Late Roman Dux Bellorum Game

Last Saturday afternoon Craig came over to my place and we played a Dux Bellorum game with two Late Roman armies. Here are a few photos of our game. Craig, fresh from winning the Saga comp at Cancon last weekend with his Saracens, was the aggressor and in pretty good form with the dice. He soon had my troops back pedalling. My casualties quickly mounted and my leadership points were quickly depleted! In the end I managed to inflict a few casualties but failed a morale test with one unit and had only two units remaining on the table who promptly routed. Thanks to Craig for a fun game.
