A couple of week go the club visited the wargames show put on by Milton Keynes club – Campaign)

We took a different type of game this year opting to adapt the command and colours board game to a larger board and to use 15 mm figures. The game is unusual in that there are 4 players a side an overall general and left centre and right flank sub generals.

Paraitacene is a battle that occurred in the wars of the successors after Alexander the great died. between Antigonus (one eye) and Eumenes. It was fought in 317 BC.
