    We had a couple games last night as members got accustomed to DBA 3.0.

    The first game saw the Huns invade Frankish lands. I formed up in a formation approximating a square. Then the Huns rode down upon us.

    The second game saw the Western Empire invaded by the Huns. A Roman cataphract unit took exception to this and cut a swath through the steppe nomads. AAR

    You guys think my Hun shields are too bright?

    That’s a nice looking game.

    Bright red, green, yellow shields. Maybe too bright. Did the Huns have shield patterns? Something painted/stuck over the colours?

    I find it hard to get images of Hun Shields. Maybe some more brown ones. The couple images I find don’t have designs, but then who knows the sources.

    Barker’s Armies and Enemies of Imperial Rome says the Huns had brightly colored caps lined with fur, other garments of various skins (including mouse) but is mum about shields.
