Lessons Learned: Parthian infantry is too vulnerable, & should only be used if they can be planted in bad going, where their survival rate is improved. In both games, the infantry made up half of the Parthian losses. In game 1, we had an unusual situation where Light Horse in 2 ranks got a flee result in combat: the front rank Light Horse has to turn 180 according to the rules, then move straight back one tactical move. However, the second rank light horse prevented the fleeing horse from moving or interpenetrating. The result was death to the front rank light horse since it had no where to go. Unless we mis-interpreted the rules, this seems to be the correct result. Also as Parthians, Bob & I failed to really exploit the Parthian movement advantages; we have more to learn on how to use this army.
The Parthian Cataphract commander. Note that these Old Glory Parthians are mounted 3 to a stand instead of 4, as the figures are just too big to fit 4 across per the rules.
The victorious Roman Legions.
Hopefully by our next game, the camps & terrain will looked improved.
