I have been gaming since school, moving from historical figures gaming through role playing and back again. I decided to Blog after being persuaded by some friends that it's time I joined the digital age properly. The plan is to showcase various goings-on in my gaming life and keep it updated as much as I possibly can, barring work and real life.
Just added a precursor to the better known Battle of Zama to the Ancients Scenario page. Bagradas is another one that will let me use the Republican Romans. It provides an interesting counterpoint to Zama, with slightly different troop types on the Carthaginian side. In this earlier battle, it is the Roman cavalry that are in trouble. Also, and unlike Scipio, Regulus had no plan for dealing with the elephants apart from relying on the staying power of the legions. Scipio learned from this.
