    As L’Art de la Guerre continues it’s inexorable advance in popularity right across the world (it’s set to be the biggest competition at the upcoming “The Worlds” in Belgium later this month, with almost 50% more players, drawn from more countries than any other ruleset on offer there), the opportunity to take part in an overseas holiday,erm competition was inevitably going to come around sooner rather than later – and where better do do so than the home of the rules, France, and an event held in one of the most amazing wargaming spaces imaginable – the French Tank Museum in Saumur in the stunning Loire Valley.

    I had chosen to take an Early Achaemenid Persian army, mainly on the rationale that I had a lot of Sparabara figures that hadn’t seen light of day in years as well as some new cavalry from Xyston (very nice) and Forged in Battle (not quite as impressive). The competition mandated an allied contingent too, which for the Persians was an armoured hoplite Greek command.

    After a “fantastique” drive down to Saumur (after getting around the brain-bender of crossing the channel and going into Europe the day after the Brexit vote..) the competition est arrive, giving me 5 games in which to see if my ADLG knowledge and skills stood up to the test of playing against French experts, in French.

    The end result was plenty of good learning experiences as various French players gave my army some stiff lessons about new and different ways to play (yes, barbarian armies are more than viable in ADLG!), and the even more surprising appearance of the use of “tactics” and “maneuver” by my forces as we battled to hang on in there and not get crushed underfoot

    See for yourself how the Persians did in these “incroyable” 5 fully-featured battle reports …

    Excellent!

    Although when I saw the words ‘tank museum’ on the ancients forum I was a bit confused…
