I’m frustrated with Google+ which is going away anyway but also frustrated with Blogger. I haven’t changed anything yet I cannot post my blog to Google+ in the usual way and the truth is I can’t post it at all since the screen goes white and just hangs there. As a result I have to […]
Some weeks ago I posted teaser for an upcoming game. The post featured my The Men Who Would Be Kings (TMWWBK) Egyptian Army. We use approximately a double list from the rules for our colonial games and I have a number of house rules that provide flavor. We finally got around to doing the game […]
Doing an ancient battle that featured an ambush is no easy task if you want the ambushed to have a fighting chance of victory. Historically, Hannibal pulled off an ambush of a Roman army near the River Trebbia in 218 BC. The Battle of Trebia was a resounding defeat for the Romans with only 10,000 […]
My plan is to play out the destruction of the Hicks disaster in the Sudan on September 30. The pictures below are roughly the initial set-up for the hapless Egyptians. The savage attack by forty thousand screaming dervishes had smashed into the Egyptian column in the forest of Shaykan, Kordofan Province, in the western Sudan, […]
This is the fourth game in the series in which I am adapting a Command and Colors Ancients (CCA)scenario to play with my modifications to DBA 1.0. The game was played on a 36″ by 36″ table. Converting the CCA game pieces to match elements in my DBA system was not exact but fairly close. […]
I’ve continued to adapt scenarios from the Command and Colors Ancients website to my version of DBA that I call DBA 1.0_BR (in 1\72nd scale). The original scenario was authored by a chap named Joe Bisio so I want to give credit where credit is do. I hope Mr. Bisio will forgive the liberties I […]
I’m continuing to experiment with a house rules version of DBA. My goal is to not radically change DBA 1.0 but to tweak it in small ways so I can do historical simulations to my satisfaction. I’ve been taking scenarios from Command and Colors Ancients and converting them into a DBA type game with my […]
De Bellis Antiquitatis is DBA followed by my friend Mike’s initials. He modified DBA 1.0 to make it his own so it serves as his house rules for the Greek Persian War in 1\72 scale. Below are the pics he took of the last game. The figures are excellent and are from Zvezda and Hat. […]
Experimenting with double element armies for DBA. That is all.
In no particular order a whole of pictures from my and my friend’s Sudan project… We simply got together and tried out my new camera lens and posed some shots of our figures.
