I finally managed to put some time aside so that I could sort the photos I took of the Plataea game last Saturday at Carronade. Army deployments:
On my flank, the Spartans have despatched my second cavalry unit with clinical efficiency. The Persian arrow storm begins.
At this point we had to call time. Units were beginning to rout on both sides, and the Persians were ahead by about six units to four as both sides took losses in the centre. So we called it a winning draw for the invaders, a far better showing than they managed on the day. A combination of factors helped with this: keeping Mardonius out of harm's way; good morale dice by Simon at the centre right and right of our army; and the destruction of the Athenian archers that permitted the Thessalians to even things out against the Athenians. For Claymore in August I'll make the tiles bigger to stop them shifting around, and we will try to take advantage of the capacity to set up in advance the night before the show itself. Looking forward to a re-run...
