Village Raid - Another Late Roman Dux Bellorum Game

Raiders advance cavalry on both flanks towards the village

Ordinary allied warriors fight on the edge of the village

Last week Craig and I met down at the Vikings club for another Late Roman Dux Bellroom game. This time the scenario was a village raid with Craig as the attacker and me as defender. For a bit of variety we both had six points of ordinary warriors, as allies, in our 32 point armies. Here are a few photos of our game. In the end it was a fairly easy victory for the defenders with the attackers losing four units and finishing with no chance of taking the village. Thanks to Craig for a fun game. I've started painting my Irish army and hopefully will have a few photos of some units to post shortly.

    1. Thanks Colin, Dux Bellorum is a great set of rules and would convert quite well for Bronze Age warfare as in the Sumer to Sargon blog.
