Last Sunday Garry, Craig and I met down at Vikings Club in Lanyon for the Capital Region Wargames Group's monthly meeting. We played a 200 point ADLG game with Antigonid Successors versus Hellenistic Greeks. Garry commanded the Greeks and had chosen a phalangite heavy army with 11 pike units compared to 5 Antigonid pike units! I'd made a bad choice in my army selection with more thureophoroi and romphaia armed Thracians on a narrow table.
We tried to refuse the centre and attack on the flanks but this only delayed the inevitable slaughter and the game was all over by lunch time. Three out of six commanders (two Antigonid) were killed but I did get to give my new Victrix Successor heavy cavalry a run and they performed creditably enough. Newly painted troops are always a dicey proposition, in games in my experience!
