The Army of Thrace arrives (Campaign 105)
Concealed within a huge cloud of dust, the Army of Thrace trudges onto the Alluvial planes outside Narona and takes up it's position. Expecting a tiny vexillation of tired Legionaries, Terentius is amazed at the size of Flaccus's force. He soon regains his composure after his scouts report on the formations that lay ahead on the plane. "He has an army of slaves!!" laughs Terentius. His army of elite Roman Legionaries will be able to cut this rabble to pieces within an hour.
Just to be on the safe side and to calm his Tribunes, Terentius orders a Cohort of marines from the supporting fleet to re-enforce him at once. Victory is now guarantied.
Above, Terentius prepares for battle.
