DBA Late Roman vs Late Visigoths

DBA Battle time, Late Romans versus Late Visigoths. Standard rules & setup, Jack being the Barbaric Visigoths would be the attacker. I placed a Wood, a Marsh & a Hill.

II/78 Late Imperial Romans (a)Western 307 - 425AD
1x3 Cv(Gen), 1x3Cv, 2x2Lh, 2x4Bd, 3x4Ax, 2x2Ps, 1x3Kn

II/82 Later Visigothic (a)419 - 621AD
1x3Kn(Gen), 3x3Cv, 4x4Wb, 2x2Ps, 2x2Bw

The Setup, Jacks Visigoths on the left

Nice view of the Romans, camp by Baueda

Visigoth Cavalry

Visigoth Boyz, Warband & Archers

The Romans advance, Measurement sticks at the ready!

Jacks Visigoths smell blood!

Jacks right flank, his General & Cavalry support the Psiloi

BOOOM!! our little piece of Western Europe is rocked by an earthquake......
Weimaraner Seismic activity!!! Two large grey paws descend & Krazy Harvey wants to join in.
He must have an urge to help his Germanic Brethren! A timeout is called & after ten minutes of Harvey stroking he leaves, Jack quickly fixes the damage to the table.

Back to the action.... The lines advance.

Roman Psiloi secure the woods

Jack moves his General to a central position

Nice view of the Barbarians.

Roman Cavalry & Auxilia watch the Visigoths

Hun Light Horse attack a lone Visigoth Cavalry element

The lines clash, but Jack manages to draw off my Roman Cavalry.
The Roman Knights charge in against.....Bows (Aaaarrrgghh!)
Plus there's some Blade vs Warband match ups. I fear the worst(shaking head).

Yes!! Jack laughs out loud, combats go his way... I'm not a happy bunny.

Its quick & brutal, two rounds of combat & the Visigoths win 4 to 2.
The Romans lose 2 Blades, a Knight & a Auxilia.

Jacks back to winning ways. I curse my (in hindsight) poor setup.
This was the first game of the night, I would get my revenge in the next game ...Samurai Scrap!
