At the local club, we are big fans of Hail Caesar but not necessarily big fans of getting fully painted armies on the gaming table. This makes for an exciting night when our two best, biggest and completely painted armies can match up for a game. Chris brings his Successors army to the table in four divisions: 2 heavy pike units holding the center with cavalry on one flank and light infantry securing the other end of the line. My Saladin era Arabs matched Chris with a rather similar layout: 2 heavy infantry divisions in the center with heavy cavalry on one flank and a mixed cavalry/infantry division on the other. Gaming table is provided by John from Plastic Legions.
420 points of troops deployed to the table.
Massed ranks of pike and cavalry.
Light troops clash on the flank.
Final clash in the center.
The game was oddly symmetrical with the flank divisions clashing, one division in the center refusing to engage and a final show down of heavies to decide the contest.
