Despite routing another Spartan Hoplite unit, hit in both flank and rear the Athenians are destroyed. Seeing the fate of their heavy Infantry the supporting archers and light infantry take to their heels and flee the field…

The last men standing on the stricken field… exhausted Spartan Hoplites.

On the left flank, after breaking the Athenian heavy Infantry a Spartan phalanx, that had been taken in the flank by a spirited charge of Athenian skirmishers can turn their full attention on their tormentors…

In what proves to be a short and decisive action the Spartans get stopped in their tracks!!!

“This is a story you’ll tell your grandchildren, and mightily bored they’ll be too!”

Shouts Nobbicus the Brewmaster of Athens’s ‘Fisherman’s Arms’ as he leads his victorious shower back into the depths of the woods…

VICTORY!!!

The might of Sparta drawn up on the ground where the Athenian host had stood. Their hard fighting King, Queen and senior Generals salute their victory…
