As both lines closed, the center became a large shoving match as the more nimble Roman Legions tried to out-muscle the larger Gallic hordes. Both sides began taking casualties. Note that the Roman Hastati and Princepes have the option to line-swap when needed.
Fighting is hard in the center but notice that the Roman cavalry (in the background) is beginning to outflank the Carthaginian army. The Carthaginian camp is under threat of attack. Quickly the Carthaginians respond by sending their light troops back to protect the camp.
Grinding in the center continues while Roman cavalry on the Roman right attempts to outflank the Carthaginian left. A lot of move and counter-move activities while each jockeys for position. The Carthaginian cavalry is pushed back and nearly forced off-table.
Control for the center continues. The Romans in the left-center have gotten themselves into a position to launch coordinated attacks against one of the large Gallic hordes. Horde #1 is scattered!
While the initial attack upon the Carthaginian camp was repulsed by a well-timed occupation of the camp by Numidians, Gallic Horde #2 is attacked from the flank by cavalry. Carthaginians on the right-center have turned in to threaten the Romans. Casualties are accruing everywhere.
In the center, The Roman CinC slips by an advancing enemy to attack Carthaginian spearmen in the flank. Can this cavalry defeat the spearmen before they, themselves, can destroy legion they face?
Yes, they do! In addition to the slaughter in the center, Roman cavalry occupies the enemy camp. The Romans win 12 Tokens to 4. Hooray!
That was a good fight! Fun too!
