Sassanid scenarios

Sassanid scenarios was created by Mark-McG
Looking at the C&C Medieval scenarios with the Sassanids from 530AD onwards, I realised that there are virtually no early Sassanid scenarios, including;

Reign of Gordian III (238-244)
Battle of Resaena (243) Battle of Misiche (244)

Valerian's disaster
Battle of Edessa and Capture of Emperor Valerian (260)

It seems to me these would be (by date) more the province of C&C Ancients, and would be an interesting pre-cursor to the upcoming C&C Medieval.
It also seems there is a dearth of military history material for these battles.

Does anyone have sources for these battles, and more to the point, designed any scenarios for these battles?

Hi Mark,

there are two pretty nice fan made scenarios (I hae already played first):
www.commandsandcolors.net/ancients/maps/...view=article&id=1040
www.commandsandcolors.net/ancients/maps/...view=article&id=1045

I have already converted both into Vassal maps (see attached).

Would be fun to play them again :)

I made a few adjustments to the VASSAL files, adding army name plates to both, and more importantly adding several missing leaders and replacing a Roman MC with HCC in scenario KP1 Rhesaina to match the map layout

Hi Mark is Edessa not in expansion 4?

As for sources decline and fall of the roman empire I think volume 3/4 3 is more fall of the west might cover the period of this game not sure how usefull that would be for creating C&C maps.
Id like to see the bits between ancients and this Julians campaigns and the wall of the west goths huns vandels and franks a 2nd barbarian expansion. I have installed vassel so maybe ill get round to it but Napoleonic's and Great War have taken most of my C&C time lately
