Clash of the Titans

Sundays game was one of the biggest games we had played, in WAB, for a number of years. Both sides comprised of armies at 6200 points. One Spartan and Allied and the other was Macedonian and their allies. Myself and Spyros played the Macedonians and Leroy and John played the Spartans. Considering the size of the game the rules flowed very well with only a few stops and starts for food and drink breaks.
Leroy's 1st Corp Spartans. He fielded four units of Spartan and five normal Hoplite units.

The games lasted from 12pm to 4.30pm. In truth the main reason the game was so short is that I defeated Leroy's Spartan King's unit in battle and then caught/killed him in the follow on movement. This little action caused Leroy's and John's army to conduct a leadership test, which almost half failed and ran off the field. Sorry Leroy I have never seen a Spartan Army defeated so quickly (maybe next time).
