I’m back with the next installment. This time recruiting a new up and coming general.
Check out the before I played and after I won pics! His first H&C game play.
It was another cool morning. Scipio pulled his cloak tighter and smiled. He was content to feel the cold breeze. Soon he would be hot. Hot from the rush of blood thru his veins and the straining of tearing the hearts out of more of Hannibals Punic army.
Fought in a hilly ravine, this ambush plays fast!
Low Rout Point count Carthage loses at 35.
This is a short AAR! For those of you who have played this battle you know the story.
Scipio, is promoted at 27 years of age to Proconsul, sent to Spain to ostensibly help win the 2nd Punic War. In reality he has a personal mission.
His Father and Uncle lie rotting in Spain. Scipio wants revenge….
Carthage’s allies show signs of leaving the fold, 3 Punic armies vie for political gain. Scipio seizes the moment and finds Hasdrubal in a secure hilltop camp.
Abandoning traditional tactics historically Scipio flanked and attacked the camp. Hasdrubal thought the better part of valour was to live to fight another day. His crack troops and Cavalry leave the field non plussed at Scipios tactics.
There is one thing certain in history. It will repeat itself. However this is not always the case with replay and what if’ ing of Ancient Historical Battles.
So there we were, fresh from the fight at Siga, after crushing rather handily the Carthage army. Statorius had barely a knick on his helmet. His newly trained and disciplined Legions crushed the over confident cavalry dependent Carthage army.
Only to find ourselves in a pickle at Tingis. If I change their historical setup then, the Carthage army would naturally have been stronger too…. where do you go with that and how does that impact other future battles in the series for the 2nd Punic War?
One of the last battles of the Syhpax led rebellion against Carthage.
The AAR is going to be short as the vid brings it to life better than words can. There are some cool new units, new leaders and generally speaking this is a good looking battle. [see video by searching for Siga!]
