Yesterday the Society of Ancients held their battle day. This year it was Adrianople; last year it was Bosworth.
I have nothing against those battles of course, but as I do not have figures for them those battle days have passed without much comment or fanfare from yours truly.
Battle day for 2023 will soon be announced. Apparently, the person who will do the presentation for it next year is Duncan Head, of (amongst other things) Armies of the Macedonian and Punic Wars fame.
There is a flutter in my Macedonian and Punic Wars breast....
I am hoping that it will be Magnesia.
Elephants, scythed chariots, Antiochus the Great, phalangites, cataphracts; legions, a camp, Eumenes of Pergamum and - da-dum-dum-dum - Scipio's younger brother?
EDIT - as it turns out, the battle will be 2nd Mantinea, which is an excellent choice, especially as I have a swag of more Xyston Greeks to paint. This might be just what I need to get started on them!
