Romans vs Hellenics

It's been a while since Martin was able to come over for a game, so I am quite glad we managed to get a short game of our Dux Bellorum-Impetus hybrid this afternoon and knock back a couple of beers.

Martin used his Early Imperial Romans and I used my Pergamenes and some Asiatics as some sort of a Hellenistic army.

I tried to delay contact with the legionaries by sending my skirmishers forward on the flanks, hoping to win the flanks and then envelope the Romans.
Light cavalry on the flanks.
Once the Roman legionaries make contact, the contest is over!
The rules are pretty solid, but as we had small armies there weren't many tactical options available. On the plus side I think we remembered most of the rules this time!
