Ancients



Back to HISTORICAL


The hobby of ancient wargaming - commonly known as "Ancients" - comprises two types of games:

  • land - The majority of Ancients gamers are involved with the contest of armies on land. Most rulesets cater to the "big battles," though a few allow for skirmish actions. Some gaming is strictly historical (that is, Romans vs. Celts, Romans vs. Carthaginians, etc.), while others play ahistorically (Romans vs. Chinese, Romans vs. Vikings) just so long as they get to push lead around the tabletop!
  • naval - Galleys! Naval Ancients is all about the clash of fleets on the open seas (well, maybe not that far at sea...), with drums beating and oars rising and rams parting the waters. (Naval elements also play a supporting role in some Land Ancients rulesets.)
