Description Edit | History

Alea iacta est... 49 B.C. Rome is in turmoil. Armed mobs rule the streets. The First Triumvirate - overseers of the last days of the Roman Republic - has disintegrated. The Senate and the People have two options: on the one hand is the overweening ego, ambition, but limited military vision of Gnaeus Pompeius Magno - Pompey the Great. On the other hand is one of history's greatest - and most schemingly ambitious - political/military figures, the conqueror of Gaul, Caius Julius Caesar. In Italy, at the edge of the Rubicon River, word of the stalemate has reached Caesar and his XIII Legion. He intones, for posterity: Ialea acta est... the die is cast.

Great Battles of Julius Caesar recreates 5 battles, using the GMT Great Battles of History (GBoH) basic system:

  • Pharsalus (Tessaly), 48 B.C.
  • Dyrrhachium-Lesnika (Illyria), 48 B.C.
  • Thapsus (Africa), 46 B.C.
  • Ruspina (Africa), 46 B.C.
  • Munda (Spain), 45 B.C.

4 Scenarios for GBoH Caesar the Civil War
Historical Scenarios for GBoH Caesar the Civil Wars
English

5 Battle of Thapsus - historical Scenario
This is a more historical scenario than shown in Great Battles Of Julius Caesar: Civil Wars Playbook. Caesar has some legions with only few cohorts presents, and Scipio has some missing forces, like an elite I legion or 1500 celtic horsemen, who escaped to Africa after Pharsalus disaster. Battle is smaller than Pharsalus scenario but bigger than original GBoH Thpasus sceanrio. Caesar has 80 cohorts with 3000 cavalry to Scipio 96 Cohorts, five thousands cavalry and 60 elephants with some light infantry. To recreate this battle author used from hereafter books and ancient sources: Stephen Dando-Collins: Legions of Rome: The Definitive History of Every Imperial Roman Legion, Caesar's Legion: The Epic Saga of Julius Caesar's Elite Tenth Legion and the Armies of Rome (Roman Legions)...
