was down 50% to the dreaded dice gods has much as the 50% of the lightening strike of the Goth cavalry. Some game shots follow.
I think some decimation may be in order.
