I had an opportunity to play L'Art de la Guerre in 25mm at the club tonight so was happy to give them a go. I had been told that they are very much a derivative set and so it proved - nothing new and exciting in them but potentially a solid game that might prove worthy of further play.
The game was 3 v 3 and moved a little slowly. I held the centre of the Cartheginian line with my veteran Africans and Gallic support. The approaching Seleucid phalanx had slightly better combat values so the idea was to let them move between the two bits of terrain with them hopefully exposing their flanks to a double envelopment. Howver as the night wore on it became clear that if I wanted to throw any dice I would also have to advance. The resulting clash was indecisive if marginally against me and the overall game was declared a draw.
I would play again and I could provide 25mm armies to do so. The issue is lack of availability of the rules.at the moment as they are currently out of print whilst remaining much sought after
