Alexander vs. Classical Indians

Postby Rod » Mon Jun 19, 2017 5:47 pm

First official GT game is setup for tonight, to save time we will play with the armies already deployed.

Yes, I know they should be faced off across a river, but that seemed like a bit of a logistics problem for new players. So

A wad of hurt! Chariots and horse. Don't know if they're "Bad" or not. :)

Well the "wad" did a great job and nearly won the day. They charged forward and were eventually able to break Alexander's right flank. Alas, it was not soon enough.... The final score was 53 pts of dead Indians to 41 pts of dead Macedonians. Once the center started to collapse the Chariots could not chew through the broken flank fast enough to save the General. Porus finally fell along with most of his elephants. Left us out there with nothing but our Horde and some Bow Levy who decided to go home : :shock:
