Tamil Indian v Early Imperial Roman
Another Monday night DBM scrap - somehow the Romans found themselves in India (no compasses maybe!). We went down 4:6 to the invaders. They managed to break one of our small commands before time was called. The Romans were one point off loosing two commands (half a point each - then the army break point would have been reached).
Of small note - the enemy cataphracts (Kn(X)) actually managed to catch
an isolated Wb(F) and kill him. Still an awful lot of points [(5 x 11) +
(1 x 21)] to achieve very little. Should we all be calling for a
reduction in cost of this troop type?
Again my major contribution was to throw a number of ones during vital melees. 6 elements lost in one round but still the command was hanging on.
My movement dice throws have definitely improved. However this has not been enough to get me out of the 'handicap section' of our club. Should somebody be getting too cocky, with too many wins, either Tim or myself are allocated to them as 'assistants'.
Isn't it good to be valued!
