Returning to the ravaging of the Hittite Empire with Chariots Rampant, George and I decided to play the second scenario in the Lion Rampant rulebook, Defending the Indefensible, with an important well forming the objective. With the evening sun streaming through the windows at BIG, some long shadows were cast on the table which to my mind could have been the rays of the rising sun as the Sea Peoples emerged out of the early dawn to fall upon the sleepy Hittites!
The well was defended by three units of Spearmen. Would their reinforcements arrive in time to stop them being overwhelmed and the Sea Peoples peeing in the well?
Another fun game of Chariots Rampant that could have gone either way - if only my army had been a bit more enthusiastic at the start and some of my dice rolling better! The upgrades George made to his Light Chariot units was certainly effective and allowed him to use them appropriately. When I get around to painting my New Kingdom Egyptians it is certainly an upgrade I'll need to factor in.
