15mm Ancients wargaming eye candy, Hittites and Assyrians.

This batrep has already been published over at the other Rejects blogs, all I can say is that it was a one sided game for the other side but I had a good time and a win is a win especially when it's against Ray!

So here are some of my pictures from the game and have yourselves a good day!

The initial layout before we but more they screwed it up.

The town of Sansat circa 854BC.

Contractual Postie picture, took some pictures of his second man cave which I will post this week.

This represents myself, Prince Fran the flame haired.

The Assyrians deployed for battle.

Bloody Hittites!

There wouldn't be much difference 5 turns later!

Assyrian heavy chariots.

Assyrian medium cavalry.

Assyrian heavy infantry with ladders for siege work.

Assyrian baggage camp and harem!

Postie had 10 of these on the table and could be reinforcements but mine here turned out to be peasants gathering wood...dammit.

Slingers...useless gits.

Heavy infantry...not so useless.

I, Prince Fran the flame haired lead my forces from the back mind you...I am son number 25 according to my dad the King.

Arab camelry or as Ray described the ancient version of a bleeding panzer.

I lead some Hittite chariots into an ambush....cue evil laughter!

...and then give them a kicking......

...as seen here....cue more maniacal laughter!

Chariots engaging each other....

...bleeding Hittites have to double team me I'm that awesome and humble!

  1. A most unbiased and fair review of the game...NOT.

    Please stop rubbing salt into our wounds. I'm still smarting over this defeat. Has Ray calmed down yet? He looked a little 'unhinged' by the end of the game on Sunday?

  2. He's still frothing at the mouth....cue more maniacal laughter and some lightning!

  5. Hittites , indeed. I can see this may well lead to another Middle Eastern grudge for the ages.

  6. Prince Fran The Flame Haired is a badass name, and I would love to be lead by that guy. It's also nice to see you don't just stick to WW2 or other "modern" combat.

  23. This looks real fun, I wonder what the numbers mean, you said your "reinforcements" turned out to be peasants cutting wood. So is there a random element to this?

    ReplyDelete
