I’d rather be lucky than good and I had a few dice rolls break my way.

I do feel like I need more heavy troops. Yes, the slingers are solid and the Pezhetairoi have proven to be fantastic but I faced three units of Hoplites with only one. Those Hoplites definitely under performed against the Numidians. I had two fate dice and could’ve re-rolled the attack. I might’ve put fatigue  on the two commanders and that reduced Hoplite unit if I’d wiped out the Numidians. I could’ve attacked them again or I could’ve gone for the Hoplites. Only one if the commanders was within reach so I could’ve piled on. I think I still would’ve lost my Hoplites as they were clearly overextended but they could’ve had more effect.

The left hand Pezhetairoi unit was going to get mauled but I could’ve played that better. Doing the Defend action, where hits are first cancelled by your Fight skill and then remaining hits are canceled by your armor would’ve been better than a counter attack. Henry’s Hoplites and my Pezhetairoi have the same fight skill and armor save and his unit was bigger so dragging out the fight was probably the better option.

I’m  surprised my slingers survived the Hoplites attack. As it was, I had three break points and Henry had four. But only by 2 models. It was a close game!
