IntroductionIn 700 BC, the Assyrians under King Sennacherib were laying siege to the Hebrew town of Heshbon. As well as 2 armies of their own, the attackers were supported by a large contingent of Midianite Arabs. However, the Hebrew King Hezekiah had gathered 2 armies of his own, plus a force of Kushite Egyptians. These marched to defend the town; battle seemed inevitable.
This is a fictional encounter to give justification to a game of DBA that I hosted this week at the Helensburgh Games Club. The town, the armies involved and the named personalities did all exist in the same region and in the same time period. However, the notion that they all came together for this particular fight is hypothetical.
We had 6 DBA armies (12 elements each) and a total of 8 players! Models are from my ageing 15mm collection.
