The Old Guard Wargames Group was invited to put on a game at the recent Battleground show, and, being only a small group, all we had to offer at the time was the 28mm Ancients of John and Pete - both of whom collect armies for the late Republican Roman period (can you tell I don't know what they collect?).
So, with a few weeks to the show, both John and Pete organised their collections into shape, writing out an scenario and lists for an 'official' Roman army to give battle to a 'rebellious' Hispanic Roman army - or something like that. I'm afraid I can't remember the details.
Now my camera died before I could take any pictures, so I've had to 'borrow' images from various people / the Pendraken Miniatures forum - If you see an image belonging to yourself and you wish it removed, then please get in touch and I will happily do so. Thank you.
The rules used were Simon Miller's 'To the Strongest!' and they gave a very close-run game. Pete's Hispanic's took a very early lead in the victory stakes, only for John's 'official' Romans to peg them back after a series of brutal melee rounds. But in the end, when John could have just won it, Pete's Hispanic's delivered the killer blow and swept the 'official' Romans from the field.
Me, the stripey topped ginger one, sitting next to the stood John. Pete being partly hidden by the sign
(I promise I haven't cropped their faces from the shot, so I can claim ownership of the game!)
