It's a shame because its lack of figure removal actually suits using my 15mm DBx based Ancients (ignore the number of figures bit in HC and define large/standard/small units by the number of stands)
We were tying my usual "what if" situation of Han Chinese v Early Imperial Roman (based on the speculation that at one point in time the Roman and Chinese empires were only one day's march from each other)
However, I've just gone back to the rule book and realised a couple of things I'd misread. No I'm not saying what. Too embarrasing (I'd been doing shooting disorder as in BP!) But even correcting that wouldn't clear up some of our dissatisfaction around movement issues and H2H stats.
Just a coupe of game shots below. It gave me the opportunity to wheel out my Han Chines: an army which includes a lot of early Mike's Models 15mm. As you realise both my Roman and Chinese armies consist of a mix of manufacurers (and yes, we were using yellow dice for the Chinese)
Here a Mike's Models Chinese unit, backed up by an out of focus Essex unit, hits a Chariot (Magister Militum) Roman Unit supported by Essex Auxilliary archers
A Chariot (Magister Militum) Roman unit next to a unit of Corvus Belli Romans with Isaurus Axilliaries behind. The Roman General is one of a Freikorps set.
The Chinese line. Two Mike's Models units of spear and crossbow flanking an Essex unit. The guys with weapons in both hands are a mix of Mikes Models and Chariot
