Scenario - Dara
Posted: Tue Apr 23, 2019 4:39 am
I picked up Age of Belisarius since it is on sale during Easter. I had a quick look at a couple of the scenarios including Dara which has a "deep ditch" that some Byzantine units start behind. It can't be that deep because I was able to move both infantry and cavalry through it without any penalty such as being disordered. I checked the manual and it indicates that stationary foot get a defensive benefit behind an irrigation ditch but lose it if they move. I would be interested in hearing comments who have played this scenario and the impact of the ditch. Thanks.
