Iberian contingent was short of two Caetratii, so I took a bit of time to finish them off. Techically I only needed two for Basic Impetus Iberian army, but but three would enable me to build half sized (half minimums and maximums on the army list) Sertorian Lucitanian army. As daggerandbrush pointed out in previously, I might find Sertorians interesting alternative to pid against Roman might.Interestingly, Sertorius had, besides of local allies, also some Roman legionnaires available. Therefore he is able to field a few legions as FP (M:8, VBU:6, I:2, D:B, VD:3 [pilum]). Incidentally, I had some spare legionaries left and I thought that Iberians could certainly have use for the option. Hence, Sertorian army now has one Legion to function as an anvil.
Quintus Sertorius is interesting Roman general and politician, of who’s life Plutarch goes in some details in volume 8 of his ‘Lives’ (unfortunately I have not come across with that particular volume yet, but have added it to my todo list). In very brief history, he was born at 126BC in Nursia, Sabine territory and spent most famous part of his career fighting for independent Hispania to be formed in Roman model. Sertorious was some degree of oratory talent and he managed to gain a lot of local support and everything looked very good [not sure how much white fawn had to do with it, but it did not help at the end]. Sertorius fought very successful battles against Pompey but war was not going on his way and he was assassinated by Marcus Perpenna Vento in 72BC. Elimination of opposition by assassination was something that Pompey could have adopted from Sulla, albeit that part of history has never really proven so we do not burden him with the expiration of Sertorious. What is certain, Pompey then finished Perpenna and rest of the Iberian job with Metellus.
Pompey then ventured off to Italy to prove how good he was at making friends and finished off some staggering slaves and claimed to have concluded the slave rebellion led by Spartacus, under the very nose of Grassus. Metellus spent rest of his career opposing Pompey and his associates. Grassus being pissed by Pompey then ventured off to Parthia to have his head served on a plate to Orodes at 53BC. Pompey met his end at pier in Egypt 48BC but before that he did participate quest to put Seluicids out of business.
Unfortunately very little details are saved from the history concerning the armies that Sertorious commanded successfully against Rome, and therefore the army below is just as good guess as any other.
Albeit Iberian natives lack heavy infantry (FP), Sertorians actually have that option. They do rely very much on the cheap but pretty good light cavalry and caetratii (Lucitanians did not use the long shield of Scutarii, but only the small round one, therefore it is somewhat incorrect to have the Scutarii present heavier version of Lucitanians, but it is more distinct in the battlefield). The Legions serving Sertorious would only act as anvil that can take Roman heavy hitters face on. Naturally, like for Iberians, terrain plays a major part, and it is doubtful that Sertorian Lucitanians would win battle in open field.
Above would total in 200 points, a size of Basic Impetus army, but for full rules. According to Sertorian beta list Caetratii are quite bit more expensive, so I could afford 3rd one but not more. In any case, combination looks perhaps somewhat on the weaker side. Will see when testing it out against Romans.
