Nice.

That is a pretty huge battle there. And a very thin Carthaginian line. Precious room for error.

Thanks for the post, it's interesting to learn about this series. Here is the same battle (Ilipa) in Commands & Colors: Ancients



In this one the Romans are at bottom and you can see how overweighted the flanks are. Carthage is backed up to the last row and packed tightly, so little room for retreats, which is deadly in CC:A. Also the excellent Carthaginian Heavy Infantry is behind everybody else, and difficult to get into the battle.

Nice review. I'm surprised it's so uneven, given how many HI and PH the Carthaginians have.
