Here’s the first horde of barbarians to fight my Imperial Romans: a bunch of nasty, unwashed British hooligans!
Chariots and light cavalry are out in front in two commands, while the infantry is divided into three commands behind them. Bare nekkid fanatics are in a column on the right (proportionately, the biggest penises in wargaming: small, but well formed).
Behind them, Queen Boudacious leads the cavalry reserve.
From the front.
The Queen and her select warriors. The front four units are medium cavalry and the back two heavy cavalry. Yes, I know historical Brits didn’t have that but a) these are fantasy Brits and; b) those units can double as more or elite medium cavalry or Germanic heavy cavalry.
I am going to try Triumph!, Hail Caesar, and To the Strongest! as fast play rules, Andrew. But if I want REAL fast play, I can just tack these onto some paper DBA movement trays and play straight up DBA. That whole horde would be about 17 DBA stands using 15mm basing.
