There are, due to this being at reduced scale, some discrepancies with numbers. Proportionately, there should be a few more Spanish and Libyans and there should be slightly more Romans than Carthaginians. When the battle is played at full scale (roughly twice as many figures) these descrepancies will iron themselves out.
We will play out the battle on Wednesday night using re-jigged, hexless, Command and Colours rules. If the changes work out, including rules for manipular formations, command groups, etc., I'll make the bones available by email attachment - more annon.
My wooden Command and Colours dice arrived from Canada this morning and I can't wait to throw them in anger.
