Mitanni (I/19)

November 24, 2012


This army is designed to morph with Amorites and Old Babylonians, and its Psiloi are pretty generic too. The Mitanni strength is in its Light Chariots: it has 6 including the General element. Foot were [most likely] drawn from a number of subject people that inhabited the area once conquered by Amorites. These people also […]

Assyrians v Bedouin (2)

May 2, 2011


In the reverse match of game one, Assyrians got to defend their own arable ground. At last, a chance for the mighty HCh to sweep the impudent raiders away! Or not, as it turned out. The Assyrian position was a road smack down the middle, a steep hill on the right half-way to the enemy, […]

Assyrians v Bedouin (1)

May 1, 2011


After the long-sufferng Early Hebrews were rubbed out by my Early Bedouin (c) in the previous two games, I really wanted to try them against tougher opposition. What better than the Neo-Assyrian Later Sargonids? Here’s a summary of the first battle: My Bedouin defending, I stuck with the exact same board as last time. My […]

Early Bedouin(c) v Early Hebrews: Reverse Match 2

March 30, 2011


Game 2 In this the second of the reverse match games, my Early Bedouin (c) played defender against the Hebrew invaders. I laid the bad ground out fairly evenly around the centre of the board but with broad gaps between opposite bad goings so the wily Hebrews could not scoot between each in a single move. A dune […]

Early Bedouin(c) v Early Hebrews: Reverse Match 1

March 28, 2011


My last completed project – which seems a long time ago now – was the (c) version for early Bedouin. I proposed a set-piece where they would have two games against the Early Hebrews, one defending one attacking. The only difference to rulebook is that the aggressor is known beforehand for each game. Game 1: […]

Scythians v Attila’s Huns

July 7, 2010


The first wargame scheduled since I finished the Scythians had to give them a run, and I really wanted LH v LH, on a large-board format. So “Angry” Anderson kindly agreed to play the Huns. He did however choose the Attila option.   Terrain and Deployment Ecdicius wins the defender roll and sets up absolutely […]

Wheels Across the Sands III

April 29, 2010


After much delay I have finally found time to write up this, the third of the “Same board, lots of chariots” themed trio of games. This game took place between Ecdicius (that is, myself) commanding the Hittite Empire (a) option, and Fighting Mad McGuire, commanding the Hyksos (b) option. So normally one would expect a […]
