    I don’t think the differences between the various groups would always be as clear cut, especially in border regions, where a mix of styles may be likely. Look at Celtiberians for example, a mix of Spanish & Celtic dress, equipment and tactics. You may justify him as a mercenary commander, or a Gaul that had fought with the Germanic tribes. I believe the German tribes were described, at least once, as trans-Danubian Celts.

    Hi

     

    I am waiting on a copy of WFB 3rd edition and the armies book in the post. I played it when I was a teenager and gave up on it and sold everything off. I have a hankering for fun games ( mad goblin fanatics etc) and in a fit of nostalgia ordered the rules. I have dragged my old dark elf army from the attic and will start to gather an Orc & Goblin force soon.  Most will probably be from Mantic rather than GW, although I will try to scratch build a pump wagon during the week

    Hi

    I have played a lot of ancients rules over the years, but we use Basic Impetus now. We find it an excellent system, and has the advantage of being free, so it would be easy to give it a go.  There are many army lists available online for free also.

    The rules are only a few pages long, but you get alot of game for very few rules. We would only check the rulebook very rarely.

    They feel right and give believable results, the game is quite quick so we normally get in two games per evening ( we swap armies for the second game).  The armies are quite small and can be played using WRG basing sizes.
