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.
