Last Friday afternoon Garry came over to my place with his beloved Pontic army. He used to run the Pontics in comps back in the days of WRG 5th and 6th edition. We played a 6000 point Magna Mortem et Gloriam (MeG) game with my Late Republican Romans taking on his Pontics. The Romans deployed defensively on a hill, while the Pontics were more aggressive and had a hard time fitting all their troops on the table edge. We had a late start to the game and were pretty slow playing it as we both haven't played MeG for a while. In the end we ran out of time and the game was a draw. It was good fun to get the troops out and a highlight for the Romans was when they broke the Bastarnae. Hopefully we will get some more MeG games in soon.
