After we fought out the Renaissance game (on my prior post) on the Saturday a wonderfiul dinner was had in nearby Bowral, proceeded by a few beers and followed by some homemade Limoncello at one of the local lads houses.
We then awoke bright eyed for Sunday and a grand refight of Zama. The Romans were John's and most of the Carthaginians were mine with a group of light foot Allies from Rex. I do not remember the order of events and so can't put too much story into the photos. It was however a great game - took most of the day - and ended with mutual destruction.
The game was again played with Impetus 2.
|The armies arrayed|
|The Numidians fought well among themselves |
|A steady Carthgo line about to smashed by the Romans|
|The elephants beginning their middle run|
|Not many Romans in site on the left wing|
But a picture doesn't always tell the full story. While there were almost no Roman foot left on the left wing, just out of shot at the left were a few remianing Numidians (on the Roman side) who had outnumbered the Carthaginian Numidians 2 to 1 and eventually won the tussle and were free to roam and shoot javelins at what Carthaginina foot I had left. You can however see the victorious elephants returning from their carnage through the Roman middle. But on the right flank it was another story with the Romans well in the ascendency.
A great day and weekend's gaming.
