Last Wednesday night down at the Vikings Club, Garry and I played a 100 point L'Art de la Guerre (ADLG) game with his lovely Etruscans versus my Camillan Romans. Here are a few photos of our game. It was a quiet night at the club, the miserable wet, winter weather no doubt contributed to this, and only one other game, a Brother versus Brother, French Indian War game, was played.
It was Garry's first game of ADLG but the Romans were soon in trouble on both flanks with their cavalry units routed. The Etruscans with superior numbers were able to roll up the flanks. The Romans countered with Latin ally reserves and the Roman commander even managed to rally two units in one turn. However it was a familiar tale of too little, too late and once the Triarii routed, the Roman army became demoralised and it was curtains. Thanks to Garry for a fun game.
