We played 4 battles last night set in the 5th Century, when things went downhill for the Western Roman Empire. The Huns attacked twice, followed by a Frankish and then a Gothic army. Turns out old Aetius/Stilicho/whoever had quite a bit of fight in them. In our little alternate universe, the Western Empire looked a a good shot to still be kicking butt in the 6th Century.
