Ilipa again

On Tuesday we replayed the scenario for Ilipa, mainly because when we ran it the first time none of our local players was able to make it.
We played the game in the evening, when the light is so poor that photos don't come out.  However, I did take some shots of the initial setup on my home table.  First up (above) is a long shot of the whole battle, Romans on the left.
Second is a slightly angled shot of the Roman army.
The third and final photo shows the forces fighting for Carthage.  It was an all-out Roman victory this time, with Carthage being comprehensively crushed.


  1. Is the base material some kind of cork tile Caliban? Apologies if you have already explained this on a previous post, I did not find it on the ones I looked at and I am catching up! They provide a great effect.

  2. Hi James, it's good to hear from you. It is indeed cork tile, with a sort of green effect through it. If it's on the table for a while it can curl up a little, but it does the job. It's also portable, although part of me is wondering if I might glue them down and then fill in the edges with stuff...
