DBM - De Bellis Multitudinis

Legnica 1241 AD – DBM scenaario

Liegnitz (Legnica), 9th April, 1241 AD

Climate: Cold
Season: Spring
Roll weather normally.

Attacker: Mongols

The Battlefield & Deployment

Both armies may deploy freely, except that no flank marches may be used. Ambushes may be used normally.

Legnica

The Armies

The latest estimations say that in Legnica both armies were approximately 8000 to 10 000 strong. This means that we can use the standard ratio of 250 infantry/element, 200 cavalry/element and 150 skirmishers/element.

The Mongol army was divided into four commands. The largest command was the reserve and was commanded by Ordu Khan. Two other commanders, Baidar and Kadan, probably also fought in Legnica.

DBM - De Bellis Multitudinis

Idistaviso 16 AD – DBM scenario

Climate: Cold
Season: Summer  –  Roll weather normally.

Attacker: Romans Defender: Germans

Battlefield & Deployment

The germans must deploy the C-in-C:s command in the middle, and the other two commands to either side of it. The entire German army, including the baggage, musty be deployed on the right side of the river. The Romans may be deployed normally, except that their camp must be deployed in the middle of their own table edge. Neither side may use flank marches, but ambushes may be used normally.

Romans

Idistaviso

Germans

Armies

I have used the ratio of 600 infantry, 400 cavalry or 300 skirmishers per element.

Germans

The Germans included three different tribes: Cherusci, Samnones and Langobardi. The C-in-C, Arminius, leads the Cherusci, the two other tribes are considered as allied (and can be unreliable, but as internal allies do not change sides). One estimation gives the Germans a number of 45 000 to 50 000.

Romans

Acording to Tacitius the Roman army was 8 legions with cavalry and auxiliary troops. It’s numbers have been estimated as follows:

  • 24 000 Legionaries
  • 20 000 Auxiliaries
  • 4 000 Cavalry
  • 800 Mounted archers
  • 5 000 Batavian and other German allies

The Romans also had a fortified camp. All the troops did not take part in the battle, because parts were left to garrison the camp. The army was divided into 3 parts:

  1. Gallian and German auxiliaries supported by foot archers
  2. Four legions with Germanicus’s bodyguard and picked cavalry
  3. The other four legions, light troops, mounted archers and other allies (the Batavians?)

The allied Batavians did not fight under their own general, so I have decided not to use the Batavian ally option given in the army list.

Notes: Even though the Roman army is 132 AP larger than the German, in number of ee and number of men it is still much smaller (35 000 vs. 47 000). In terms of APs the Romans have a huge advantage, but the terrain should help the Germans.
