The Battle of Narona

Terentius' 1st Moesian horse ride forward to slow the advance of the Secundian cohorts with showers of javelins. Their quick ponies speed them up to the lines of Flaccus within minutes, however before they can launch their assault, Stuba Bowmonica's Sarmation horse slam into them.
Stuba's heavy armoured Sarmations power through the cloud of missiles and smash the Moesian formation to pieces. The Moesians turn and try to regroup but the momentum is with the Sarmations and they are quickly over run and destroyed. As the Cohorts of the V Macedonica tramp forward, elements of their shattered cavalry retreat back through their lines.The Legionaries jeer and call after them but to no availStuba was wounded in the leg with a javelin but still managed to carry the day and push his men on. Retiring from the field soon after, he knew his name had been cleared from the disgrace at Valentia.

Flaccus saw everything from the far right of the field, as Stuba retired he knew he had done his job, the Terentian cavalry were gone and Flaccus still had his Pannonian cavalry behind him. As he watched the Sarmations regroup behind the lines, he cursed the lose of its veterans at Valentia, the unit was now a shadow of it's former self.

Ave!

Secundus said...

WarHammer Ancient Battles, Its the one and only for me. We also used the Heirs of Empire rule set which we got from the Inter-net and is one persons expansion on WarHammer.

Thanks - I recall that you had dabbled with other rulesets, so was wondering.

Hmm, I'll have to look Heirs of Empire up - how have you combined it with WAB?

Ave!

A quick search did not turn it up - would you recall where on the Internet you had found "Heirs of Empire"?

Ave!

Well I must say that this campaign seems to be going alright, for now. A mere flesh wound in the leg, that should be ok in a week or two if gangrene doesn't set in !!!!

Sorry I think it's called 'Heirs of Caeser', but I'm pretty sure the link has long gone, someone else asked for it a while ago and Alanicus had to send him a link via e-mail. Still with this new name something might crop up. I think it was on some WAB site.

Hail Stuba and well done on dicing up those moesians. Your Name is cleared after the stain of Valentia.

OMG thats really you in that helmet

Secundus said...

Of Course it is! Secundus fights all his own battles, mind you that last Gaul burst all over me. That's the trouble with Gauls, once you stick'em with a bit of the old cold iron, they go off everywhere. It's because they get themselves so pumped up standing in those bloody Warbands of theirs.
