Continuing the series in Hispania, the Later Visigoths (III/83a) meet the Early Byzantine (III/4b) for three games. Terrain selection is either arable or hilly as the actual campaigns took place in the provinces of Baetica and Iberia.

Wow, tough to be the general in a couple of these games. I really like the style in which your figures are painted and based. They're beautiful. Always look forward to reading the battle reports and campaigns you post. Thanks very much for sharing.

Byzantine cavalry can outperform the Visigoth nobles (3Kn). Knowing this, the Visigothic general must create a breakthrough at times to give the rest of his mounted force a slight advantage. Nonetheless, there are times when this does not always work.
