Here are a few photos of a Carthaginians versus Republican Romans game, we played earlier in the month, which I haven't had time to post before. Thanks to Craig, Gary and Bern for the game which was close but found the Romans rather brittle with their small units compared to the Carthaginian standard sized units.

We've been away bushwalking and camping in the Flinders Ranges of South Australia for the last two weeks so I thought I'd include a few holiday snaps. A very big thank you to the unknown, kind and generous person/s who returned my lost camera to the Visitors Centre at Wilpena Pound!

    1. Thanks Tom, it's a classic encounter that provides plenty of interest - the Carthaginians seem to have the edge in our games so far.
