Another rout - appalling luck. My opponent went first every time and I am sure that I managed to throw a 1 in combat on a D4, D6, D8, D10 & D12! I may be exaggerating but if so not by much.
Still it looks as if the system may provide at least a few games next year and may stimulate some painting which is always a good thing
Earlier in the day I took the opportunity to visit the Scythian exhibition at the British Museum. Some beautiful objects well presented and set in context.

The rules are designed for ECW and similar period with Pike used much more in defence than attack so the experiment was a little unsatisfactory. Definitely worth another go with in period armies.
I forgot to take a photo until the very end so the only unit left on the table were the above!

I foolishly split my forces and lost 3 men to Cur (2 with 1 grenade) and another 3 to the Egyptians. Still great fun as IHMN usually is.
I have Empires of the Dead on order thanks to a good Black Friday sale so I will soon also have a vampire force for that system and potentially for IHMN as well

My successors got a run out this week with me taking Lysimacids against Tim with Seleucids. It was a run through the Pulse of Battle rules. The photo shows a Thracian warband running away- soon to be followed by a number of other units.
I managed to kill an elephant but that was about it!
