This is another game in play testing my ancient rules by replaying historical battles. This one is the Battle of Trasimene. 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 4 in the attempt.
The battle report is here:

Despite it all being about naked dudes with spears, I am very much happy to see you kicking out batreps at the rapid rate. Looks like you’ve got settled in and got your mojo back; here’s hoping that all those factors lead to some real wargaming, the sort that sees men shooting stuff at each other, like civilized human beings! 😉

Thanks Jack. I do have a WW2 6mm game to post, am thinking about a small 6mm WW2 campaign, and starting a 5 Parsecs from Home campaign (this last one will be interesting with me having no suitable SF skirmish figures!).20/11/2019 at 13:33 #126830Just JackParticipant
Looking forward to the WWII batrep, and there’s no such thing as a ‘small campaign!’ 😉
“…and starting a 5 Parsecs from Home campaign (this last one will be interesting with me having no suitable SF skirmish figures!).”
I love the enthusiastic, unbridled optimism; no minis, no problem! 😉

I think for the first few games I can use some 1/87 railway figures and use some WW2 terrain not in storage or an SF boardgame board. If I get past the first few games I may invest in more stuff 🙂 But maybe not if it does not look sooo bad.
