This week we got our 6mm ancients back on the table for spot of Hail Caesar – our first game in quite some time. The armies were Pyrrhic vs Early Carthage and were, more-or-less, evenly matched. Please do pop over to the blog and see how we got on.
Looks good, does HC work with base vs base, so you could in theory have any number of any scale figures on a base with it making no difference to the rules?
Short answer is yes, indeed. There is no figure removal, so base vs base works fine. It is better if each unit consists of two bases, so you can show open order, column and line formations. My ‘standard’ sizes units are all on two bases, so that works. My ‘small’ units are on single bases, so I have to make it clear verbally that my Tarantine horse are now open order, now close order etc. Not a bother really.
