|"Are you sure Hoplites can't drift or charge left?"|
A great fun game last night with Guido (This ain't living...) at the NWS.
Peter very much enjoys set scenario games rather than the simple points battles on a Wednesday night so he dug out his old file of Command and Colours and decided to convert a famous engagement between the Carthaginians and the Syracusans.
|The original map from the Command and Colours scenario book - Guido loves them!|
|My Greek auxiliary style and other suitable troop types are all off their old Warhammer Ancients bases awaiting a new|
life with To The Strongest so my Persians had to do.
|However Guido's Carthaginians were spot on - beautiful figures.|
|My Hoplites start to advance|
|Wrong chariot for the Carthaginian's,,,you guessed it ...mine...however it did the trick|
|Guido's beautifully painted Hill Tribes Italians from Aventine|
Im sorry I haven't any more photographs as the game was an absolute nail biter.
In the end the Carthaginians re-wrote history and the Syracusans went home in disgrace however with a smile on their face's.
Agreat fun game with a sensational rule set.
