Last Sunday down at the Vikings Club Garry and I played a Hittite versus New Kingdom Egyptian 200 point L'Art de la Guerre (ADLG) game. Garry commanded three corps of Egyptians and I commanded the same number of Hittites. The Hittites had some early success with their chariots on both flanks but once the infantry closed they suffered heavy casualties. The Sherden proved very tough in the centre and even the Egyptian bowmen proved surprisingly effective against the Hittite spearmen. Thanks to Garry for a fun game, it is always good to get these armies out and roll a few dice!

  2. Thanks Aaron, yes I thought they'd do a bit better that, the Hittite infantry definitely under performed.
