It has been pretty quiet on the gaming front lately and apart from a quick, fun game of Travel Battle, I haven't played anything for months. On Sunday afternoon Craig and I had a 150 point, two corps game of L'Art de la Guerre (ADLG) with Greeks versus Early Persians. This was a cracking game where the advantage swung back and forth each turn. The Persian left flank was severely mauled by the Greeks while the Greek left flank suffered equally at the hands of the Persians. In the end a Greek Commander was killed and both armies became demoralised in the same turn, resulting in a bloody hard fought draw. Thanks to Craig for a fun game.

  1. Beautiful armies, love the Sparabara...and a bloody game!

  2. Sharply painted troops especially the Persians. Good looking movement trays too!

    1. Thanks Jonathan, a draw is like a win with the Persians!

  3. What a fine looking game Cyrus!


    1. Thanks Christopher, we have a Syracusan vs Early Carthaginians game tomorrow night.

  4. Wow - all of the figures are lovely - and nicely based on movement trays too.
