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.
Yesterday evening the Macedonian war machine triumphed again. I won't give a deployment map; it was all pretty straightforward. A main Macedonian right cavalry punch with central phalanxes en echelon and a refused left flank guard. The Persians took an all cavalry army with skirmish infantry support. There was a huge number of figures on the table, but the game was over very quickly. It probably took us longer to set up and pack away than it did to fight the battle. The Persians just kind of melted right across the front in the face of a relentless Macedonian advance. There were some awkward moments on the Macedonian right due to wave attacks, but once this stabilised the momentum resumed. The Macedonian left was in trouble by the end of the game from a huge swathe of Persian horse, but by then the Persian left and centre had collapsed and it was game over.
