I don't know how you can look toward Attila as some kind of wonderful leader. He was brutal warrior who united a bunch of tribes so that he could invade rich western cities,... and those tribes immediately split apart again after he died. His sons couldn't even hold it together, they fought each other. He was a greedy barbarian who cared more about gold than creating a lasting empire and infrastructure for his people.
And frankly, your depiction of him standing aside while his men "enjoy the fruits of victory," and then he gets sloppy seconds, is offensive at best.
