Discussion: Again, the Persian cavalry won the day. The Athenian psiloi probably would have been better used to hold off or fight the Persians lights on the difficult hill while using the rest of the pips to counter the Persian cavalry and move their battle line forward together. The main Athenian battle line never made it past the center line of the battlefield and the Persian infantry remained un-engaged (which for them, was a good thing).
My fellow gamer & friend Bob Pavlik & I are enjoying these rules and playing these games. We are still learning the 3.0 version of DBA, and how to the armies play. There are probably some things we did wrong that we didn't catch; hopefully will be rectified in future games. 3.0 seems to be superior to previous versions of the DBA rules. It is also fun to resurrect/restore some old figures and armies and have them re-born as it were, under DBA 3.0.
