|Late Romans deployed|
|Goth infantry surge forward|
|Both armies advance|
|Cavalry clash on the Goth left flank|
Last Wednesday night Rick and I met down at the Vikings Club in Lanyon for a Late Romans vs Goths, 100 point L'Art de La Guerre(ADLG) game. It was quite a reasonable turn out at the club for a mid week, mid winter, night. There were some fine looking games played - a 28mm Impetus game with Numidians vs Carthaginians, a naval Napoleonic game and a 28mm Ronin Samurai game as well.
Here are a few photos of our game. The Goths failed to distinguish themselves yet again and the game was over fairly quickly once the main infantry combat was resolved over a few turns. Most of the individual melees seemed to depend on how well you rolled your dice, with the addition of only a few factors and modifiers. We're still getting the hang of the rules and not sure of how a few things work. Rereading of the rules is obviously required.
