Late Roman v Irish
The mist cleared slowly to reveal the two armies in the valley, the Irish warlord looked long and hard at the Romans standing on the hill in there shieldwall he could see the famous knights of the Roman Dux. He gave a grim smile and the war horns told his warrior's it was time for battle. Irish war cries filled the valley, and the Romans locked their shields a little tighter.
