Placentia 207BC (second attempt)
Paul's Africans are in the foreground and Brian's Gauls and Spanish are in the background.
At last!!-the Africans have arrived-and what an arrival-I was hard-pushed to keep them out for the first round of melee,but the Elephants had been allowed to pull the defences down,if they could make contact-and of course they did!!! Would this open the flood gates????
YES!!! they did-being attacked on all sides now,and the earthworks breached,I was doomed!!
The end is nigh!-even with me putting in my last reserves and weakened troops,I stood no chance against the fierce onslaught of the combined might of Paul and Brian!!
Last shot,showing a relieved Brian,and the sorry state of my "army"-well done lads,another fantastic game.
Brian brought along his latest painting job,and purchases(from Crusader Miniatures)
Two shots of, one of three,Universal Carriers that Brian has-a fantastic paint job-really impressive.
This shows the 24 figures that were in the pack-very fine detail,wonderful little models.
Roll on Thursday-possibly a Marlburian game.
