Augustus Back to Hannibal? Yes? No? Maybe?

Phil or anyone?,
Several years ago Phil mentioned possible variations or something for The Punic Wars.
Anyone know and how to locate same?

Hi Bill,

I don’t think we ended up doing a lot of development work on a Punic Wars variation though I remember playing a test game (and losing with the Romans). Personally I think it’s doable but needs some work on how a maniplular legion works compared to the cohort based version (I think they need to feel different to use) and some work on how a legion/phalanx clash works. Having loads of tiny Roman maniples would be nice but I don’t think that’s the best way of modelling them under the rules if you don’t want them to be steamrollered by a phalanx.

Cheers
Richard
