Ambushed in the Foothills, Turn 1

Postby Coriolanus » Mon Apr 14, 2014 4:29 pm

Prelude: http://www.brikwars.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=12257

Image
The Roman cavalry split into two columns and advance.

Image
The Legionaries form up against the Lingoni.

Image
The Lingoni leader shouts something, but the Legionaries only understand Latin so they conclude it was some sort of complicated war-cry.

Image
Two warriors charge General Aemilius Paulus, and his pilum is deflected by the warrior's shield.

Image
A Legionary bravely takes the damage while Aemilius Paulus decapitates one of his attackers.

Image
Poor damage rolls mean only one warrior falls to the pilum.

Image
In the ensuing melee, 1 Legionary and two warriors are killed.

Image
The Drakhirri scout and General Zermanion manage to chop off a couple tree branches, and the Roman fails his damage roll.

Image
But the General makes a heroic attack and cleaves the cavalryman in twain after he fails his parry.

Image
The horse-archers fire but fail to kill anything.

Overview:
Image

Kills:
Romans: 4
Lingoni: 2
Drakhirri: 1

Send in orders for turn 2!

Looks like a pretty cool battle! must have been somewhat difficult to find that many roman legionaires?

Probably. Either way, everything about this is glorious.

I'm back and taking control of my Romans.

I am very sorry for my absence.

I already gave them to Apollyon for this battle, you could ask him if you could have them for the rest of this battle. But either way I'll be having another, larger battle as soon as my pick-a-brick order comes in so there will be plenty of factions to go around.

I sent Apollyon a message and if he is fine with it I'll split the Romans and you each can command a part. Otherwise I will have another battle coming soon.

Vami you can continue to play them as they were reserved for you.

Looking forward to that larger battle Coriolanus.
