DBMM V2 Galatian vs Carthaginian
Another (!!) Dbmm game versus Stephen today using Galatians, essentially to use 3 Scythed Chariots he painted up for me (in exchange for some 10mm Tanks). Faced Cathaginan combined arms which managed to generate almost perfect terrain and then I managed to deploy first. Usual frustration in use of Warband as near impossible to get to grips with anything, anywhere, anytime unless on enemy terms (ie flank contacts, uphill in difficult). Numidian Lh and Cartho Cav did for my right flank Cmd allowing them access to rear of my central Cmd of warriors. Left flank Cav/Chariot Cmd held up by more Numidians and Cartho Spears (now viable advancing into contact compared to v1.0). Several new features of version 2 came to notice (Ps now dont QK Warband and Aux must pursue other foot) AuxS very tough still, especially when uphill on wooded hill !!
