2nd Battle of
Gauls retook Cisalpina from the Romans with minimal losses. One of the
Gallic generals was promoted for exemplary conduct. Much sacrifices
were made to Chessex the God of Dice.

Asterix, consisted of half the Warbands and all of the Cavalry.

Spanish Scutarii holding the centre, skirmishers holding the woods, and the
Warbands forming the hammer head.

calculations, and consulting the Gods, the Gauls realised that if they
just hung around until nightfall, the Romans would be forced to retreat.
