Greetings,

This is not an advert/promotion for next year's event at Sycamore Hall.

It is the start of a possible discussion thread about how to recreate the armies of Antigonus and Euemenes using the TTS! system.

I'e sketched some notes and here is what I have so far:

The left wing under Eudamus -

1 small unit of heavy cavalry (veterans) to represent his squadron

1 deep unit of heavy cavalry to represent Stasander's regiment

2 regular units of medium cavalry to represent the formations of Amphimachus and Cephalon

2 regular units of light cavalry to represent the Thracians and their friends (Paropanisadae [sp?])

3 units of escorted elephants to represent the 45 animals

propaby 2 or 4 more units of light infantry with slings and bows to represent the additional skirmishers

Again, this is

Both armies would have a left, center, and a right. I am thinking about wing commanders in addition to the overall army general. I don't think I would use/place camps.

I am wondering about how many decks of cards/chits to use though. I wonder if 1 per side would be sufficient?

The goal is to fit this battle on a 6 by 4-table. As of this morning, I am looking at grid squares with sides measuring 3 inches (approximately 7.6 centimeters).

Thoughts?

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks very much!

Chris
