After a rather long break from the pre-gunpowder world, is pleased to bring you 4 new reports from the 2012 ITC in Lisbon, in which Hannibal himself takes command of a Carthaginian army and take on Alexander the Great, two lots of R*m*ns, and some Seleukids

The reports can be found here link via that link

They include all of the traditional rubbish, some new bits from Twitter and a short video analysis of the Alexandrian army strengths and weaknesses too.

As Hannibal was actually commanding the Carthaginian army, I have drafted in some almost-as-tough-as-Hannibal hard men to give the post match analysis and attempt to critique the perfection which was Hannibal's battle plan – so look out for Chuck Norris, Jack Bauer, Clint Eastwood and Jason Statham

Good reports. Dem Romans be nasty. Ever think of trying Impetus?

I've tried it a few times over the past few years and like some of the ideas in it, but it's not really grabbed enough of us at the club to begine to generate anything like critical mass of players – other periods and rulesets have had more traction.

Yay! I always enjoy your reports, even though I don't play any of those rules, they are a pleasure to read and watch with a big dose of humor too! Thanks!

Entertaining as always, but it seems that for the games against the Romans, the combination of heat and lunch might have been causing Hannibal to channel the Madaxeman grin
