Having looked through the army lists of several rulesets I wonder if every single army in them actually finds wargamers willing to buy, paint, base and play them. Early Susiana and Elam anyone? I suspect that the conscientious historian takes over when a games designer starts drawing up the lists, inducing him to include every historically recorded state/tribe from every period regardless of whether players would ever want to use them or not.

So which armies from which periods do you actually play with?

I've taken these lists from the l'Art de la Guerre website, which seems to have the most comprehensive army lists of any ruleset. They organise their lists as follows:

Now, we don't play ADLG, so some of our armies are split across two or three of the official ADLG lists, but I think we could cover all those listed above. Some might also quibble that we play DBA, and most of the above are just single armies, not triple size (although some are triple or quadruple sized), but since we all love history, we absolutely love raising armies that we've just read about!

And we could also cobble together armies, like Commagene, or Mithridatic, or Early Crusaders, that have similiar troops as other armies, but I didn't include them. Just what we specifically raised and painted up.

Sorry about the format, TMP just mangles text and spacing

This is, as near as I can recall, what we played and when.

Rules changed which armies were used.
New Armies Lists changed which armies were used.
Greater figure types availability changed with new lists
15mm made a Huge number of armies available and DBM changed everything

Before DBM player groups were small (in my experience)
We had 2 Cons a year and people came from 200 miles away. Brought their sleeping bags and camped out in locals homes, split hotel rooms 4 to a room

And, of course, the type written letters to Phil Barker to try to make sense of the rules. I started asking a question twice, in parts of the letter and would routinely get 2 different answers.

I started asking a question twice, in parts of the letter and would routinely get 2 different answers.

Ha! Doesn't surprise me! He never admitted to making mistakes either. I recall asking a couple of questions where it seemed the rules were written wrong and was told that "that was the way it was written, so it was correct". (No LOS restrictions for artillery is one I recall) And then in the next edition the rule in question would be corrected.

But back to the OP, it certainly seems like we ancients gamers like our obscure armies! Shouldn't be too surprising, as I think one can find figures for just about all the armies you've listed. If you sculpt it, we will buy it!

evilgong10 Dec 2017 2:57 p.m. PST

When DBm was in its pomp, players would look for armies that had never been used in a comp and be the first to try it.

Being a crap army didn't stop players, it was the unavailability of obscure nation figs that stopped an army being played.

Sumer and Akad went through a little boom a couple of years ago.

I have amassed quite a pile of various Bronze Age types.

Rome and Carthage

Blemye

Brits, Picts, Saxons, Vikings, etc.

platypus01au10 Dec 2017 9:49 p.m. PST

Hi,

I own, all DBMM armies, all in 15mm, all painted;

10 Old and Middle Kingdom Egyptian
128 Nikephorian Byzantine
150 Viking and Leidang
210 Samurai
220 Swiss
224 Condottieri
236 Wars of the Roses
261 Indonesian and Malay
277 Tupi

Most of these get an outing at least once a year.

I have more DBA sized armies, and still more as unpainted lead in the lead mountain.

Cheers,
JohnG

Ah, the infamous "Letter from Phil".
Thursday night rules seminars handing out the latest amendment sheet.
"I'm sorry if this contradicts your Letter, but these are what we're going by!"
"But my Letter has a later postmark!"

jefritrout11 Dec 2017 7:58 a.m. PST

Personally 31, but within my group over 150 of them easily, maybe closer to 200.

Example for Ancient I have…
A small New Kingdom Egyptian
Ancient Hebrew
Philistine

but have fought against
Kassite Babylonian
Neo-Babylonian
Assyrian
Neo Assyrian
New Kingdom Egyptian
Libyan Egyptian
Sea People
Mycenaean

For the last section which seems that folks only have Inca and Aztec, I have
Inca, Mapuche, Tupi, and Chinantec painted and 2 more bought ready to be painted. (I also have the New World Spanish and Colonial Portuguese ready to fight them.)

Am in the process of finishing up figures for a couple of those armies so that they don't need to borrow from a contemporary to be able to take the field.

BRB, that is a truly AMAZING Numidian army. You must be very proud of it, and deservedly so!! I wish I lived the in the UK. I think I have enough PW-era Republican Romans to put up against them.

Maybe I missed the elephants. Are you getting any of Victrix's new ones with the Numidian transfers?

And since I'm here, not the shear number of armies, but each is at least 300-400 infantry:

New Dacian/Sarmatian army, just finsished!
Imperial Romani
Republican Romans of the Polybian era (though I'm making the Camillan era, even despite my previous post)

Half my Pyrrhic army done (all cav and tons of light troops)
Caesarean army to go, after Victix puts out its Celtic Cav
