We gathered early on a Sunday morning in my loft, (always a hard ask for me after too many reds the previous night), and arrayed the armies of mighty Rome and her Pergamene Allies which faced off against the vast hordes of the Seleucid empire.8 elephants!!!! (Thanks to Chris Richard-Scully for the following photographs)

We had four generals and roughly 11,000 to 12,000 points per side. After setup, morning coffees, and friendly banter and greetings the game started at about 9.30 - 10.00. We concluded at 7.00pm.
Many thanks to the lads for playing and supplying figures, (Chris, Cookie, Steve, Dave, Paul, Claude and Martin) with special mention to Paul who organised the army lists and the game itself) I only managed to supply 3 small roman units, but one did survive the battle!!! 

I'll post the outcome in the near future 


  1. Looks like a good game. Who won?

  2. Great looking battle - I look forward to hearing who won.

    A 33% survival rate isn't bad for the first time on the table. The first outing for my units usually results in a total loss as I have know idea what I'm doing.

    Nice playing space!

  3. Yes, I got to take the photos but missed out on the game. Damn! Oh well... maybe I'll get to try my Allied Legion in the next game.

  4. wow thats a real WAB game !!!
    How many miniatures and painting hours that might be...

  5. Beccas...The Romans...just
    Miles...33% wasnt that good, I thought it went..2 out of 3 aint bad!! lol
    Sculls....thanks again for the photos.
    Der Tsstler....cheers, dont know the numbers, but we had a great day.
