|something interesting going on here.|
After Ian and my first remote playtest of Ian's Rein-Bow Warriors on 30 SEP, we were back in action at Tell Dapur for a second fight of the battle only four days later. A few rules modifications and clarifications were noted and off we went.
Did this battle result in a different outcome than the first? Please read on to discover for yourself in this brief battle pictorial.
|Armies face-off from across the table|
|Chariots swing into motion |
zipping all over no-man's land.
|Enemy chariots clash on the Egyptian right in an even match.|
|While on the left, the Egyptians are outnumbered.|
|In the chariot clash on the left,|
the Egyptians break off and rout away.
Not a good start toward winning a battle.
|On the right chariot swarm, |
arrows fly as chariots make another pass.
|In the center chariot clash,|
the Egyptians are again outnumbered.
|The fleeing Egyptian chariots are hotly pursued.|
Out of arrows, chariots return to base.
|Help! I'm being tailed!|
|Showing that chariots have great maneuverability, |
Hittite pursuers swing around behind Egyptian lines
while Egyptian chariots swing in behind them!
|Ramesses' Guard wheels to face the intruders.|
|Out of arrows and behind enemy lines, Hittites |
sweep behind the Egyptian line then head for home.
Egyptian chariots take up the chase.
|Finally, the infantry step forward to give battle |
while Egyptian bowmen find their mark.
|With a pair of Hittite chariots resuppled and heading back, |
a second pair reach the supply wagons.
Egyptian chariots spin around and take up position.
|The infantry fight continues.|
|Both battle lines begin to crumble.|
|But victory rests at the feet of Ramesses!|
