Carthaginians versus Gauls

As I mentioned in my last post here are some photos of a Carthaginians versus Gauls, Hail Caesar game we had about a week ago. Garry commanded the Carthaginians while I had the Gauls, both armies were 340 points and two divisions. It was an interesting game, quite hard fought but neither of us were able to gain the upper hand for very long and in the end it finished in a draw with both sides unbroken. Thanks to Garry for a fun game.

    1. Thanks Phil, the cavalry on both flanks were unable to break through and the infantry in centre stalled as well.

  8. I'm so jeolous of your giant and beautiful tables, Cyrus! All of your hard work pays off. As a big fan of both Carthos and the Gauls, I'm quite happy to see a tie.
