The reason why I decided to post this game is because it pertains to a few current discussions. I played this game seconds after being destroyed by Thermopoly. His Gothic army in the previous game massacred me (Vandals) to shreads. After the game we spoke of low denarii games and I told Thermo that these armies in low denarii are surprise weapons. Once discovered they are useless for the next battle, as opponent is now able to adjust his army. Therm offered for me to prove my theory, and so we played this game. This time I picked an ERE army. Keep in mind this game is played with those hated TWPL rules.
Things to keep in mind:
1.Therm uses the same army and wants me to prove my theory that his army will not survive the second battle.
2.Watch the four ERE Cataphracts as they take on 8 various Gothic cavalry units and prove why the Catas are so dominating against the all other non-clibanarii cavalry units.
3.This game is the first time when I found out that no all archers have the same range. I pay a horrible price for this, but even that cannot stop the might of ROME.
With archers gone and no missile support, facing an enemy who has a decisive cavalry and missile advantage, the Romans are still unwavering. Will the Goths utilize their advantages? or will they fall to the Eagles of the East?
Watch and enjoy... Please leave a comment if you can.
