I don’t know about cultural bias in wargaming, but what I see (at least as far as Ancients is concerned) are the echoes of the received wisdom handed down by Phil Barker and WRG – the proverbial giant upon who shoulders many dwarfs have stood. Writing rules is easy, writing historical army lists is hard, a short cut around establishing a knowledge base is to use someone else’s lists. Take Impetus for example, some of their lists are, unit for unit, direct copies of lists that can be found in the DBx series of rules. So maybe not so much a cultural thing perhaps more a case of plagiarism?
