The Rise of Alortigis

And so it starts... Alortigis, chief of the ______i, has fallen upon his enemies, the ______i, and defeated them in a mighty battle.

Alortigis's band at bottom of the picture.

Forces advance.

Contact is made.


Alortigis's men claim their first victory.


The battle is even on the left...

...or is until the caetrati commit at the right time to swing the fight.

Victory! Of the enemy, only the cavalry and the skirmishers escape.
It remains to be seen how the vanquished will react to this defeat, but if they refuse to accept Alortigis as overlord they will likely see their homes dismantled, their crops burnt, and their wives and children sold into slavery.

We may be hearing more of this fellow...

  5. So did the battle take one hour or less? It sure seems that Alortigis made short work of his opponents.

    1. Yep, ten turns or so took about 30 minutes. Very quick and quite good fun.

    1. Thanks Bill - it is a surprisingly enjoyable set of rules considering how basic the whole thing is.
