Trebica

Carthage vs Rome, in a famous battle, refought with the Impetus rules, and organised by Matt who was able to give command of the Romans to people who had never heard of the battle before.


The Romans had three separate commands, two flanks and an extremely strong centre vs the Carthaginian 'two'. Tel's commanding Hastubal on the left, while Tony was an apparently indecisive Hannibal on the right.



It was then that the trap was sprung with the third Carthage command popping out of the woods and hitting the Romans in the flank and rear.





Hastubal gets trapped in a stand off on the flank, but the damage to the Roman right had already been done, The Roman left is gone completely, and only the surrounded centre holds on,
