Eventually, I was able to trap some of the Sarmatian light horse with my own light horse and auxilia, taking out pretty much everything my opponent left to delay on that side of the battlefield.

The Dominate Roman Swarm is quite a nasty army, I would have to agree, even if it takes a lot of practice to learn how to use correctly. In the hands of a player more skilled than myself, I'm sure it would be fearful to face. And it is fun to play. Now that I'm getting more familiar with it, I've been digging through my pile of 28mm figures to see if I can put together the same army at the larger scale. With the relatively smaller tables used for 28mm games, the Dom Roms would probably be even tougher.

For the next post, I'm going to try and write something about the Impetus test game I played next, but after stepping through the game and subsequently rereading the rules, we obviously got so many particulars wrong, I'm not sure it was a fair test game. At best, I can give a basic overview of how I thought the rules played.
