This game was part of our introduction to Warmaster Ancients practice session at
Worthy Gaming in Preston. Using a Games Workshop plastic battleboard (I hate the
things) 6 foot by 4 foot and 6mm armies. 1500 points a side. The main fighting
arm of the Indians were three units of heavy chariots and 2 units of elephants.
Personally I try to avoid the use of elephants in WMA so had a lot more units,
especially of cheap Numidian cavalry (5 units) and Gallic/Spanish warband (9

A tough game that the Carthaginians almost lost. Swung by huge gaps in the
Indian line. In a fantastic series of dice rolls Carthaginian cavalry were able
to get behind what remained of the Indian infantry and attack them both in the
flank and rear. Five units of Indians were destroyed in a single turn and with
the losses they had already suffered, that was enough to break the Indian army.
I left the Indian elephants strictly alone as they were just to tough to kill.
