Syracusan vs Early Carthaginians (15mmm big bases)

Post by Roundie » Sun Dec 27, 2020 1:55 am

Merry Christmas everyone

On the 30th Dec the lads are coming out to my place for our 1st big triumph gaming day (well 6 of us....so not that big really)

We are basing the day on the Rise of Rome lists and with that in mined I thought I'd try out a few list before hand.

The attached pictures are as the title suggests Syracusan vs Early Carthaginians.

In brief The Carthy Cavalry monstered the Greek Cavalry on the right but, was then checked by the Greek Arty.
In the middle both sides weren't keen to get stuck in until the near the end of the game.
On the left flank, Ligurians & rabble beat up the Oscan's winning the game for Carthage

I love the look of the 15mm Chariots on the 80mm bases!
