List of Characters:
Ramses: Great Lord of the World(Bill Low)
Muwutallis: Lord of the Hittite Empire(Matt Webster)
Merneptah: Great and Terrible General of Egypt(Ewan McNay)
Hector: Hero of Troy(Ed Kollmer)

Troy:
Hector swept his chariot into the main courtyard of the palace. As he quickly dismounted, the horse tender raced up, bowed, and said, “Sir, your father King Priam requests your presence.”
Hector bounded up the palace steps and slowed as he strolled into the reception room. He slowed further to a walk as he noticed Hittites conversing with his father the king.
“Ah! Hector, my son, come quickly. Muwutallis, king of the Hittites, our strong ally, requests our help against the arrogant Pharaoh Rameses. I have pledged our support. Will you lead our
Trojans in this grand alliance? Syrians and neighboring Anatolians as also joining the force?”
Hector looked from his father to the Hittites and knew that the Hittite King must be paying vast sums to bring such a force together.
“Indeed father, if you so will.”
“Assemble your force!”
And turning to the Hittites.
“Return to my brother king Muwutallis and report Troy will answer the call.”

Months later outside of Kadesh across the river:

Hector walked into King Muwutallis’s tent outside of the city of Kadesh across the river.
He spied around the assembled leaders of the Hittite force. Soon the curtain of the back tent was pushed aside and Muwutallis (Matt Webster) walked in. He surveyed the many faces.
“The first division of the Egyptian army is camped across the river. Ramses is with the second division along the road heading for the camp. The third division is behind that division and the last division is not yet visible on the road. We have surprise. I will lead the Hittite division. Cross the river and attack the camp. The Syrian division will cross the river also and mash the
second division. You, Hector, will lead the Anatolian and Trojan divisions. Attack the third division and hold back the last division as they come into view. Destroy the third division and prevent the fourth from joining the attack. Any questions.”
Silence reigned.
“To your divisions”
Suddenly, the tent emptied.
Hector jumped on his chariot, turned to Polyduras.
“You command the Anatolian division. Cover the far left of the field and keep the last Egyptian division from joining the attack.”
Polyduras nodded and raced off to join his division.

Hector approached his troops amid shouts and cheers. He spread out his units of spear and warriors. They crossed the river and moved on the surprised Egyptians.

Hector gazed at the panorama of the advance. To his right, he could see Muwutallis moving quickly on the Egyptian camp and the Syrian surprising the second Egyptian division. His own troops moving on the third division and finally Polyduras’s troops moving to catch the last division.
He kept his troops moving and engaged the libyian troops to his front. His light troops had to
Recall and his MI troops moved in and fought the libyians for the low hill. Slowly his MI were pushed back down the hill.
He maneuvered his chariots to attack their flank, unfortunately, they countered back and foiled his attack. Slowly, his Trojans were pushed back.
Suddenly, he saw the last Egyptian division appear. Polyduras could be seen moving forward and attacking them.
Suddenly a runner appeared at his side hanging on his chariot.
“Lord Polyduras reports his attack on the enemy. He has discovered that the great and terrible Egyptian general, Merneptah (Ewan McNay) is directing the attack.”
Soon he realizes that Polyduras is in trouble. Unfortunately, he sees that his own troops are falling back.
He looks to the right to see how Muwutallis is faring.
Unexpectedly, a runner approaches his chariot.
Breathlessly, he stammers.
“Lord Hector, Lord Muwutallis has captured the Egyptian camp and has pushed back Rameses almost capturing him.”
“Report back to his Lord, that we must break off. I see that Lord Polyduras has been routed and we are being overwhelmed. “
Hector raised his spear and signaled the withdrawal.

After plundering the camp, Muwutallis learned of Hector’s predicament. He saw Rameses chariot racing away and regrouping his forces. Slowly, he ordered the recall back to Kadesh.

Ramses turned and looked back and was surprised that the Hittites were not pursuing.
Simultaneously, a runner appeared.
“Lord, Master of the World, your great and terrible general, Merneptah approaches, destroying all before him. As a wildfire destroys a field, he marches.
Ramses smiles and calls for his panegyrist.

Days later, negotiations followed.

Interesting lists - I can now see why Bill likes the Egyptians so much, besides the chariots which I don't care for (2 horse) it is a very nice list, and has lots of potential.
I dont know that I have ever fought ill using this list, but I think it would struggle against knights and pike, but be good against most other things - just lacking a mobile strike force - with 4Horse charios it would be a very good list IMHO.
Hittites dont get me as excited, thanks for the right up - photos would be really nice too - not to be too demanding
