Yesterday night I played my first Epic scenario ever.
Reading forum all around we decided to give a try to RAPHIA (217 BC): it has been told to be one of the more balanced epic scenario.

Seleucid amry started moving on both flank, trying to fire some arrows... with few luck.
Ptolemaic fired back on both flanks with minor Ligh Units skirmish.
After some minor order ... the APOCALYPSE.
Ptolemy played a "Mounted Charge", allowing him to move 7 units (and rolling +1 attack dice).
He advanced with his right Leader (Echecratus) supported by Heavy Cavalry and also with Elephants on both flanks.
The result was an hard hit on Seleucid Army (partial result 7-2).
In the meantime Heavy Infantries on both ceneter side advanced a little bit, without taking part to battles in the whole game.
Antiochus managed to gain more control over his Right Flank, but on the other side Ptolemaic managed easily to gain full control over his Right Flank.
Echecratus + HC definitely ruled this game, outflanking Light opponent units (avoiding thei retreat).

Final Result: PTOLEMAIC 13 - 7 SELEUCID
Dice were unbalanced, favouring Ptolemaic side... but that's FORTUNE OF WAR.

The War Council shown above is wrong and mixed with that for Cannae.

The Seleucids pressed hard with their elephants, also trying to kill the enemy elephants. Both phalanxes clashed and destroyed each other in the center. On the Seleucid right there was a long cavalry battle with no decisive winner. On the Seleucid left there was much going forth and back. Finally the Seleucids took some advantge for a 14-9 win.
