The photo below shows some of the contents of the box - rules, scenario book (15 scenarios), dice and cards. The game also includes a hex gridded board and hundreds of wooden blocks as playing pieces. What really appealed to me was that John's game used 15mm toys on Hexon boards. It looked pretty good. Regular readers will be aware that I am no stranger to Hexon and that my ancient armies are in 6mm. Smaller than 15mm so they should fit in the hexes - right? Some experimenting revealed that it should indeed work and my order for the game was placed.
As usual all photos are taken from my (the Roman) point of view.
Regulus is seen here leading a unit of medium infantry. More mediums are to the right, heavies behind and elephant fodder in front. Most figures are by Baccus.
The Roman right - skirmishers exchange volleys of pointy sticks.
Quite a jolly evening's entertainment - from start to finish in less than 2 hours - including several instances of looking things up in the main rules. The next scenario (possibly in 2 weeks) is Ticinus River in 218BC - Scipio versus Hannibal.
