Balearic Islands join Tullus (campaign 42)

The month of August saw a sickness sweep through Tullus's Northern army, the trouble was traced back to bad provisions from Gaul. This did little to dampen the spirits of Tullus, who sailed to the Balearic islands the following month and recruited the renowned slingers of the province for his army. The province openly declaired it's loyalty to Tullus and his Spainish armies. The troops of Secundus would soon feel the lead shot of these excellent skirmishers.
