Dear All

Repeat action for Rome v Carthage - this time I am playing Rome - seen bottom of the screen. Centre Hastii and Princeps in a straight line with single supporting unit in rear.

Basic Impetus Big Battles Carthage v Rome 2 Nov_1710

This picture shows impact of the two Gaul warbands - taking out a Roman unit straight away and creating a gap

Basic Impetus Big Battles Carthage v Rome 2 Nov_1711

This is a shot from behind Roman right flank - Carthage Spanish troops coming off hill

Basic Impetus Big Battles Carthage v Rome 2 Nov_1712

The Carthage flank general - although he lost this flank and is about to lose and rout he managed to take out two Roman units

Basic Impetus Big Battles Carthage v Rome 2 Nov_1713


Carthage ground through in the centre for victory - What happened to the Carthage Elephants ... nothing much they were bounced back by Roman skirmishers. Matt and I have now both lost using the Romans.

Cheers Jez

Why did you have your Roman front line units staggered? If they were in one solid unbroken line you would have all five of them fighing the enemy charge and they can support one another. To have two units behind the front three means only those three will be in contact with the enemy when they charge. A sure way to get beat, I would have thought. I always ensure my phalanx is a solid body from end to end.

Yes I always avoid having gaps in the infantry line if at all possible

Hi yes was trying to keep or show difference between Hastii and Princeps but a solid line would probably have been better. Another option is to field Roman infantry as large units. In the centre could then field 3 large units and a few skirmishers to meet maximum VD amounts for the centre command. Those 3 large units should be very powerful though.

Will try that out next time .........
