Yes, a lot of images and thumbnails have been lost. They are not recoverable. More notices likely in coming weeks.

This shit would make for the greatest wargame/gsg out there. Love how strong fortifications were during the time, how meaningful every little loss of man was, internal politics, class struggles, logistics, weather, seasons, diplomacy. Reading thukydides account ruined Imperator for me but also made me think of how i would tweak and adjust the mechanics to redo the game. The book also gives a great perspective on how difficult it is to maintain control over a land in a pre-digital society with pre-modern states, and what a revolution the roman army and state was.
Anyway, are there any games that do attempt to do justice to this conflict or ancient warfare in general?
