Welcome / Bienvenu

This blog presents my different wargames armies, after action reports, campaigns which I have run, some scenarios and a presentation of some of the different rules I play. The pages at the top of the blog contain historical information on the periods that interest me. They are an aid to my poor memory, and not in any way exhaustive nor necessarily correct. As I am an Englishman living in France, some pages are in English and others in French...sorry, I am too lazy to translate...

I hope this blog offers you much enjoyment and some inspiration !

Turn 1

No revenue is collected.

The change of ruler step is skipped on the first turn.

The Senon Celts attack Tarentum and win a minor victory, taking a province from the Greeks.
The Etruscans attack the Boian Celts, winning a major victory and taking both of their provinces.  The Boian Celts become the Subject Inactive Power of the Etruscans.
The Syracusans fight off the Bruttians, winning a minor victory that brings about no territorial gain.

Rome now launches its attack against the Etruscans, both sides fighting with a 80 pt army.

The legions engage the battle on their left and center, their Latin allies closing off the right flank to the Etruscan horse, massed together. The Etruscan phalanx moves into contact along its entire length.  The battle is ferocious, but the attempts by Roman hastati to outflank the enemy fail, due to strong resistance from psiloi in the woods on the Etruscan far right.  

The Roman army steadily replaces its casaulties in the front line, but the irruption of the Etruscan horse
causes heavy losses amongst the weakened rear ranks.  The Roman consul falls, and the Etruscans win a decisive victory, losing 4 units out of 6 and having more intact medium cavalry than Rome.

The first campaign turn has seen a considerable expansion of the Etruscan dodecapole, which now dominates the whole of northern Italy.

No external power intervenes.

Roman Civic Development is at -5 pts.
