A general named Sue*. Revolting Britons - part 2

After the repulse of their attack on the left, the Romans were soon at it again on their right.  Here we see cavalry surging forth while a Legion plods through the trees.  They obviously didn't get the memo about staying clear of barbarian-filled forests.
Actually the Legion did quite well and pushed back some hairy Brits.
An overview pf the centre and right (Roman) or left (Briton).
The Romans in the woods soon came unstuck.  Here they needed to roll anything other than two helmets to avoid the General being killed.  Whoops.
At this point the Brits had a clear lead.  And then came the card every Roman player hopes for 'Line Command'.  This enables a big clump of infantry (for example, a Roman Army...) to move.
It was an impressive sight to see!
Soon the opposing centres were heavily engaged...
...with the Brits getting the worst of the encounter.
The Romans continued to press forward and eventually clinched a narrow and hard won victory.

*Suetonius.  But it wanted saying.

Fair comment but watch it - your surname has Norman origins....

Maybe - but I don't think we've seen the last of those Brits yet!
