Hittites versus New Kingdom Egyptians - Chariots Rampant Game

On Sunday Bern, Gary, Garry and I met at the Vikings Club for a game of Chariots Rampant, the bronze age variant of Lion Rampant (see previous post for details). Both sides had two 24 point forces with Bern and Gary commanding the New Kingdom Egyptians, while Garry and I commanded the Hittites. We played the bloodbath scenario and the game was quite long but not too serious! In the end the superior firepower and resilience of the Egyptians proved to be too much for the Hittites who managed to stage a comeback of sorts once their spearmen closed with the Egyptian archers - it proved to be too little, too late. Thanks to Bern, Gary and Garry for a fun game.

  5. Looks great. Also demonstrates how the pleasure of biblical gaming can be experienced without masses of chariots and foot (which of course still look good if you have them).

    1. Thanks Colin, it is good to play games with smaller forces as well, as it can take so long to paint up entire armies.
