Adrianopole has fascinated more than a few historians, perhaps because it was one of those battles that should not have been lost. The historical significance of it has been somewhat exagerrated, it certainly was not the turning point that many have seen. This custom battle is based on the latest theories about it: Forces more balanced than in the descriptions of the Roman survivors, Goths light and heavy infantry on a ridge apart from the laager, Horse not predominant in Gothic forces,foot soldiers basis for both armies, and comparable training for each army. It is also reasonable to think that the Roman legions were a far cry from the supremely organized fighting force it was at the time of Caesar or Marcus Aurelius.
Play it on hard: Your challenge is to prevent either flank from being shattered by Gothic cavalry, otherwise you are lost. Prepare solid blocks of heavy infantry on each flank. Yet do not stay on the defense as skirmishers will wear your center down with disastrous effect on morale. Do not sacrifice your cavalry needlessly and too early in the fight...
