|Charles Grant's army (naturally, controlled by Stuart) took on the role of the Hyperboreans on the left of the photo.
My own troops formed the army of Hyrkania. No chariots were available to Stuart, but I managed to field 3 elephants.

|Battle commences - light troops skirmish west of the river. Greenwood & Ball metal takes on Victrix plastic!
|The master at work. The game showed that different basing between armies didn't really affect how the rules played.
|The larger size of the modern figures certainly shows in this photo - but our enjoyment was not affected. The Victrix Numidians were easily seen off by the Hyperborean heavy cavalry.
|Heavy cavalry. Stuart has resisted the temptation to straighten some of the spears for fear of breakages.
|My personal favourite - a unit of Persian Immortals.
|Hoplites and Macedonian phalanx.
|Archers led by a more modern (and hence bulkier) officer figure.
|More hoplites with some peltasts on the right.
|This and the photo below give you an idea of the 'Grantian' cavalry painting style.
