Romans in a bad mood. Loads of dead Celtiberians. That's all there is to say, really! Billy from Ayrshire and I played the doomed tribesmen, while Simon from Ayrshire and Gordon ran the rampant legions. A few photos:
Half of the tribal army was destroyed, which translates to 52% of the army's value. The Romans lost the Velites as usual plus some measly Hastati and Spanish Light Cavalry: 14% of the army's value. The Celtiberians retire to their hills, secure in the knowledge that the Romans aren't strong enough to follow them and invest Numantia. This means a stalemate in Hispania until one side or the other gains enough reinforcements to make a push.
We then rolled for the next campaign events. This Roman army recovers a bit (well, takes a holiday, really) which brings the first campaign season to an end. Summer 149 opens immediately with a Roman attack on the Macedonian army in Epirus. Originally I was going to run this one at the club in a couple of weeks' time, but my 50th is coming up, on the Ides of March, funnily enough, and I have some socialising to do, including hosting a large game here. I can't invite everyone I know, so I'll stick to about a dozen of my longest standing gaming mates and ancients players. A double-size helping of Republican Romans against Later Macedonians: the Fourth Macedonian War is well and truly under way.
Giants and What's Next - No pics this time. I worked a bit on the remaining giants. Frosty, the mini-giant, is almost done. As for the big Warploque giant... I doubt he's going to...
