The Battle of Fano
About this creation
The Battle of Fano - also known as the Battle of Fanum Fortunae, was fought in the year 271 between an exhausted Roman force, and the heavily armoured Germanic tribe, The Juthungi.
This battle followed the Battle of Placentia earlier in 271.
At Placentia a Roman army that had been fighting Vandels further north, and led by Emperor Aurelian, was defeated.
This army was also the only Roman army in Northern Italy, and had to be rallied.
As the Juthungi marched towards a defenseless Rome, The emperor broight his deminished force back together and rapidly struck the fast moving army, After some evading the Romans, Aurelian forced a fight, and pinned The Germanic tribe at Metaurus River, just inland of Fano.
After a desperate struggle, the Roman Battle line managed to turn the Germanic charge, and force them into the River.
The Juthungi line fell, and were forced into retreat.
After this, the Romans caught the Juthungi again, this time on the retreat.
After rejecting the Juthungi's claims for safe passage out of their lands, the Romans slaughtered them in the battle of Pavia.

After this there was much celebration in Rome, with Wild stories being told, most of it propaganda, such as the fact the Germanic tribe had harnessed great beasts, partly to revive the Emperors reputation, but also to make just the earlier Roman defeats.
Hence the sue of Minotaur and Cyclops.

great scene hayden, the legionnaires look pretty good in lego, I find that it takes much smaller scenes to do a convincing battle scene with swords as opposed to fire arms, you have really nice figs for this epic battle! very cool! and hny!

Quoting Ian Spacek Neato! I particularly like how you included the painted people/Britons. I'm currently reading an awesome book entitled "Eagle of the Ninth" and I highly recommend it, if you haven't read it before. It's about Rome, Briton, and a lost legion. :) Cheers!
I have actually read that book, its very good, and I've seen the film too! I really wanted to show the romans had a larger army than pure legionaries. Thanks for your comment!
