Imperial Alexander vs. Ceasar Romans

Tonight at game night I played Dave in a 500 point Impetus battle between my Imperial Alexander army and his Ceasar Romans. It was a very enjoyable game, thank you Dave. Early on it looked like my army was going to get crushed (Elephant 9 dice-> 1 hit = LAME!). Once the units of pike got stuck in, I was able to slowly grind down the Legionnaires. In the end, I squeaked out a draw. It's an interesting matchup of Legion vs Phalangites. The Legionnaires have a high VBU vs. the Phalangites staying power due to their depth. I look forward to future games.

But like a dope, I forgot my camera at home so there's no pics except for the ones taken by Bob (see Bob's Miniature Wargaming Blog).

Using Foundry's 20% off deal, I purchased a bunch of minis that will allow me to construct a baggage train base for my army. Hopefully they should be here in a few weeks.

Still on my table is 3 units of Thureophoroi and a couple of Full Thrust units.


  1. Ah yes, the baggage train. Next time we'll bring our suitcases.

    Look forward to a rematch. Must remember to be wary of pike blocks, not only for my Romans but for the damage they have done to my knuckles!

  2. Looking forward to seeing the photos on Bob's blog. Sounds like a fun game.
