Last Sunday Garry, Bern and I met at the Vikings Club for the monthly meeting of the Capital Region Wargames Club. We played a 330 points, two divisions game of Hail Caesar with Hittites versus New Kingdom Egyptians. Garry and Bern were the Hittite commanders, while I had the Egyptians. Here are a few photos of our game and apologies for some of the unfinished troops on the Hittite side!
I really love biblical/bronze age games but we don't seem to play them that often. On the day the Egyptians had a fair bit of luck and were able to break one of the Hittite divisions. The Egyptian medium infantry archers proved to be surprisingly effective both with their ranged fire and in combat. Thanks to Garry and Bern for a fun game. We have a rematch planned when I have finished painting all the Hittite infantry...
