During the 4th century BC they expanded into northern Italy, contributing to the decline of the Etruscan empire. The rising Roman Republic after the end of the First Punic War increasingly put pressure on the Gallic sphere of influence; the Battle of Telamon of 225 BC heralded a gradual decline of Gallic power over the 2nd century, until the eventual conquest of Gaul in the Gallic Wars of the 50s BC. This list represents the armies of the highland tribes including the Helvetii, Arveni and Allobroges. It also represents the Ligures who may have been an IndoEuropean people rather than Celts.

7 Troop Notes Highland Gallic Gauls were equipped with short spears, javelins and swords. Mail appears to have been a Celtic invention around 300 BC but was restricted to the aristocracy. Sheilds were mainly oval, but hexagonal, rectangular and round examples existed. There were four troop types attested, chariots, cavalry, heavy infantry and light infantry. The chariots were drawn by two horses and carried a driver and a warrior. They were used against cavalry and restricted to skirmishing against infantry. Cavalry replaced chariots in Italy and Gaul but continued to be used in Britain. The light infantry were primarily javelinmen, but archers and slingers were available. Soldurii were the household troops of noble warriors. None. Version st January 2018

From 250 BC there must be at least as many cavalry as chariots. Soldurii must remain attached to a general to claim Fanatic. Gaesatii, if used, must be in their own internal allied command containing only Gaesatii. Historical Notes The Gauls were Celts that emerged around the 5th century BC. During the 4th century BC they expanded into northern Italy, contributing to the decline of the Etruscan empire. The rising Roman Republic after the end of the First Punic War increasingly put pressure on the Gallic sphere of influence; the Battle of Telamon of 225 BC heralded a gradual decline of Gallic power over the 2nd century, until the eventual conquest of Gaul in the Gallic Wars of the 50s BC. This list represents the armies of the lowland tribes. Troop Notes Gauls were equipped with short spears, javelins and swords. Mail appears to have been a Celtic invention around 300 BC but was restricted to the aristocracy. Sheilds were mainly oval, but hexagonal, rectangular and round examples existed. There were four troop types attested, chariots, cavalry, heavy infantry and light infantry. The chariots were drawn by two horses and carried a driver and a warrior. They were used against cavalry and restricted to skirmishing against infantry. Cavalry replaced chariots in Italy and Gaul but continued to be used in Britain. The light infantry were primarily javelinmen, but archers and slingers were available. Soldurii were the household troops of noble warriors. Gaesati were troops who were paid to fight the Romans. They may have been mercenaries or warriors of a specific tribe. They fought naked, a custom that most Gauls had abandoned by this time. Allowed one TuG of Superior cavalry. Version st January 2018

11 Historical Notes Early German The Germans were a group of tribes that originated in Demark and southern Scandinavia. By the 3rd century BC they had expanded southwards. The first contact with Rome was in 113 BC during the migration of the Cimbri. A combined force of Cimbri and Teutoni defeated Roman armies in 109 BC and 105 BC. They were defeated by Marius at the battle of Vercellae in 101 BC. Julius Caesar encountered more German tribes during his conquest of Gaul and it was at this time that the Rhine became the frontier of the Roman empire. During the Augustan period the Romans expanded towards the river Elbe. A revolt in 9 AD led by the supposed Roman ally Arminius led to the destruction of three Roman legions in the battle of Teutoberger Wald. This firmly established the frontier on the line of the rivers Rhine and Danube. Later in the century the Romans conquered the RhineDanube salient which they held until c. 260 AD. Troop Notes German refers to tribes that originated beyond the river Rhine. Many tribes were ethnically Celtic and they fought in a similar fashion to the Gauls. German cavalry seems to have been generally better regarded than Gallic cavalry. Warriors are recorded as accompanying the cavalry by hanging on to the horses manes. None. Version st January 2018

Julius Caesar invaded the British isles in 55 and 54 BC, but it was almost another hundred years before the Romans launched another invasion in 43 AD. The British were defeated in a series of battles and the south of Britain was rapidly conquered. Over succeeding decades the Romans moved north and west. In 61 AD the Iceni revolted led by Queen Boudicca. In 70 AD the Brigantes and Parisii were brought into the Empire. Wales was conquered by 78 AD. Version st January 2018

13 Troop Notes Ancient British The Ancient British were Celtic and fought in a similar style to the Gauls. They retained the chariot. Cavalry appears to have fought as skirmishers.

Historical Notes During the disturbances that followed the death of Nero, a Batavian Gaius Julius Civilis took up arms under pretence of siding with Vespasian and induced the inhabitants of his native country to rebel. The Batavians, had been exempted from tribute, but were obliged to supply a large number of men for the army. The Batavians were immediately joined by several neighbouring German tribes. Two legions under Mummius Lupercus were defeated at Castra Vetera and surrounded. Eight cohorts of Batavian veterans joined their countrymen. This led to a rising in Gaul. Vespasian was forced to send a strong force to quash the revolt. Civilis was defeated at Augusta Treverorum and Castra Vetera, and forced to withdraw to the island of the Batavians. An agreement was reached and the Batavians resumed amicable relations with Rome. Version st January 2018

They were defeated by the Romans under Gn. Julius Agricola in 84 AD. The Romans subsequently pulled back to the Antonine Wall and then Hadrian's Wall. The Caledonian tribes remained a threat and at least four major invasions were attempted. In 209 AD Septimus Severus defeated the Caledonians and inflicted widespread destruction. This contributed to the emergence of the Picts. Troop Notes The Caledonians appear to have fought in a similar fashion to the other Ancient British tribes. None. Caledonian Version st January 2018

If used, elements of protected and unprotected warriors must be easily distinguished. Historical Notes The Picts were a tribal confederation of peoples who lived in what is today eastern and northern Scotland. They are thought to have been a Caledonian tribe who emerged after the Caledonian tribes were defeated by Septimus Severus. During the 4th century AD they emerged as one of the threats to Roman Briton. Version st January 2018

19 Troop Notes Picts The Picts fought in a similar fashion to the Caledonians. Many warriors appear to have been lightly equipped. It is possible that Attacotti were recruited into the Roman army. They might have originated on the island of Ireland. Allowed protected and unprotected warriors to be mixed. Version st January 2018

21 Historical Notes Early Franks The Franks were a confederation of Germanic tribes that was originally composed of a mix of groups settled between the Rhine and the Weser Rivers. The two most prominent of these tribes were the Ripuarians and the Salians who led the others.the Franks appear in Latin sources for the first time in 257 AD, mentioned among the enemies of Rome in northern Gaul. They were a threat not only by land but also on the sea. Late in the 3rd century AD, some of the Franks joined the Saxons in the southern part of the North Sea and the English Channel, turning into raiders, preying on shipping lanes, and also raiding the coast of Britain and Gaul. Under the rule of Emperor Maximianus, the Romans signed a treaty with the Franks in 287AD; as part of the agreement, several Franks became enlisted in the Roman army. In 451AD, Attila the Hun invaded Gaul, and the Franks joined the Romans and the Visigoths to resist the invasion. Attila's conquest was halted in June at the Battle of the Catalaunian Plains, and he retreated from Gaul. The Franks continued to provide military support to Rome to fight against imperial enemies, including the Visigoths in 463 AD and the Saxons at Angiers in 469 AD. Troop Notes The Frankish warriors used the francisca throwing axe that gives them their name, and a heavy throwing spear called the angon. According to Ammianus they "enter eagerly into wars", are stronger and taller than Roman soldiers, of huge size,savage and uncontrollable and exhibit extreme resolution. He also describes the elite warriors as a fiery band of nobles among whom even the kings fought, fighting in frenzied rage and leaving themselves unguarded and striving to lavish their lives tor victory.

After the collapse of the Hunnic empire they appear to have occupied part of lower Austria, north of the Danube. Some Rugii were defeated by Odovacar s relic Roman mercenary army while invading Illyria in 487 AD. Others appear to have joined Theodoric's invasion of Italy in 489 AD.

Historical Notes In the late 3rd century AD, the Burgundians appear on the east bank of the Rhine, confronting Roman Gaul. Zosimus reports them being defeated by the emperor Probus in 278 AD in Gaul. At this time, they were led by a Vandal king. A few years later, Claudius Mamertinus mentions them along with the Alamanni, a Suebic people. These two peoples had moved into the Agri Decumates on the eastern side of the Rhine, an area today referred to still as Swabia, at times attacking Roman Gaul together and sometimes fighting each other. He also mentions that the Goths had previously defeated the Burgundians. In 370 AD, the Emperor Valentinian I enlisted the aid of the Burgundians in his war against the Alamanni. Approximately four decades later, the Burgundians appear again. Following Stilicho's withdrawal of troops to fight Alaric I the Visigoth, the northern tribes crossed the Rhine and entered the Empire in the Völkerwanderung, or Germanic migrations. Some Burgundians migrated westwards and settled as foederati in the Roman province of Germania Secunda along the Middle Rhine. Other Burgundians stayed in their previous homeland in OderVistula interfluvial and formed a contingent in Attila's Hunnic army. Troop Notes The Burgundi differed from the Franks and Suevi in using light javelins instead of francisca, angon or bebrae. Crushed by the Huns at Roman instigation in 436 AD, they were settled in eastern Gaul as foederati. Reclassified warriors. Skirmishing archers now optional. Version st January 2018
