Historically, the Hatrene sided with Parthia in their war against Rome, even supplying armoured camel troops. Hatra easily defied Rome from behind her strong fortification, on the field of battle, that might prove another story.

Thanks for posting more of your beautiful games. I've been wanting to ask, how do you play those attractive tall hills in DBA3? Because figs can't stand on the slopes?

They can pose an inconvenience at times but we usually specify where the actual position of troops and move on from there, however I am now looking at other options.

Some have indentations which serve as steps, but this is not consistent throughout the collection so that may change.

Another option is to make them half the height and place larger rock formations (same size as a cluster of trees) on top that can be removed, much like the scatter material I use for scrub or rocky ground.

I will wait until the series if finished before starting those projects.

I will post the results at the new Fanaticus when that time comes.
