More of the battle Hebrew v Philistines




More shots of the defeat of the Philistines. A tough fought battle that ended in slaughter.
The battle opened with a dual between Goliath David. As in the biblical story Goliath on this occasion suffered a deadly sling shot between the eyes. Dice throws allowed the Philistines to pass all courage tests and continue the battle.
The Ark gave a +1 to courage like a general. Fighting on a small table and multi basing meant a lot of units were in range of King and the Ark giving +2 courage. However the Hebrews rolled high anyway. Probably the site of Goliath being killed by a boy was enough to convince the Hebrews divine intervention would win the day.
The chariots came in close and were shot up badly before they could do any harm to the Hebrews. The Hebrew forces were light spear ×2. Spearmen ×1. Ferocious warrior×1. Expert spear(King Saul). And 2 skimishers to represent the various Israelite tribes.

Hebrew skirmishes fire deadly volleys into the 2nd chariot squadron. Luck and support from another unit of light javelinmen slaughtered these conifdent  troops.

Hebrew v Philistine. Biblical Rampant Game

The Philistine chariots prepare to ride down some Hebrews. Underestimating their foe they retire from the field without striking a blow. The Hebrew light javelin tore through their ranks.
