The 'Immortals" first game

Images of the big Ancients game we played today. Figures from the Collections of Brian Phillips and myself . We used the "To the Strongest ' rules by Simon Miller. Polybian Roman Vs Imperial Selucid/Successors. There were 5 gamers playing (Andy, Brian, Nichol, Peter and I). Table was a 12 by 6 and there was probably about 1.5k figures in total. The game finished as a draw with the Romans taking the centre but Successors winning the flanks. I think if there was another turn it would have been a Roman defeat.
Massive Polybian army. With Roman, Italian cavalry and Numidian Elephants on the flanks.

The Successors. With heavy and light cavalry and Elephants on the flanks.

The epic struggle in the centre.

My Allied Italian allies first game.

 A brilliant day and after years of collecting the figures Brian and I were delighted to see it all arrayed on the table. 

My thanks to Nichol Murray for organising such a great day.

Pike block

The Burgundian pike block based. The figures were painted by Darren Linington and myself. 48 figures on 6 bases. 

Never happy

I wasn't completely happy with the original standards on this unit, so here they are with new ones. I think they look more Burgundian(ish) now.

Missile troops.

These units, like the Artillery, are on three bases that link together.This Simon Miller's clever basing system.

 I have used the the FKaP6 bases for the Archers and FK&P13b base for the shot.
Available from the "Big Red Bat' shop.
