A second instalment of my Troops on Parade feature, reviewing some of my figure collections.
This time it’s a chance to see Alexanders Giant Phalanx (ohhh…Matron), you don’t get that opportunity every day !
Hardly ever gamed with as I have never found a set of rules for Ancients, most sets are designed for competition or points based games or in other words everything I hate, didn’t take to Hail Salad either.
Lots more pics and info on’t blog.

Very nice. Beautiful armies Macedonians.
As to rules, have you tried ‘Lost Battles’ by Phil Sabin? I’ve got a similar aversion to ‘generic’ ancients rules, and Lost Battles are my rules of choice for Classical ancients.

That is indeed a very nice looking collection. You know what the solution to the rules issue is, don’t you? Write your own. I’m not much of a competition player either so I’ve been looking a lot at the Command and Colors website (https://www.commandsandcolors.net/ancients/maps.html) for historic scenario ideas with the intention of running them in Impetus (or Basic Impetus). Probably solo. That site is a gold mine!

I hadn’t heard of the Lost Battles rules before yesterday so I will have to check them out.
As to writing my own, I am halfway their, time being the issue, when retirement comes in 9 years maybe.
