On the big table - Zulus v Brits (Battles for Empire v2) - a re-run of a scenario I played at a Saturday meeting.
DBM - Patrician Roman v Later Carthaginian - the middle was pretty much a stand off. On our right I fought against Cv, Lh & El - we finished with my command 3 off breaking and Chris 2. On our left flank Andy had 2 allied commands - Visigoths and Arabs. Al had a few Lh plus loads of Auxilia to oppose this attack. As we pulled stumps the game was a draw. No doubt the steep hills that ended up on the Carthaginian side cramped their deployment - typical WRG terrain system!
Wednesday 26th October 2016 - searching in the loft.
Whilst putting back the desk fan and electric fly killer for the winter I came across two 'project' boxes. They were 15mm Roman and Carthaginian armies. Trouble is that little is actually painted. The contents are mixed and largely un-labelled. Here's a breakdown of the 'Romans' box:
Scan 1: A B C
14 (x 4) Legionaries (old Minifigs - Marian Roman) - 8 elements painted as 'Imitation legionaries'
11 (x 4) Legionaries (old Minifigs) - Early Imperial Romans - 3 painted elements
1 (x 4) Late Roman legionaries (Tin Soldier) - painted
2 (x 4) - (A) lorica, plumed helmet, sword, square sh
4 (x 4) - (B) lorica, crested helmet, oval shield, spear - later legionaries?
4 ( x 4) - (C) mail, oval sh, spear - auxilia of some sort?
2 (x 3) Cavalry alares (old Minifigs) - painted
2 (x 3) 'Gothic' cavalry (old Minifigs)
4 (x 2) Numidiam javelinmen (old Minifigs - for Later Carthaginian army).
A few figures in their original packets:
4 - IMP5 Equites alares (Navigator)
4 - IMP 10 Equites alares (Navigator)
8 - 150601-0032 Kappadokians (Chariot?)
1 - 150222-0040 Cheiroballistra in mule cart (Chariot?)
8 - 150039 Western archers 2
8 - 15016-0038 Western archers 1
3 - 150403-0053 Numidian command group
8 - 150037 EIR Eastern archers 2
8 - 150214-0036 EIR Eastern archers 1
9 - SPQR22 Legionary Lanciarii 4thC
I haven't got around to the unlabelled bags whose contents will have to be mostly guesswork (plus some book research). Maybe next time!
