Players weren't required to declare their armies at this meeting, but the other players are:
- Bob in Latium (Rome) pushing either a Gaul or a Roman army with a heavy Gaul allied contingent.
- Mike in Greece, who I expect to push a Greek or Syracuse army, with Earl as his 2iC
- Charlie in Levant who hasn't declared his army, but I suspect either Roman or Syracuse
- Rob in Egypt, probably Roman
Hannibal at the Gates. Ralph had set up a game of Romans vs. Seleucids. Bob, Mike and Earl as the Macedonians and Charlie, Rob and me as the Romans. Rob was our attacking force of two legions up the left flank, I held the middle with one legion and our extrordinarii and Bob was on the left with a legion and our ballista.
Charlie launched his scythed chariots at our lines right off, but Bob and I weathered the storm and sent the chariots to the rear (or Valhalla) with our counter attacks. On the right Rob was successful, but there wasn't much of substance opposed to him so his success was with little gains in terms of enemy core units killed. In the center the Seleucid phalanx stood up well. We called the game a draw at the end of the evening with several of us having an early morning drive for a Saturday game the next day. See my next update for info on that game.
