The next battle in this Gallic War campaign test run featured the Helvetii attacking a Roman-affiliated tribe, the Allobroges. Again, this one was done with DBA.
The Allobroges picked quite a big built-up area, so I assumed that this would be one of their major settlements they were defending, so they get a base of Denizens (i.e. a base of newly-painted Baccus 6mm Amazon spearwomen) to defend it. I think the odds were supposed to be 3 Helvetii strength points against 2 Allobroges, but the campaign map is telling me I am wrong...I will need to check that. Anyway, assuming it was 3 vs 2 that translated into a 15-base army for the Helvetii and a 10-base army for the Allobroges. There was no difference in quality in this game.
3 x Cavalry (including General)
6 x Warband (4Wb)
1 x Psiloi
1 x Denizens (in the settlement)
5 x Cavalry (including General)
9 x Warband (4Wb)
1 x Psiloi
|The main Allobroges' strength is in and around their settlement|
|But they have a sizeable detachment of foot warriors guarding the hill to the right|
|The Helvetii approach from the bottom, with their main strength to the left|
|The Helvetii move directly to attack: foot warriors towards the Allobroges' settlement, their Cavalry towards the gap between the hills (centre-right)|
|The Allobroges, finding their left unopposed, move a portion of their warriors and youths into the woods towards the Helvetii's right flank.|
|The Helvetii get ready to assault the hill settlement...|
|And it begins! The Helvetii warriors get a foothold onto the hill|
|The Allobroges' contingent gets ready to put in its' flank attack|
|The Helvetii begina second assault|
|It breaks in to the settlement! The Allobroges fled at this point...|
As in all this series of battles, figures by Baccus 6mm and buildings by Timecast.
