#2 Retire to Chartagena 215BC...

Here are some pictures from tuesday and our 2nd try at my scenario "Retire to Chartagena 215BC". The only real change was that Abylix Division had got one more unit of Celtiberians. i.e 2 of them... and that we tryed a new way of when the game would end, it is all in the scenario in my last post


Map of the set-up. Publicus Division started of board and may enter from turn 1, which it did...


The set-up, Carthaginians to the left and Romans to the right. Maximus Division started to make a swift advance against the Iberians under Abylix command on the hills... and Publicus Division started to wheel left and advance against the Carthaginian right flank under Hasdrubals command.


The Cretan archers managed to temporary drive away the Iberian Light Infantry, that seeked cover in the olive grove. maximus Division ended its swift advance just down the hill...


Björn measure the distance... The Celtiberians on the hill left there uphill possition and charged the Roman legioneres, managed to drive on away... and the Iberians sheltering in the olive grove charged the Cretan Archers that runway...for good...


The 2 battle lines approach each other for the final struggle...


Combat all over...this time the Carthaginians come out on top, forcing the Roman army to flee of the field...

Next time we will play a scenario based on the Battle of Castulo that was the first part of the Battle of the Upper Baetis in 211BC.
