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
