Tolosan Visigoth meet Indio-Scythian
Mis à jour : juin 7
Foot DC under command of HUUB were to meet a great challenge, tribal cataphracts, all SUP under command of JILU
A heavy mobile camp
Did you say you heard a strange noise coming from the indian's rank ..armor ...
The other flank much "lighter"
The fearless PSC plastic soldiers all ready
The warbands are massed and ready . the terrain you see is rough
Long lines indeed and the eternal cofee cups. Both have their chances but what about tokens and dice !
The cats are advancing
Strange, the SK went in the rough terrain and the bucelarri on the upper left are going all alone straight for the indian infantry, ever heard of balaklava ?
Yep the warbands did retreat a bit but the gardingi went forward to slow some enemy down
here they come all SUP
The bucelarii have made contact but lack support and the gardingi just try to slow down a large cats TUG
The fight is on
But the TV failed to pin the shooty cavalry down and one TUG turned moved and reformed behind the bucelarii ( all out of the 4 MU at the moment of the move )..
The gardingi will flee
Now in range
The bucelarii still out there all alone
And the rear charge
and many other charges The TV will have to use the white dice strategy but will it work ?
contact has been made
It hurts in the back
OK the white dice strategy has to be reviewed as it did not work
The cats did just wipe out a bucelarri TUG that was sent to slow them down
The cats are cutting down the warbands ( the nellies are not bad )
The bucelarri that had charged the indian infantry are now destroyed , but the TV finally conquered the rough ground
The TV army is being detroyed but managed to kill a nellie base
Finaly the TV managed to manoeuver and hit the large cats TUG and the gardingi will kill the unit !
TV have a victory on one flank but the rest of the army is in bad shape
End of the game the TV are destroyed and so the Nellies will survive one more battle
The Tolosan Visigothic army faced a tough opponent but let it come forward too easely considering that the TV won initiative ! It did not try to manoeuver and outflank the very heavies tribal close sup cats ..and the now most famous charge of the bucelarii was a good move ...but without support failed !
Everyone had fun and I hope so did you when reading this article
