The Pezhetairoi are dangerously exposed as the second unit of Hoplites advanced herding the pigs in front of them momentarily distracting the Pezhetairoi. They then rush forward!

Sadly counter attacking a bigger unit with similar armor to yours is not a good idea. This photo shows where my unit used to be!  And there are those smug Carthaginians trying to decide if they want to bathe first before attacking again.Sadly counter attacking a bigger unit with similar armor to yours is not a good idea.

The Hoplites in the center pressed the Numidians hard and pushed them back but with relatively few casualties.  They then decided to attack the reduced Carthaginian Hoplites.  They seriously reduced them but they still stand. Then the Carthaginian commander, unable to budge his exhausted troops,  leaps into the fray and with unparalleled savagery decimated the Macedonian Hoplites.

The Carthaginians charge and charge again and again and keep cutting down the slingers. But there are so many! And they cause a few casualties. They hold! Barely.

Bradicles watches the Pezhetairoi on the far right flank as they first loose their javelins and then charge into the unarmored Carthaginian Hoplites. They savage them causing them to flee the field. The Pezhetairoi then herd the pigs back to camp.

Bradicles has to admire the Carthaginian commander. Such boldness! Such glory! He looks to his slingers as they look up at him, bloodied and exhausted but still standing. He smiles and points to the herd of pigs. “We feast!” The men cheer!

Eeyoricles considers the day. He reflected that on the plus side with so many paying the ferryman this day, there’d be more than enough food tonight. He almost smiled at the thought.

Almost.
