One of the great joys of wargaming is of course writing and re-writing army lists. To the uninitiated, this involves poring over the lists, deciding what to buy, poring over the lists, buying some more miniatures and so on…….. One added complication this year is that the games in Virtus 2015 are two and a half hours long. The time between rounds will of necessity be short. My answer to freeing up time for the draw between rounds is win or lose in the first hour!
Army number 86 Late Imperial Roman ( Julian at Argentoratum AD357)
Brilliant General- Julian
Four units of the Primani Legion ( heavy swordsmen, impact, with support)
Two light artillery units
Two light infantry bow units
Second Corps- Competent, Severus
Four Auxilia from the Cornuti and Bracchiati ( Medium swordsmen impact and support)
Two legionary units from “other legions” ( Heavy swordsmen impact, support)
Two light infantry bow
Third Corps, competent commander – Innocentius (thank you Mr M Lane!)
Two Equites Heavy Cavalry- impact elite
Two Cataphracts….also elite
Two Alan light cavalry elite. Technically not available until 389 AD but hey😊😉
So there we have it, a strong central legionary command, supported by two small but high quality flank commands. What could possibly go wrong? One hour play maximum!
P.S. BADCON are urgently asking for players to commit to their tourney at the end of February. Commit today!
