|German warbands. Arminius in the center.|
|Romans. Who's idea was it to put the cavalry in the woods?|
Of course that is the perennial problem with historical scenarios; who ever has the exact order of battle? Warry's reconstruction calls for some 28000 legionaries, 2 cohorts of Praetorian Guards and 30000 auxilia plus allied tribesmen and cavalry. We do the best we can with the figures available. The Germans were made up from my Spanish and Goth tribesmen. I just used the unit stats as given in the Army List Book.
|Both sides advance hampered by low command rolls.|
|Skirmishers getting engaged. German left hanging back.|
|Cavalry in the woods trying to turn flank. Legionaries getting stuck in.|
|Some times my Break Test rolls really suck.|
|To and fro fighting in the center.|
|Roman supports add weight to the line.|
|Roman right breaks into German left and turns flank of German center.|
It had been a tough slog, but with Arminius dead Germanicus could celebrate a great victory and claim that revenge for the Varus disaster had been finally exacted.
