Rob and Jamie took on the roles of opposing Roman officials (the Comes Saxoni Litoris and the Governor of Britannia Secundus respectively). I supported Rob with a bunch of Saxon foederati whilst Andy ran a bunch of Welsh and Irish mercenaries in Jamie's service.
The battlefield was fairly unexciting - mostly open but with a few scattered woods.

off against Jamie's Cumbrogi (left background) and Andy's Romans.

is where another Gothic medium cavalry unit used to be!
The centre of the field degenerated into a massive scrum.

|Jamie and Rob take stock...|
|... whilst Andy holds forth on the unreliability of Gildas as a source.|
|Alas, a large Cumbrogi warband gets the worse of a fight with the |
Saxons and is routed.
|The Crisis - Rob's red Legionary units (among the last not taken to|
mainland Europe by Constantine) fight Jamie's Equites Alares.
|The final position - the Equites Alares have been routed.|
I like Basic Impetus and intend to keep producing more Late Romans. Probably Legionarii next to replace the Irregular Republicans I'm using as stand-ins.
