A triple D B A Game featuring Seleucids versus Ptolemaic. A great forest of pike gathered Monday at M. Sanderson's house for a triple DBA fielding of the collection of S. Gross fantastic miniatures.
Above image: two of the three Ptolemaic commanders marshaling their forces across the quite open battlefield. The left flank had a river but neither force deigned to use it strategically.
My command above. Seleucid pike and elephants with a knight general.
A view towards the left. S. Gross would succumb to the Ptolemaic power first and our left flank failed. Then the right flank general under C. Wilkowski would also fail sending that flank into a drudging army.
My center force crashed into M. Sanderson's force and we had a grinder of a battle in the middle using all the tricks in the book to try and decide the game. In the end it would be the Ptolemaic forces that controlled Syria and the fertile grain basket of the middle east.
My general knight stand.
The most promising fighting that took place on our right flank Against C. Southard.
The end game. I took out the opposing general but had demoralized my forces by losing more than four stands.
