On Sunday Garry, Gary, Josh and I played a four hundred point, two division a side game of Hail Caesar at the Vikings Club. It was a Syrian Wars scenario with the Seleucids led by Antiochus III (myself) fighting the Ptolemaic Successors of Ptolemy IV (Garry). Here are a few photos of the game I took while playing.

The Ptolemies quickly gained the upper hand on the right flank with Antiochus' division broken after several rounds of combat. However before they could advance to assist the other division, there was a sharp turn in the fortunes of the game with the Seleucids breaking two Ptolemaic phalanxes in quick succession. This meant both sides had a broken division each, so possibly a draw, but the Ptolemies were overall in a stronger position with more units in tact.
Thanks to Garry, Gary and Josh for another fun game.
