Battle of Telemon, 275 BCE - Romans trapping Gauls? Can you change the outcome of this key battle in Rome’s history? Two Roman armies trapped the Gaulish army between them as the Gauls tried to escape north of Rome with their loot and prisoners. Romans to the north, Romans to the south, what were the Gauls to do? Using DBA 3.0 rules and armies, you can try to change history with your leadership! At each battle board, there will be two Roman armies and two Gaulish armies, with the Gauls in between the Romans. One battle board will use 15mm figures, the other two battle boards/ games will be using 2mm figures! What if the Gauls had waited for Hannibal’s Carthaginians? Well, in the second round you can try this version by substituting one Carthaginian army for one Gaulish army! Yes, the Carthaginians get at least one elephant! All armies and terrain will be provided for use in this event. Bring an open mind and a desire for fun! If you don’t know the DBA rules, we’ll help you try them out: newbie against newbie, experienced players against each other. The Battle of Telemon is this year’s approved miniatures battle for the Society of Ancients(SOA), based in Britain. The layout of the armies and terrain will closely follow that suggested in the SOA’s journal, “Slingshot”. Hosted by Don Ray and the Calgary Camp Followers.
