Godendag- the end of an error…..

You instinctively know sometimes that you are outclassed. Our last game was against the veteran players Nik Sharpe and Dave Handley with their Roman/Armenian combination. There was a faint glimmer of hope as we had faced off this army before. However, we were up against professionals……

The Northern duo placed heavy Roman horse on their right wing, beside legions of”full fat” heavy swordsmen, Armoured and supported. In the centre were the Armenian cataphracts but to their left were supporting Armenian bow and spearmen. Could our infamous five corps cavalry charge sweep this lot away?


Confusion in the centre as the legions crush the Persians


Even the light infantry are tough


Huns are still a match for mounted Romans though


The Persian home guard are called forward


Five corps may not be enogh


These Armenians would hold against our cavalry horde


I think it may be time to seek a new employer


Defeat but still three places from the bottom


And sixteen from the top!
