Pharsalus 48 BC

I had a very enjoyable day at the SOA Battle Day today, fighting Pharsalus with Andrew Brentnall, Paul Innes and Daivid Barnsdale. I was played the Caesarian left, and Paul Innes played Caesar to Andrew's Pompey. I won't say much about the game (suffice to say that history did not repeat itself) but I do have a somewhat blurry stop-motion video which shows the battle in progress. 

The event was well-attended, super organisation by Richard Lockwood with a great opening address by Phil Sabin, and much fun was had by all. The lovely minis are al from Andrew's collection, 3,500 of them. I am very taken with the look of these massed 6mm minis and would like to collect some myself at some stage- perhaps in a new period.
