I would like to note that this game was inspired by 'The Big Red Bat' and historical events on or about 22 June 217B.C.
Here are the armies in their initial deployment.
The Ptolemaic forces were going to crush both Seleucid flanks and roll up the center from each end. The Seleucid generals were planing to smash the Ptolemaic left flank and then roll up their main line while fighting a delaying action on their left.
the three pictures below show the initial move withe the Seleucid army at the bottom and moving from their left flank to the right. Note that at this time each side is initiating their plans. There is movement on all flanks but very little if any activity in the center.
The result of this epic conflict was the Seleucid units smashing all opposition and clearing their right flank, just as planned.
But eventually the Seleucid's prevented the Ptolemaic army from wining on this flank also but at a great loss.
Thanks to Mike and also to all who attended this game and helped to make it another special event. And as always, I have more pictures of Mikes wonderful figures.
Impressive is it not?
