Egypt vs Carthage - Punic War Campaign Game

Two Saturday's ago I got together with Rob and Ralph to fight a battle in our Punic War campaign. Rob, playing Egypt is using a Republican Roman army model and I'm using a Carthaginian army and playing Carthage.

I had a solid battle plan and used my hoplite battle line well to push the Romans to their baseline, but in the end Roman reinforcements spoiled this plan and I ended up with the loss. Well played to Rob. Usually our epic campaign battles feature lots of players, but Rob and I had to each push huge armies solo during this busy time in everyone's schedule. I had always theorized that games would go faster with only one player on each side, but this is definitely not the case.
