How would the Romans fare under the command of their new owner? Mark B's Sassanids were about to find out...
The Sassanid light cavalry screen failed to evade
blocking a good part of the Sassanid line.
The elephants have been thrown back into their commander's cavalry.
The technical term for this is Ouch or Squish.
The Sassanid cavalry have a hard time against the legionnaires.
The Romans use the Betrayal card
and for once it works!
(The original roll of a 1 was rerolled as a 5 and the unit routed)
The elephants are again repulsed
while the rest of the Sassanid line starts to thin out.
In a final insult,
the Roman slingers are able to panic the elephants
who rampage back into the already seriously squashed Sassanid cavalry,
totally demolishing them, commander and all.
