Another game of Hail Caesar

3 games in as many months! Unheard of at Chez Lee. This time a Roman Civil War, 4th century. 

On my right flank, a skirmish between light troops



On my left flank, an all cavalry clash





And in the centre, the Heavy infantry advance toward each other






In the centre, nicks Romans launch themselves at my Artillery. Needless to say, the artillery didn't survive




My heavy cavalry destroy their opponents on the left (well what do you expect Nick when you charge Cataphracts with Medium Cavalry?)



Nick keeping up a brave face, despite losing his cavalry division and allowing my cavalry to envelope his right flank.

So I think I had the benefit of some lucky dice rolls, and the game was mine. We are certainly getting the hang of the rules now, they are ideal for a nice friendly game lasting about 3 1/2 hours with about 400points per side on an 8x4 table. 

Most of the figures are Foundry 28mm

Some lovely troops arrayed in this game, shame you are not playing War and Conquest.
