I am starting to work up a circa 200BC Ancients Campaign for armies between Spain and Seleucia (inclusive). It is very much a work in progress but I would be keen to hear from interested potential participants. I envisage a fairly simple campaign format with a maximum of table top battles generated and a minimum of book keeping. The map will be Tony Barr's classic 'HWS Antiquity Campaign'. The idea would be to do the games at the LoA [tournament schedules permitting] and to do campaign orders between meetings.

The armies I plan to permit are as follows [RR = Rise of Rome, LT = Legions Triumphant, IF = Immortal Fire]:

Mid Republican Roman RR9 [probably 2 players]
Gallic RR18 [potentially 2 players]
Later Carthaginian RR26
Illyrians RR29
Spanish RR32
Later Macedonians RR35
Attalid Pergamene RR37
Numidian RR40
Later Seleucid RR43
Later Ptolemaic RR46
Early Armenian RR54
Parthian RR58
Bosporan RR66
Early German LT28 [potentially 2 players]
Thracians IF18
Kyrenean Greek IF23
Skythian IF30
Syracusan IF40
Early Sarmatian IF50
Galatian IF52
Hellenistic Greek IF55 [potentially 2 players]

This gives me about 24 players. Please let me know if you are interested and any preferences for Armies.

Cheers,
Mark

I'm very interested in playing a campaign.

However I have no ancients army to speak of, which leaves me with no current preference of nationality. So that said, I'm happy to get involved and build up an army which can fill in the nationality gaps left one we get more 'ancient army endowed' participants. Very Happy

No problem Scott, between myself and some of the other lead horders in the club we can kit you out with whatever you'll need by way of figures in the short term.

Cheers,

I'm interested in what you have in mind for a system. I've found the biggest problem for campaigns is what happens when a player is faced with multiple battles in a turn or doesn't show up for their games. The best solution being to have multiple players for each side.

Assuming it looks ok I can run Gauls, Carthos or Ptolemaics. Carthos by preference as I have most options covered for them.

Thanks Django. You're dead on the money as to problems caused by multiple battles. Accordingly, I am hoping to devise a system where that really cannot happen, but I know that few sets of rules ever survive contact with the enemy err I mean wargamers.....

Cheers,
Mark

Count me in as well! Campaigns are always good value as long as people make the commitment. My preferences would be Syracusan, Spanish, Hellenistic Greek (Spartan if possible) or Sarmatian.

I'd be very interested in this - although I too don't have an army to suit the period.

I could possibly be coerced into collecting a Sarmation army, especially if I was supplied with an interim army in the short term as incentive.

Cheers Wink

Good responses so far and so I am feeling somewhat enthused. We have Scott, Lyle, Tristan, Paul Garnham, Frosty, Jonathon, Stubbsy, Micheal George, Martin Morgan, Django and a couple of others [sorry opened the emails in Chambers and can't access them from home now].

The campaign rules are fairly well advanced. Anyone interested can see the campaign map at the Campaign Cartographer 3 website at

Search for Antiquity Europe
Search for Antiquity North Africa

More info to follow....

Cheers,
Mark

Can I change my preference? Rolling Eyes After further thought, I think I'd prefer to use (and collect) a Mid Republican Roman army... I already have Sarmations in 6mm (Warmaster Ancients), and don't particularly feel like painting another army of cavalry...

Cheers Wink

Charles, Django beat you to the 'bags it' draw for the Carthaginians. Are you happy to play either Spanish or Gallic? That would really help me 'balance' my world.....

Cheers,
Mark

I am really excited with the interest generated in less than a week. Well done all.

My provisional allocation of nations so far is:

Mid Republican Roman RR9 [2 players] [Martin Morgan & Tristan Powell]
Later Carthaginian RR26 [Django Upton]
Spanish RR32 [Charles Watson?]
Later Macedonians RR35 [Michael George]
Attalid Pergamene RR37 [Geoff Frost]
Numidian RR40 [Nick Wade]
Later Seleucid RR43 [Richard Stubbs]
Later Ptolemaic RR46 [Paul Garnham]
Early German LT28 [Jonathan Moore]
Kyrenean Greek IF23 [Damian Pooley]
Syracusan IF40 [Lyle Damond]
Galatian IF52 [Scott JP?]
Hellenistic Greek IF55 [Michael Gray]

If any of the above are desperately unhappy with my allocation, please let me know. I tried to be as fair as possible by allocating on a first come best dressed basis.

This leaves to be allocated:

Gallic RR18 [potentially 2 players]
Illyrians RR29
Early Armenian RR54
Parthian RR58
Bosporan RR66
Thracians IF18
Skythian IF30
Early Sarmatian IF50

I think all of these are interesting and potentially very handy armies, particularly against their direct historical foes. So please let me know if you are interested.

Cheers,
Mark

Happy to play Spanish or any thing else but only have a Cathargian army.

I am also happy to play one of the barbarians of the north (Gallic and/or Germans).
