in refight of their 1995 Maharajah battle.
We decided to fight an "historical" battle. The 1995 army lists easily transposed to the 2011 rules. The same figures were used. The player's hair had changed colour & in Mark's case there was a significant change in profile, but the result was the same as in 1995.
The pics are taken from behind Jim's right & the description below is from the same viewpoint.
In the centre, Jim's barbarian charge was beaten off with small losses & the Phalanxes closed in to slug it out.
On the left, the cavalry fight had wins & losses on both sides, but Mark's cataphracts made the critical difference. One tied up Jim's Companions, the other beat a big Heavy Cav unit, then rode down 2 Peltasts units to outflank the enemy centre.
With the right just holding on, the left destroyed and the centre being surrounded from the left Jim conceeded.
