As it happened,Brian's elephant had to take morale,didn't pass it,and ran "amok",trampling both his own troops and mine-war is hell!!
This shot shows the rampaging elephants breaking into my line,however I recovered,and with some lucky dice throws I managed to beat Brian's whole line.My right flank was just holding,and I had managed to disorder his very strong Phalanxes ( 0n his right,just outside the town) so we called it a night-after 12 moves!
and I was declared the winner-Hurrah!!
We both enjoyed the game,and really a draw,I think, would have been a fairer result.
I have been busy making a "paddle Steamer" and Roman Galley for future games-Brian will be using the steamer in our next campaign game-I made both vessels using a cosmetic box ,cardboard and skewers.
As you can see,I'm not a Model Maker,but the end result is quite satisfying(to me!!) and will fit the bill.
These two photo's show the finished Paddle Steamer-named "Venus" by Brian!! with some Naval figures,that I've had for centuries.
The above shots show the finished Roman/Greek/Carthaginian etc. etc. galley-I had to make it so long to accomodate two of our Ancient units,be it Cohorts,Warbands or Taxis-so no doubt it will appear in many games to come!!
Brian has been painting his Caesarian legion,and a damned fine job he's making of them too,and I am now onto my 9th Russian 7YW regiment,and am working up the courage to start the Russian Hussars I bought at Falkirk!!
Roll on Thursday!!
