|Eumenes battles Ptolemy upon the desert ruins of Egypt|
Something slightly different for this post - an old Successors "Clash of Empires" campaign played over two days at the club some time ago. Probably more "with pyjamas through a cloud of arrows and the occasional pointy sarissa up the backside" than grapeshot!
The games were based on the magnificent Successor lists by Jeff Jonas and the games he played with his group of gaming companions in the States sometime ago. Jeff was as always a gentlemen with suggestions, advice and tips on how to run the campaign well. It was a fantastic tournament for the eight players who participated.
