Punic War 3 – A Field of Glory Battle Report

This is the third Field of Glory game that Chris Harrod and I have tried. I took Later Carthaginian and Chris took Mid Republican Roman. In fact all three games have been with the Later Carthaginian and Mid Republican Roman 600 point Starter Armies. All have been good games and seemlngly good simulations of Punic War battles.

We only had 3.5 hours for the third game and didn’t come near a

I’m interested in the Punic Wars and Roman conquest of Hispania (240 – 20 BC) and Carthaginian was my first ancients army. But that was 20mm and plastic. Now I’m a 15mm guy so I’ve been building up Carthaginian army for the period for 20 years. The army has done service under DBM but more recently using Field of Glory.

Republican Roman Light Foot in Field of Glory

Under DBM and earlier WRG games the Republican Roman light foot started as spear and Javelin guys then got upgraded to Javeliin and Shield guys in the Second Punic War. But Field of Glory does it differently. This has implications for the Mid Republican Starter Army.
