|Egyptian leader exhorts the troops|
|Sea People advance|
Last Tuesday night I went over to Rick's place and we played a game of Chariots Rampant, a bronze age variant of Lion Rampant. Here are a few photos of our game. I was the leader of the Sea People, Rick was the New Kingdom Egyptian leader and we both had 26 point forces and played the standard bloodbath scenario. The Sea People had an extra infantry unit and three crew chariots (although I forgot to tweak the stats for these). The Egyptian chariots were expert drivers which meant they could move half a move and shoot which was very handy indeed, well worth the additional two point cost.
We rolled for leader skills - I was insipid offering no courage bonus, while Rick was commanding, offering a single re-roll each turn for his troops. The wheels fell off the Sea People attack early on and the Egyptians were able to use their superior firepower to good effect. In the end the Egyptians won fairly easily with a few casualties but all units intact, while the Sea People lost two chariot units, the leader, a Lukka warriors unit and another Pelset warrior unit was battered. Thanks to Rick for a fun game, the Sea People will return!
