    This is another game in play testing my ancient rules by replaying historical battles. This one is the Battle of Ticinus. It is a small cavalry battle and so not much tactical going on. 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 2 in the attempt.

    The battle report is here:

    And here is a shot of the initial Carthaginian cavalry charge clashing with the Velites:

    Flankers really make a difference.

    Yes, I am in the camp that for ancients, flanked units fighting to the front and side are effectively goners.
