Our most recent Command & Colours outing afforded another opportunity to field my Hittite city walls. As it was a siege I had to supplement them from my box of wooden blocks. Still the ensemble looked pretty impressive.
The black pipe cleaners marked the edges of the Assyrian ramp - built in order to negate the stout walls.
Graham and Tom led the Assyrians. Most of the figures are actual Assyrians but the siege engines are represented by Roman artillery
As the Assyrians blundered forward the Caananites - led by John - managed to set alight both siege engines - the rotters!
The Caananite figures were actually mostly Egyptians. Close enough?
After losing the siege engines the Assyrians made several more assaults...
...but the Caananites saw them all off.
Eventually the Assyrians conceded - a walkover for the Caananites this time but I'd like to try this scenario again.
