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.

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!

Hi Keith. I like the way the site displays real names; this might help to keep some of the less desirable element away. Simon02/08/2014 at 13:31 #2773Henry HydeParticipant02/08/2014 at 13:38 #2775NTMParticipant
It can be changed which I have done simply so my username is the same on all forums02/08/2014 at 13:45 #2776
I guess we need some posts, now. I’ll make a proper one, later.02/08/2014 at 16:18 #2790

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.02/08/2014 at 16:40 #2792Henry HydeParticipant02/08/2014 at 16:43 #2793
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. 😉02/08/2014 at 20:06 #283402/08/2014 at 20:15 #283803/08/2014 at 00:42 #2883Temporary like AchillesParticipant

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.04/08/2014 at 09:26 #3127
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!06/08/2014 at 22:36 #3614
Logged in but can only reply on certain boards (like this one) – does anyone else have this problem or is it just me?????
Garry07/08/2014 at 21:08 #3762
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!07/08/2014 at 21:28 #376607/08/2014 at 22:52 #3770
Thanks Gary – did as you suggested and seems to work!
Garry07/08/2014 at 22:53 #377109/08/2014 at 08:39 #3890
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.27/05/2017 at 14:15 #63205Rob youngParticipant
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…

I’ve finally stumbled on this site. Nice to see Aaron and Simon here.
The avatar is from the SoA game The Saxon Shore is Burning. (the artist gave his permission ) The chap looks shifty eyed, I know, but it was that or one of these:
And yes, I suppose that is a punt for the game. Check here if you’re interested.
