I've been looking at command & colors ancients scenarios , most of which can be modified , albeit abstractly for pocket battles.Here's one I came up with today from a 2nd expansion set scenario between Germanic tribes and Imperial Rome.It worked well , the Celts winning by just one casualty point.

ANGRIVARII RAMPART 16AD

CELTS - Celts are the defenders and have 6 order tokens.
Right Rear - 1 Noblemen
Right Front – 1 Horsemen , I Noble Cavalry , Champion , 1 Javelinmen , 2 Slingers
Right Engagement zone – 1 Javelinmen , 1 Warband.
Centre Front – 2 Warbands , 1 Javelinmen
Left Front – 1 Noblemen , Warchief , 2 Warbands , Javelinmen

ROMANS - Romans are the attackers and have 9 order tokens due to their superior command.
Left Rear – 2 Archers , 2 Auxiliaries , Centurion
Left Front – 1 Auxiliaries
Centre Front – 2 Legionaries , 1 Auxiliaries
Centre Rear – 1 Legionaries , 1 Praetorians , 1 Archers , 2 Cavalry , Imaginifer
Right Front – 2 Legionaries , 1 Archers
Right Rear – 1 Cavalry , 1 Praetorian , Aquilifer , 1 Onager

TERRAIN –
The engagement zone on the Celt right and the Roman left is heavily wooded , Roman charges do not gain the usual extra die roll.

The Celt centre front and left front are protected by fortifications.When a unit in one of these zones is charged by a Roman unit they may roll an extra die when striking back.If a Celt unit makes a charge they do not receive this bonus.At the end of any battle round , if any of these zones have no Celt units deployed within , the Romans gain 12 points for the centre front and 9 points for the left front.

The Celt left and Roman right zones – front , rear and engagement contain a river.There can only be a maximum of two troops in each unit because of deployment restrictions in these zones.

Nice.

I'd like to see more of these if you have the time. Perhaps collate them in a document and upload to the Files section?

I would love to see one (or more ) for the Roman invasion of Britain circa 43 A.D.

Imagine the battles with the Romans trying to cross the Thames, only to be met by Togodumnus and Caratacus; or, the Romans campaign against the Durotriges and Dumnonii tribes...attacking the hill forts like Maiden Castle (Mai Dun) or Pilsden, with the Legio Augusta II under Vespasian!

Covetous...
