Our Club Meeting for Ancients this year was another success with ten gamers attending with armies the theme was the rise of Rome so any army from 150BC to 150AD, Nathan from Elite Miniatures attended with his stall and Ian from War and Peace also, much spare cash was spent on the two traders, some of the other members attended to view the games.
As I had predicted the Roman Armies were in the majority for the WAB 2 tournament. The armies on the table included; Three Imperial Roman, One republican Roman, one Thracian, one Carthaginian, one Celt, one Successor, one Pontic and one Spartacus revolt army. I tried to match period gamers with historic counterparts so the gaming would be balanced. In the first round each general selected a 300 point light infantry army for his vanguard. Dave Imp Romans lost to Greg Celts, Nathan Successors lost to Micks Imp Romans, Matts Pontic’s lost to Chris Spartacus revolt, Craig Imp Romans lost to Guys Thracians, Bern’s Carthaginians lost to Louis Republican Romans.
The second game was an 1800 point game with the loser of the vanguard game to setup first, results were Dave Imp Romans lost to Greg Celts, Nathan Successors lost to Micks Imp Romans, Matts Pontic’s lost to Chris Spartacus revolt, Guys Thracians lost to Craig Imp Romans, Bern’s Carthaginians lost to Louis Republican Romans.
A great day out was had by all, I was not happy with my dice rolling on the day and won only one combat for the day and rolled like a dog for all of my morale rolls resulting in a trouncing of my Pontics.........oh well I will just get some more mercenaries!!!!!
I have decided to run a campaign this year so keep a look out for updates
