|Meanwhile, the Romans' IX Legion and Numidian cavalry attempt to outflank the Britons' right flank. But surely the Britons will react to this obvious move?|
|But the Roman cavalry on the right are in worsening trouble, some having been routed already and the remainder becoming increasingly disordered under the onslaught of the Britons' horse. Notice the development of the Romans' flank attack though...|
|The same position from a differnet angle. You can see on the extreme right that the Britons' light horsemen are reforming, having seen off the Roman cavalry on that wing.|
|The Britons' left has now been destroyed by Roman cavalry and the IX Legion. The combination of II Legion and Numidian cavalry has defeated the Britons in the centre too. At this point, the Britons' morale collapsed, giving victory to the Romans.|
A hard-fought contest, with the Britons and their slightly weaker forces coming close to pulling off an unlikley victory, but unfortunately the rules penalize the command abilities of leaders involved in close combat heavily, so although the Britons' leader led his cavalry to personal victory, he was unable to command his army effectively and the Romans, with a more decentralized structure, were able to continue their outflanking move which ultimately brought success.
