Somewhere near Utica, a Pompeian army under Cato (left), with local Numidian allies under Juba (some shown in foreground), faces a smaller but more confident Caesarian force (right).
Below, elephants trot past the city gates. It's a short but a glorious life, in the elephant corp! I got to use all my elephant casualty markers by 9 PM.
Above, the very numerous and colourful Numidian city militia and hordes of light horse, wisely hung back to let the Romans sort it our between themselves. Below, Cato confers with a subordinate. The newly-raised Pompeian legions turned out to be surprisingly effective force...
Above a Pompeian cohort of inferior troops, charged by superior Caesarian foes, and having failed to counter charge, pulls off something of a coup by dint of expert dice rolling! Several wins by the aggressive (and phenomenally lucky) Cato drove a deep wedge into the Caesarian lines.
Eventually they broke through (above) and subsequently turned, ready to roll up the Caesarian line (below). Although there were still a lot of Caesarians on the table, we felt that they would now need to retire from the field.
