The first game of a Pyrrhic campaign. The rules being used are impetuous.


Picture and map heavy.

D –
I echo the comments/compliments made directly on your blog: indeed, well done!

Have been considering some kind of campaign of late as the one-off battles (as big and interesting as they sometimes are) lack the "pressure" of the larger picture.

Your table and armies looked fantastic and the maps were much appreciated.

Having dabbled with IMPETVS, I wonder if you used any of the advance rules or created any house rules for the battle?

Thanks for posting.

Yes, agree with Chris. Love the idea and the execution!

Well I should point out Phil (the blog owner) is the main driver for this one with the figures and maps his. Some of the photography and the battle report maps are my contribution. Oh and the link here on TMP.
