Preparing Egyptians and Hittites for To the Strongest   Leave a comment

It is 1274 BC. Rameses II of Egypt and Muwatalli II of the Hittite empire are fighting over control of Syria. This is the campaign that led to the famous battle of Kadesh.


In our apocryphal battle the two armies will face up near Kadesh but deployed for battle with equal forces. What if Rameses had been warned of the approach of the Hittites by his scouts and was ready for them?

One of the largest chariot battles in history shall take place at Kadesh near the banks of the Orontes River.

Each army will also have 3 hero counters.

The battle will be fought on a 6×4 table. Maybe my new gridded battle mat will arrive in time?

Edit: My new map arrived from Deep Cut Studios so all I need are an opponent!
