First game using new Hexon,first outing for Sea people/Libyan Alliance v Egyptians-
The initial set up (rules used dbm ,having tried over the years to find other mutually acceptable substitutes) and biscuits.
The Libyans soon succumbed to the Egyptian chariots apart from these fellows in rough terrain and their general accompanied by his bodyguard.Their flank collapsed.
Meanwhile the sword armed Sea people came on and pushed the Egyptians back...
Eventually Pharaoh was harried off the table as his men failed to stem the Sea people tide. The Egyptians tried vainly to get heir right flank across to the left. A draw was agreed upon and the game ended with a handshake. It was fun,not quite as expected but a very close run thing.

New recruits

Here are some Lamming chaps acclimatising themselves to the Duchy-
 I hoped the plants might make them feel at home...
The scene on the extension tabletop yesterday-
The massed ranks of the Egyptians in the foreground with Minifigs Sea People behind.
I look forward to my first game with these fellows soon.

Has it been that long?

Can't believe it's been that long since I posted here! I have succumbed (it being my birthday) to some Lamming New Kingdom Egyptians and chariots this morning- 16 chariots and 108 infantry.Pics when they arrive.
