|Nice and neat|
Facing off. Spot the elementary deployment mistake... for example, on my right, I thought that 24 Wb(O) plus a couple of Cv could deal with 5 Cv, 2 LH, 4 Sp(I), 3 Ax(S) & 3 Ps. Turns out I was wrong.
|Loads of warband - but no luck|
|Chariots (8 of them in all) plus Spanish Auxilia and Gallic Psiloi face off the light weight Syracusan left|
On my left, I had a column of cavalry chariots plus Auxilia and Psiloi versus a very light weight Syracusan right. I hoped to roll up the Syracusan right and get into their rear.
Except they rolled an average of <2 for that command for the entire game.. oops.
|The Spaniards face a heavier weight|
The Spanish held the centre, I actually anticipated that Ax(S) with Psiloi and Cavalry support would lose slowly to Spear. I was half right (about the losing), and half wrong (about slowly).. they got massacred.
I draw a veil over proceedings.
Oh well, things can only get better.... I learned a few lessons.
