The Roman response was to send a Legion,and Auxilliaries to "deal" with the uprising.
Paul took charge of the Romans and Brian commanded the Tribes,whilst I "officiated".
The scenario called for the Romans to defeat the Tribes,burn the "city" and capture Astorix.
This tussle went on for most of the game,Brian reinforcing his first line with a good second line support,while Paul elected to reinforce his line of cavalry,which weren't as good as Brian's,with a cohort of Aux. infantry.This proved very effective and Brian was driven back.
Brian's assault on Paul's right flank is shown here,his "primus" cohort is being beaten and pushed back,however his morale was superb, and he managed to hang on,and with the support of his other cohort swung the melee in his favour.Then a big mistake ........Paul,obviously forgetting Brian's reputation as "Reggie the commander killer" put his command figure into the melee,and guess what ? Yes,he died at the hands of that well-known,super-duper dice thrower,"Reggie" The result was that everthing on that side of the board had to take morale,and the Romans failed,flank lost!!.
Whilst the Romans on their right flank were mourning the passing of their commander,in the centre things were not going too badly,as you can see from this photo,the Tribes are retiring along the whole front,and on the left flank of the Romans,batle has been joined.Brian was determined to win this flank,and sent warband after warband into the fray,however Paul was also determined to win this flank,and he kept sending a mixture of cohorts from the Legion as well as Auxilliary infantry forward to stem the tide of Brian's warbands.
