in wargaming all we do is play with toy soldiers, its not real, it never can be, it never will be, so lets lighten up.

His charisma must be only skin-deep.

I suspect a very depressed army, having lost their Great White Hope in their first major encounter may be more open to persuasion in this period than you effete Roman types might think.

We believe he was cursed by a cabal of Roman priests who prayed for his failure. We would never countenance such treachery.
This is the voice of world control. I bring you peace.

his army rolled quite well in "the lost our charismatic magic sword wielding leader" test and not one unit actually broke and ran..,

Well,well. What an turn of events.......I hope that Artorius wasn't being too brave....He could have been away from the me lee whilst still in command structure.
Anyway could you lot tell me how many units /points cost were destroyed,and what you intend to do with Artorius.I understand that Hagar magister militum per Hispanica is offering 100 solidus for his ransom (a contribution I may add,I'm sure other Romans will add to this amount).
Might be time to settle the barbarians across the Rhine?
Next up Stilico VS the barbarian confederation et cetera.

And we'll done rhino!

He was extremely brave..right in the very front rank.It is understood that he had been advised "to big it up" in action so as to gain maximum coverage of his heroic and leadership qualities.Stilico is thinking about the issue..
Vandal lost 2 alan light cavalry units.Romas lost 1 light cavalry unit and one horse archer unit, their commander and his bodyguard..shit happens. The romans had to roll for each unit, they all passed and retired in good order.The Vandals appeared to get very drunk

Exactly.

And all wargaming is best when its just play.

By the way ... lovely figures in those pictures. : )
