Jim's plastic Romans v. Steve's metal Romans
500 points in 4 divisions each in our first Hail Caesar Roman Civil War battle.
Plastix (in the foreground) had 2 legionary divisions in the centre (each 4 cohorts & 2 light archers each) with a mixed division of eastern auxilia foot & horse on each flank.
Both sides advanced their left, though Plastix's left flank cavalry seemed singularly reluctant to go anywhere.
Plastix's RH legion held on desperately as the other one finished off their opponents and turned to help it.
Plastix personally lead his last sound cohort into the fray in a desperate charge for death or glory. Unfortunately he got death - dying heroically in the front line.
This was a desperately bloody battle, even the winners didn't have a lot left unshaken. But for the moment the superiority of metals over plastics has been established...Hail Caesar Metalix Maximus!
