Lunch was over.
Fed and watered, we set about the game once again.
A meeting of the Roman commanders was had and we decided to stick to Glenns original plan.
Andy had a meeting with himself as to how to deal with the Romans who had weakened his centre and we're now threatening each flank at the river crossing points.
In classic military style, all good plans never survive contact with the enemy.
This is how it panned out.
|As my Legionaries, finally got across the bridge, the threat of advancing|
warbands forced them onto the hill.
But things were still moving slowly for the Romans.
|The Final positions when we called it.|
Well, what a game of very mixed results.
Seven hours of gaming.
We gave the British a well deserved Tactical Victory.
Each side had a broken division, But the Roman one was Paullinus, the Roman CinC.
Both sides still had plenty of fight left in them.
The British had taken slightly more casualties.
But were still in a strong position.
I had lost a single unit of cavalry out of my two divisions
Andy had a full untouched division each of Cavaly and Warbands/Chariots.
Glenn still had a Full Auxiliary division minus a small Bow unit.
But time caught up with us.
It would have been great to play it to a completion, maybe another day.
Big thanks to Andy & Glenn for a great day of Gaming, much laughs and piss taking.
We will have to make the Saturday games a semi regular thing, methinks.
