Anyway Ardashir tried his best to apologise but the Greek lads were having none of it so it would be a fight to the death!
Playing the Sassanids was myself with heavy horse and a couple of elephants (yippee, my 1st time with efalumps).
And the overall commander Stuart with 2 units of heavy horse and some mad looking little dudes in white (who did sweet FA all game!)
Facing us with a menacing looking elongated line of hoplites with spears (are they all hoplites?) was Robert a veteran gamer who claimed he hadn't played DBM for 8 years!! (yeah right, your not fooling anybody :-)
A gorgeous looking army I think you'll agree.
It's always great when someone turns up with a nicely painted army all fresh and new to your eyes!
Stuart edged his Heavy cavalry slowly towards the shiny spear tips.
And so did I. I have to point out at this stage that this was only my 2nd game of DBM and although I understand the principals of the game from DBA I can't be held at all accountable for what's about to unfold!!! (anyway that's my slimy attempt at wriggling out of blame for the upcoming carnage over with so back to the slaughter sorry game).
