Field Of Glory: Ancients - Early Mycanean vs Hittite

Played game of FOGA at mine against Stephen as we were both keen to try Chariot type armies.
I fielded my Minioan/Early Mycaneans and Stephen used his Hittites.
So lots of Chariots on the table.
I had 16 Heavy Chariots armed with Light Spear and Hittites had 25 with a mix of Light Bow armed and Heavy Light Spear armed types.
My Spearmen are classed as Defensive Spear with supporting bow rank (after this game I would dispense with the support rank and field seperate Light Infantry with Bow and all Spear units).
Another fun game with quite a bit of terrain and lots of manouvering by us both.
However just as in the FOGR game we played last Sunday my dice rolling was diabolical !!
I passed only 2 Cohesion Tests all game !!  So with multiple disruptions my chaps were up against it and of course then succumbed pretty quickly (combats seem much more decisive in version 2 of FOG with penalties in tests more severe).
Really good to get these 'Biblical' type armies out again and another entertaining game despite yet another loss.


Pics have somewhat green hue due to poor lighting ?

I have only played DBMM once (I am a newbie to the miniatures scene) and it is quite involved. The other members of the club know it almost off by heart, but they have years over me.

DBMM and FOG are quite different. FOG is much easier to play and uses units. DBMM has much more depth and therefore complexity in terms of mechanisms and scope. DBMM has weather effects, Strategms and PIP dice 'inertia' system. FOG has none of these. Both have strengths and weaknesses but thankfully both use same toys :-)

Looks good. How do you find FOGA to play compared to DBMM?

BTW, my dice rolls recently have been awful too. Been playing a game using Shako 2 rules, and all I do is roll 1's or 2's. Needless to say the battle is not going very well....lol
