The Battle of Ctesiphon: 3rd December 2016; To the Strongest   1 comment

Mike, Michael and Phil refought our what if version of the famous Battle.  It is 363 AD and Julian and the Romans have crossed the Tigris and are attacking the forces arrayed before Ctesiphon.  However in our version the Persians have support from the advance cavalry guard of the Royal Army.

 

 

As night falls the position perhaps is looking a little better for the Romans after rescuing the situation on the right flank.  However the elephants remain undaunted and the VP total of 12 vs 8 counts against them.  So a narrow victory is awarded to the Persians.  They have stalled the Roman advance and will retire now to the City Walls.  For Julian with the Persian Royal army rapidly advancing and no siege equipment of his own to match the high walls he will now have to retire away from the City  in search of his Armenian re-enforcements.
