    This is another game in play testing my ancient rules by replaying historical battles. This one is the Battle of Metaurus.  I am play testing the rules by chronologically replaying all the Peter Sides scenarios from his Historical Battles books.

    I have been slow in play testing these rules for the last few years.  For November 2019 I set myself a challenge to play the 10 First and Second Punic Wars battles from the book.  This battle is game 8 in the attempt.  I actually played all 10 battles by the end of November and working my way through writing them up.  Only 2 more to write up!

    The battle report is here:


    And here is a shot of the main infantry line prior to contact:


    Very interesting Shaun, a real race to see if the Roman infantry can win quickly enough.

    Yes, it turned out to be a very interesting game, unlike what I expected to happen!
