Early Successors - Eumenes versus Antigonus One-Eyed

On Sunday Garry and I played our last game of the year at the Vikings Club. It was an Early Successor Hail Caesar game with two divisions and five hundred points a side. Garry was Eumenes while I was old Antigonus One-Eyed, fighting with fairly similar armies but Garry had the advantage in cavalry while I had more pike. After a cautious start the cavalry on both flanks charged and Antigonus' elephants charged Eumenes' elephant guard. The fight on the right flank proved decisive  and eventually Eumenes' division here broke after some unlucky dice rolling. Thanks to Garry for a fun game.
