Last Wednesday night I met Alan down at the Vikings Club Lanyon for a two division, 330 point Hail Caesar game. Here are a few photos of our game. Alan fielded a Spartacus Slave Revolt army in their first outing ever, against my Late Republican Romans. His best units of gladiators/trained slaves and Gallic and German slave warbands quickly broke the Roman right flank and it was all downhill for the Romans from there.
Half of the Roman legionaries were raw recruits with the freshly raised rules but these didn't actually perform too badly and outshone some of their more experienced companions. In the end it was another day of shame and ignominy for the Romans, fleeing for the hills, while Spartacus' slaves celebrated a temporary reprieve from crucifixion! Thanks to Alan for an interesting game.
