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

Late Roman Cavalry and Infantry

More of the Late Romans I have been painting lately.

First a unit of Cataphracts by Musketeer Miniatures:

Next a unit of Light Cavalry - Equites Mauri Feroces (Ferocious Moors). Again, Musketeer Miniatures

Last but not least, some Artizan designs Arthurians painted to represent the Petulantes Seniores:

All these will be going up for sale on eBay later today

They are a good size match, Artizan and Musketeer. I also have some Musketeer and Blacktree infantry I will be working on next.
