    Many thanks to Mike and Sam for setting up these new forums.

    By way of introduction, I have been wargaming Ancients since 1979. During that time, I have played some 20 different Ancients rule sets, enjoying some more than others. Since 2011, my rulebook of choice has been Hail Caesar, although I also enjoy reading battle reports by players using almost any set of Ancients rules.

    Cheers,

    Scott

    Apologies for the ‘Anonymous’ name in my post above – I had to ask Mike delete my original account and then set up a new one. At least all of the information is correct!

    Cheers,

    Scott

    Hi Keith.  I like the way the site displays real names; this might help to keep some of the less desirable element away.  Simon

    Hi there Simon, nice to see you here. Yes, I’m all in favour of real names! I too wish this new site every success.

    It can be changed which I have done simply so my username is the same on all forums

    Hi Henry!

    I guess we need some posts, now.  I’ll make a proper one, later.

    Yes, you can go into your profile and select what name is shown on the forum.
    No need to use your real name if you do not wish too.

    Personally Mike, I think that’s a shame. Real names encourage better behaviour.

    The only issues I guess is that people can put in any name when you register, I could for example change this to show Henry Hyde as my name rather than Editor Mike..
    As with much we rely on the good nature and honesty of others.

    Some people will have want anonymity for good reasons, but it will be nice to see real names where possible.

    Anyhow, I am thinking about changing my “handle” to Tango01.  😉

    Just heard about the new site. To be honest in 30 years  I’ve spent more time painting,changing scale and collecting rules than playing.

    I must have a copy of almost every set, Simon I got as far as marking grids at the start of the year for To The Strongest but I’m nearly at

    the stage I can’t possibly get sidetracked painting any more troops so I promise by the end of the year they will be played.

    After trying every scale I’ve now settled on 2mm on 60mm wide bases at a figure ratio of 1:2 or 1:4.

    Grand plans are Celts in Greece,Spain,Gaul etc. Well everywhere really using RRTK and the expanded campaign RRTKV by Mike Sagliano.

    I’m a solo player so I’ll mostly be looking ideas and parts of history I’m unfamiliar with from others here.

     

    Think that’s enough from me for now.

    I am returning to this hobby after a 20 year hiatus. A lot has changed in my absence! Looking forward to interacting with like minded hobbyists on the new forum. Good luck with the site!

    Hi Garry, this happened to me also. Refresh the page and you may be able to post.
    A link to the forums at the top of the homepage would be handy!

    Thanks for pointing out the links Mike. On the mobile version they are way down the bottom (at least on my phone). I’ll just bookmark the forum, it’s no problem.

    As a new member with a definite Ancients bias, let me introduce myself. Rob Young, Garrison Miniatures (which I retired in 2014). Main interests Greeks, Persians, Macedonians/Successors, Egyptians, Assyrians. Old School, as in Garrison 20mm, Minifigs ‘S’ Range and early PB. Feel free to ask any questions about Garrison! Blog The Eastern Garrison, https://easterngarrison.blogspot.co.uk/ , based on the fact that the Northern Garrison used to exist so, I live in the East – Eastern Garrison. Hope you find something of interest there…

    Regards

    Rob
