Yet another Carthage versus Rome Basic Impetus. This time it was evening game outside (or there were actually three matches, each taking about 1 hour). We have now established quite solidly that each game takes no more than hour, and it means one can play quite good number of matches during day. Roman army almost as usual… in it’s mobile outfit.3x FP, M:5, VBU:6, I:1, VD:3, Pilum 2x S, M:8, VBU:3, I:0, VD:1, Javelin 1x CL, M:12, VBU:3, I:1, VD:1, Javelin (Numidian Light Cavalry) 2x CM, M:10, VBU:4, I:1, VD:3
Carthage on the other side adopted well established structure but ventured a bit for Iberians. Boosted light cavalry, less skirmishers, Italian allies and Hannibal veterans. Instead of Gauls, javelin armed Iberians.1x FP, M:5, VBU:6, I:1, VD:3 (Hannibal veterans) 1x FP, M:5, VBU:4, I:1, VD:3 (Italian Allies) 2x FL, M:8, VBU:4, I:1, VD:1, Javelin (Iberian Scutarii) 1x S, M:8, VBU: 2, I:1, VD:1, Javelin 2x CL, M:12, VBU: 4, I:1, VD:2, Javelin (Spanish Light Cavalry) 1x CM, M:10, VBU:5, I:1, VD:1 1x EL, M:8, VBU:4, I:4, VD:1
Iberian Scutarii had their debut. They did not perform really badly, but nor did they perform well. In any case, easier to control than Gauls. Later in one game where proxies were used to represent all Iberian army, they were actually quite interesting and bit unusual to play.
