Hannibal’s clash with Sempronius at the Trebbia River during the Second Punic War was refought at Salute 2014 by John (featuring ‘Dave’) in 1/32 scale. I have a Carthaginian army of the same sculpts by HäT Industrie in 1/72 so this display was a special treat.
Even grander in scale was Caesar’s invasion of Britain staged by WSS Magazine. Legionnaires disembarking from their triremes lined up on the shore to face massed chariots and ferocious tribesmen.
Scarab Miniatures put on a War & Conquest battle with Greeks defending a narrow pass against the Persians and their allies.
The Battle of Cynoscephalae in 197 BC saw phalanxes clash with Roman legions and was organised by the Society of Ancients, using the Lost Battles set of rules.
In a respite from the massed battles of the era, bands of gladiators fought each other in Jugula, the new game by Studio Tomahawk.
