Mike supplied all of the troops and as always they were superbly painted and presented. Each side was evenly balanced with the only exception being that the 3rd Legion had more units armed with pilum and had the advantage of all it's heavy infantry being able to use the Roman maneuvering and deployment options while the Numidian force only had about half of their heavy infantry able to do the same (the ex Roman soldiers).
The Romans were played by Bill Weber and Jamie Welling (who's work I will show at the end of this report).
The Numidians were played by the game host Mike Adams and myself.
Here we can see the initial set up from the Roman side of the table.
During the next two moves, the Romans advanced their cavalry on each flank to impact the Numidians opposite them. This view is from the Roman right and Numidian left flanks. As you can see there are great cavalry battles on each flank with each side hoping to defeat the other and thus allowing them to sweep in behind their enemy's main battle line. In addition the Numidians had continued the advance of their heavy infantry.
