For this game we had two legions face off from the Roman civil war. Late Republican vs Late Republican. The forces were balanced and identical. So this would be the perfect chess match with the Tactica rules.
The gamers were, Mike, Wendell, Ken, Bill and myself. Mike, Wendell and Frank were on one side and Bill and I were on the other.
Each side secretly planned their initial setup. In Tactica this is one of the most critical parts of the game as nearly everything stems from this initial arrangement of the troops. To every one's surprise, each side mirrored the other for the most part with a few differences that would turn out to make all the difference in this game.
Here are some pictures of our initial set up.
This light infantry will play a crucial roll in the game.
This series of pictures show the initial two turns which involved a rapid and massive cavalry action on our left flank. By the way Bill and I have the army on the right side of the picture while Mike, Wendell and Ken are on the left a
We all had a wonderful time at Mikes as always. Who can not enjoy playing with his wonderful collection which brings us to the part where I display some of his troops through my meager efforts to take pictures.
Thanks for looking and all comments are welcome.
Game well my friends!!
