BARBARIANS vs IMPERIAL LEGION
Battle played in the week from 15 to 22 April 2019
Headquarters of the Naran Team Turin
We played with armies of 4000 points and 1500 ars arcana points each.
It was a clash between pachyderms: the Barbarians deployed the Giant Mammouth and the Giant Rhino. The Legionaries deployed the Giant Elephant, an Elephant of the Wendhya and a Unit of three Elephants from the Swartran forests. The Barbarians also deployed a Half Giant, while the Legionaries deployed a Unit of nine Great Minotaurs. The Barbarians deployed a Cimmerian Exterminator on a tiger and a Destroyer. In the Roman army the Emperor was present (Beloved Personage: see Rulebook - Talismans), with under his orders a Pretorian Horse Unit commanded by a First Pilum on horseback.

Result of the clash in terms of points:
The battle ended with a "Victory" of the Barbarians:
The Barbarians suffered 3181 points of losses(Sandro).
The Legionaries have suffered 3811 points of losses (Sergio) , with the difference of + 630 points, constituted essentially by the fact that the Giant Mammouth of the Barbarians, whose cost is 562 points, has managed to survive until the end of the fight, although it suffered hits 4 Wounds. In the final phase of the battle it was attacked by the First Pilum, who succeeded in inflicting wounds on it, which however were saved by the Invocations to the Gods of the Barbarian Priests.
The clash between the elephant of the Wendhya and the Giant Rhino ended in a draw, as both creatures have eliminated each other. The Berserkers supported by their General and the Destroyer have succeeded in eliminating the Praetorians on horseback, but also suffering many losses. The same thing in the clash between the Lancieri Catafratti and the Cimmerians on smilodhon. The Half Giant has easily accounted for the Unit of three forest elephants.
Ultimately, it was a great massacre for both contenders.
Another epic battle of Naran Fantasy Wars!
