Epic Scale HOTT
That's what Geoff and I played last night; a 72AP game with Da Vinci Italians facing a Greek Mythological army. This isn't a long report, as I didn't take photos following the curse of the game. I had the Italians, and Geoff took the Greeks. We bashed away at each other for quite a while, trying to make a breakthrough and cursed on one flank by a mutual lack of PIPs. Then our respective Spear lines met in the centre. Geoff slipped a Flyer into the rear of my CinC to block his retreat, and that was it - my losses were greater than his, so it was the end of the game.
Here's some pictures.
The armies setup up and ready to go.
My right flank - Knights, light cavalry and tanks.
Spears in the centre.
My airforce - two Flyers support and Airboat. Lack of PIPs kept them inactive for most of the game.
The tanks and Knights move up.
Geoff's largest Leonardo tank is a work of art.
Update: I forgot to mention that all of the figures are Geoff's
