Goths March Ever Onward

Dave arrived today to once again command the Gothic hordes has they push the Roman field armies back into the Empire.
Once again the gods appear to have blunted the Roman weapons and the Goths continue their advance further across the Empire.
On the left the first Roman cavalry unit is destroyed, their supports valiantly fight on.
The Roman cataphracts are left out on a limb 
The Roman cavalry are pushed back further but do not break, if they are pushed back next time they will be off the table and deemed destroyed.
Over on the other flank the Roman auxiliaries are put to flight.
The Roman centre holds firm but with it's flanks crumbling a withdrawal is ordered.
Another defeat for the Roman field force, it appears the gods have deserted them yet again, but then again it could just be me in command 😂
