Step 1 - determine first player
Each player rolls 7 die and the highest number of Leader symbols goes first in every subsequent step.
Step 2 - place terrain
Each player has a scenario specified set of terrain tiles (5 Hill and 1 Rough terrain tiles)
1st player places 1 terrain tile on any clear hex within 5 hexes of his baseline. 2nd player then places 1 terrain tile on any clear hex within 5 hexes of his baseline. Tiles are placed alternately until all terrain is placed.
Step 3 - place standard units
Each player has a scenario specified set of units and leaders. ( 2 LI, 3 AUX, 3 MI, 2 HI, 2 MC, 2 LC and 2 LDR)
1st player places 1 unit or leader on any hex within 3 hexes of his baseline. 2nd player then places 1 unit or leader on any hex within 3 hexes of his baseline.
Units and leaders are placed alternately until all given units are placed
Step 4 - place optional forces
Each player has a scenario defined set of options to choose. 1 HC or 1 HWM
1 AUX or 1 LS
1 LDR or 1 Command Card 1 LDR or 1 Command Card (extra choice) 1 WAR or 1 MI 1 LC or 1 LS
Each player starting with the first alternately chooses which option they select and place the unit on map within 3 hexes of their baseline. Command cards are drawn into their hand (and can be viewed).
Step 5 - draw Command Cards
Each player draws 4 Command Cards which add to any Command Cards already drawn. Players that selected an extra Command card have an increased Command. (e.g if they drew 1 Command card in Step 4, their Command is 5)
This was a fight in the center, with both flanks playing almost no role. Greg's Romans came hard up the middle and caused some casualties, but were then cut down and the battle was tied 4-4. Stormwalker's Romans then pushed back up the middle and the Gods smile on Greg when an attacke came up short and Stormwalker's leader was cut down on a 2d check. The momentum shifted back to Greg at this point and the win was secured. A very close battle, could have gone either way, as it usually the case with heavy infantry clashing hard.
