My weekly column for brings me back to the tabletop with pewter with a review of ADLG 3d Ed. Really enjoyed this set of rules, a very refreshing change from what I am used to playing (mostly WRG 6th). Here is the link:

We've had a lot of fun with it over the past year and a half as well.

Good review though obviously they have missed the DBX revolution which created the concepts upon which ADLG is based.

They had replaced the old WRG1-7 methods. FOG was a bit of a throwback to WRG methods combined with a bit of Warhammer. ADLG has reinvented the DBX revolution.

WRG 5th and 6th? Those were the days! Great review and I'll have to look into these rules now.

If you think WRG 6 is bad, the Late Roman Army I mentioned was Mike's Models.

BTW, I was aware of the DBX connection, but these articles are supposed to be only two pages long (my editor lets me get away with 2 1/2 . . . sometimes), so I have to pick and choose what I write. In this case I felt other aspects more important, but the relationship is noted, and I can sure see why ADLG is so popular. And yes, the relationship of FOG to WRG Prime rules was evident as well.

I don't play Ancients much anymore, tho I do have 4 + armies still in the bags ready to paint. If I do, my choice will be ADLG on the table, and FOG 2 on the computer.

Ciao, Colonel Bill
