On Sunday afternoon, a couple of weeks ago, Craig came over to my place and we played a 32 point Dux Bellorum game with his Early Saxons attacking my Romano-British. We used the scenario, the Battle at Bassa's Ford, in the Age of Arthur WAB supplement (pp. 102-103) but forgot to do the single combat at the start! The idea was to link our Dux Bellorum games with the Age of Arthur WAB campaign, The Raiding Season (pp.133-145).
The Saxons were the attackers and quickly surged across the river to attack the Romano-British Ordinary Shieldwall units. It was a close and exciting game that came right down the wire to the last turn, when my skirmishers managed to destroy the Saxon Foot companions by shooting, causing an automatic 75% casualties Saxon rout. This was a mighty victory for the Romano-British so our next game will be Scenario 1, the Battle on the River Glein (p.98).
