Played this against my son today. Went to the Carthaginians 14-13. I lost all three Roman leaders to casualty rolls! Not only did this give him three extra flags, it also meant that by the end game I could not score hits with leader rolls.

I used my light infantry to shoot at his elephants, causing him to pull them back, which worked well becuase at the end of the game they trampled a number of reduced units in quick time.

Epic is great. Took nearly two hours to play, and we had a great time.

A friend and I played Zama yesterday.My lights were woefully unable to stop his elephants from closing with lots of medium infantry and causing a great deak of carnage.It came down to the wire with Rome winning 14-13 banners. It seems to be a well balanced scenario.

Just recovering from a epic weekend of gaming at Salute and running the London Marathon and i thought you guys would like to see 28mm Zama EPIC C&C game. These were taken at the SoA at Bletchly but the rematch was at Salute. A stunning 16 ft table and over 1400 beautifully painted figures and I was lucky to play on the Carthage side.

Hey Chris,
it looks like amazingly huge!
Even if I'm stronlgy stick to wooden blocks... I have to admit that painted miniatures have their own fascination.

I played this again today against my boy Daniel. This time I was the Carthaginians V his Romans. I won 14 to 12.
My elephants played merry havoc in the centre early on, and Dan had some bad luck battling back against them, letting them survive to fight again on later turns. Twice heavy infantry went down to single rolls!

Dan came back hard though across the line, and started pushing me back. It was not to be. Even after Scipio rallied the centre and pushed forward, Hannibal met him and victory was mine.

Very close and enjoyable game. Daniel didn't take may shots with his lights against the elephants, then again I tried to avoid letting him do it.

Great pics. Amazing!

Where did you get so many minis and how much time did it take to paint them all?

We shall never surrender.

A very balanced battle that went tied all the way. Romans used light infantry to kill some elephant blocks but the rest of the elephants wroke havoc amongst the Roman Legions. There was an interesting long fight between light cavalries with much attrition and no definite result. On the Roman left most units from both sides were destroyed and in the center the heavy units clashed against each other. Finally the dice granted a Carthaginian victory 14-13.
