HAIL CAESAR WARGAME


Here are some photos of a game using the Hail Caesar rules that was played today. The game involved a Dacian horde attacking a Roman frontier fort that was held by a scratch force of Roman Auxilia. Roman cavalry and infantry were coming to the rescue. The Calvary arrived but the infantry simply refused to hurry up and arrive - rolling 1 on a d6 six each time to test if they did show up did not help at all! The Dacians captured the fort after some stiff fighting and the Roman cavalry charged into the Dacians but did not do very well. When the Roman infantry finally did show up the game only had three turns to go, but even so the Legionaries managed to do great damage to the Dacians. Unfortunately for the Legionaries they simply ran out of time to turn the battle around and after routing the Dacians facing them would have had to deal with a veritable horde of Dacians rushing their way. All that was left for the Legionaries was to withdraw in good order and cover the retreat of the defeated cavalry. There was a very nice Roman fort on the table. The figures were all 28mm and all nicely painted. It was a good game and reflected well on the rules which work very well.
