Battle of Sutrium

In ancient Rome the phrase 'to go to Sutrium' meant 'to be ready for war'. Sutrium was on the border between Roman and Etruscan territory and was the site of many battles. In our current ancients campaign it was the site of our first tabletop game.

The Romans handled this easily beating the Etruscans by destroying half of the Etruscan core units while only losing 1/4 of their core units - a 2:1 victory. My thanks to Don for hosting the game and allowing me to push the Etruscan cavalry. Unfortunately my performance was due a battlefield execution. I lost 5 core points worth of cavalry while only destroying 2 core points wort of enemy units.

Looks like quite the exciting game. Those beautiful battle lines ended up in absolute chaos by the final pic!

Yeah the Romans chewed us up pretty well.
