I posted a battle report on this forum for those interested.

It wasn't called " Plastica" for nothing. Beautiful work.

Great looking battle, Gotta love all those Romans!
Good that it was so close, keeps everyone interested!

Tactica is a great game!

Armati and Tactica are very much under appreciated, both give GREAT games. The Renaissance rules in the original Armati are quite good.

Thanks men for the kind comments. I love Tactica. A great simple game with lots of command decisions. January we plan on doing a Medieval Tactica game. Which has some differences. I hope to do a report on that one.

Great looking game! I always enjoyed Tactica. Just couldn't seem to fit it to scenario very well. Played Armati a few times. Liked it as well. Just moved on to other sets.

Best gaming experience that I ever had at Historicon was a Tactica game. It came right down to the wire and everyone was hanging on the outcome.

Beautiful game!

From start to finish, very nicely done!

Not only were the table and troops visually appealing, but the background shots of the fortifying beverages (beer or mead for the barbarians and wine for the Romans) added the extra touch of color.

Well done.

Who dares defy the might of Rome, the outrage!
