A painting guide for Numidians that fought for and against Rome.

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. On the down side they have been quite slow. 5.5 hours for the first one and 4.5 hours for the second – both of which were played to completion. We only had 3.5 hours for the third game and didn’t come near a conclusion – I think we only played 4 turns each.
