Roman: Card 1 Move- Poor dice for the Roman Centre and cavalry, there is not enough movement to reach the enemy so they remain in position. Marco rolls high and even, his cavalry forms Drungus and storms uphill into Casno’s fresh war band but comes unstuck and is held in melee.
Card 3 – Lull. Card 4 Army Morale – no action. Card 5- Manoeuvre- no action.
Card 6 Move- This is what the Roman General has been waiting for. Falco’s troops rush the Pict centre but one Roman unit is driven back by archery. The other makes contact but is held by the Picts who enjoy the advantage of numbers and ground, Falco’s archers shoot into the Picts Shocking them.
The Legions roll high and even and turn to face and then assault the two Pict War bands that form the link between the Pict Centre and their flanking cavalry. They throw their spears before contact routing one unit and driving the other into the safety of the forest.
The Roman cavalry roll low and don’t move. Card 7- Manoeuvre, no action. Card 8 Command – Falco rallies his unit.
