July 10, 2017

In which Later Carthaginians (LCart) go searching for their first win, and get their ass handed to them by Numidians (Num). Set-up Home and away: LCart Ag4 rnd6=10, Num Ag1 rnd2=6. Num are defence.

[DBA3.0] Solo battle: Later Carthaginians II/32a v Iberians II39a

Another in the Punic-themed battles with sides I’ve recently built. This was an intriguing game of shifting flanks. The axis dice really played its part giving changes in tactics I would never try in a normal solo. This wargame includes some tweaks to the random terrain rules that the previous game suggested. Brief reminder of […]

With mutual consent “Angry” Anderson pitted II/80a Attila’s Huns (Huns) against “Fighting Mad” McGuire’s III/3 Italian Ostrogothic (IOs) on a wide board.

This classic match-up between II/56 Early Imperial Romans (EIR) and II/47e Early German Cherusci (EGe) was played out between “Ecdicius” McLaren and “Angry” Anderson. To cut a long story short Ecdicius squandered some of the best PIPs rolled to fall ignominiously 2-4 before Anderson’s EGes.
