Gaming Room update. Concrete went down today so is now drying.
lowly getting back into painting. I have painted up 6 stands of rear ranks for my Celtic warband and also a unit of Black Tree Design cavalry. I have some Black tree Celtic infantry to paint up but am a bit concerned that they dwarf the Warlord Games and Foundry ranges os am pondering whether or not to get more Foundry Celts to add to the army instead.
Tonight Kent and I got together for a 40 pt rematch of our last Cathage- vs Gaul game.
I now have Extra Impetvs 4 so was using the new Gallic lit in that, which meant no more VBU3 javelinmen but the option fo taking some heavy foot. as per usual I opted for 3 commands, a small cavalry command, a large warband command and a smaller command of heavy foot.
Cavalry (poor commander)
2x cav, 1x skirmisher
Light Foot Command (Average commander)
3x large warband (vets in front)
2x skirmishers- javelines
Heavy foot command
2x large solduri (VBU 6)
2x skirmishers- javelins
2x light chariots
The Celts deploy.
2x punic cav
4x Spanish scutari (javelins)
2x vet infantry
As usual a great game. As so often happen it came down to a race to break the other army first and in the end we both lost but had a lot of fun doing so in game that really went to the wire. I am already looking forward to a rematch.
