Very good write up and scenario design. I have a great interest in this battle. I am going to bookmark your page and will probably try this scenario.

Thank you Diocletian……really was an important battle in history…..when I started Ancients, I was drawn to these last days of the Roman Empire vs goths, vandals , Huns, and others…….maybe those days are more similar to current world events than we realize….

Thanks for taking a look….

scenario looks good and fun.

one thing: you say the gothic war bands have wild fighters, with a reroll of one die on the first round of combat.

just to be clear; WF is a reroll on the first round of combat of the game and then never again, not each combat. that's why it's usually 3, not 1. for a reroll each combat try tough fighters.

Thanks Stew for catching that about wild fighters….I just corrected the scenario. I appreciate it.
