I only ask because we have a Punic War demo game at our local Hobby show, scheduled for the end of August.
The game will feature over 1000 figures, overwhelmingly HaT, using the Field of Glory rules.
We've played a number of smaller games in order to master the rules & as one of the Carthaginian commanders, I would say that the Romans, whilst not unbeatable, are a difficult opponent.
A bunch of tough Cartho spearmen (superior, armoured, drilled offensive spears) would be the equal of the Roman legionaries. I figure I could get a bunch painted in 3 weeks.
