Rich Gause presenting me with the “Horrible Hordes” plaque.

Armies had to have at least one Horde element to be elligible. In addition, you would be able to reduce the aggression of your army by one for each horde elements in excess of one that was taken. Each kill made by a horde would also give you extra victory points.
Tony Aguilar won 3-0 with the Song Chinese.

Battle of Heraclea BBDBA Game
Run by Don Harting.

Some of the Roman commanders(L to R Kevin Mello and Devin Gause)
The Pyrrhic army (Tony Aguilar/Edgar Pabon/Jamie Peterson) defeated the Romans (Marty Schmidt/Devin Gause/Kevin Mello)

The Romans crossed the river in three places. On the left flank of Pyrrhus, the Romans concentrated their cavalry to try and envelop the left flank of the Greeks. They were met by two elephants who broke that command. On the far right, the Greeks held off the Romans long enough to break another command by killing its leader.
