HOTT Carnage, Game 2

Game 2

Numidians against Early Imperial Romans. My Early Imperial Romans! My Numidians! It was way cool using two of my armies at the same time!





I even took a God...


...but he never showed!


We advanced towards each other. My initial plan was to use the speed of my mounted to catch the EIR Blades before the got to the hill (they having deployed after my Numidians, so I was kinda in the wrong place), but...



...as we got closer, his Spears (EIR Auxilia really, but HOTT doesn't have Ax) looked like they might threaten my flank, so...


...I broke off my advance to the East and swarmed the Spear to the West.


In the meantime, I raced a Rider to the crest of the hill just in time to be contacted and double overlapped by the EIR Blades. Just as well I was uphill, I was only pushed back.



In the West, my Riders started making significant inroads into the EIR Spears (Ax).


Only to be very rudely chopped to the front.


To the East, numbers were beginning to tell.




And so died the Rider on the hill. But at least my Elephant bounced opponents to the front and flank.


Another Sp/Ax went the way of their companions...


...and I saw a golden opportunity to chop down the EIR Hero General. So I pounced...


...only to loose my own Hero General, and the game. 8AP destroyed (including General) to 6. I had overlooked the bit in the rules where Heroes die to Heroes! Bother.
