All 4 reports now posted on my site at madaxeman.com

Including full blow-by-blow reports, army lists, loads of photos, and the highly anticipated return of Hannibal's much-missed post match analysis.

Thanks for the link Tim. I love reading AARs and perticularly liked the post game section. I read the first one but will go back after work this evening and read the rest

Thanks!!

Of course, if you are really grateful you can always make sure you do all your Amazon & eBay shopping by starting at the "search" boxes on the front page of my site :wink:

(or by adding some content - even just a link to another site - to any of myFoGepedia pages)

So.... Line 'em up an charge forward works with Cats + knights.... hmmm

Have you begun to invest in your own steam rollers yet? the Teuts wold do yeoman service dontcha think?

Biggest gem in the posts if one doens't have the rock, he'd better not try making scissors to the heavy lifting...

I find undrilled Foederati lancers just too hard to get them where you want. Having an IC helps, but since they are only armored, in period they will suffer with cats.

Terrain being what it is (highly flighty) my opponent has been lining up his HF armor Df/Sp + HA Kniggets with lH on the wings and move as quickly as possible to the other table edge. Shooting does next to nothing as large BGs make it near impossible to cause the necessary amount of hits especially so when shooting at armored foot.....

Best I've been able to do lately is tie till time is called. That is VERY frustrating..... Still, I'm still game in working out ways to better make it a game.

Thanks: Because of the huge interest from Hannibal fans I've now launched an unlimited edition "Nasty Hannibal" mug, with his heartwarming smile and the slogan "This coffee has about it the bitter taste of defeat".

So you can have the benefit of his presence at all times, even when your internet connection falls over :-)

How timely - it about 8 hours you'll be able to offer them to an American political party ... :twisted:

A Hannibal mug - Amazing, I'd buy one for a dollar.

How did you work out how to do that?

You clearly have too much time on your hands!

Great battle reports. Can I use the mug for hot chocolate (cocoa) instead? :D

sorry - its a purely virtual business*

* in the "sold via the web-only" sense, in the "manufacture is only done on-demand, and is totally outsourced to www.cafepress.com" sense and finally in the "I dont actually expect anyone to buy one, but getting it as a news item on TMP is great fun, isn't it?" sense as well :P .

Don't get me wrong - they are genuinely available for sale, its just that they are shipped, supplied and sold via cafepress (this link explains the business model, which is quite interesting in itself) and will cost you only the bargain price of about $20 including shipping to the UK (or roughly $1.50 cheaper to the US). Its just that I don't have a stock of them - they are produced by someone else, and made only as and when they are ordered. :wink:

Its amazing what mad stuff you can come up with via Cafepress - I'd recommend it to teams and clubs for t-shirts for example. Just to be more bizzare, I've also created a "Nsty Hannibal" Christmas Tree Ornament which can be yours for the bargain price of under $9 - so order the mug and the ornament and save on postage :twisted: :lol: :shock:

But you may get hit for inport duty on some stuff - I did with some t-shirts ordered from Cafepress.
