A wargamer's never ending battle to paint and play

A few pics from the start of my Hail Caesar Game
It was great to get the Romans and Ancient Britons out to give them an airing. There was sufficient for 3 'divisions' (using the Hail Caesar term, rather than the strict military term) on each side which gave an interesting game. The division containing 4 Legionary cohorts might be regarded as rather strong, and indeed they proved the battle winner, however there was plenty of action all across the field. The first game with an opponent took 4 hours. I thought this was excellent. With so many rules the battle is often in the early stages at that point. You know when a game is a success when you start repainting them and improving them that very same evening and commence list writing as to what else you need to add. Even better my opponent, Ian, went away and bought 4 cohorts of Roman Legion from Warlord Games straight away! Inspired!
