I heard a rumor there is a version of Volley & Bayonets adapted for ancients.

Anyone heard of this or know where I can find a copy?

Is there an echo in here or is it just me?

As far as I know Frank Chadwick planned such a version but it was never finished.

Frank's most recent attempt at Ancients rules are called Epic Conquest. They're pretty rough yet, but I'll be running an Italian Wars version at Little Wars in the Spring.

I have thought about using VnB for ancients, but I have never sat down and worked it out. I think they are an engine that you can use for just about anything.

Frank did an earlier set of ancient rules called Chadwick Ancients IIRC. They were not related to volley and bayonet. Thee is a set of 30 years war rules for volley and bayonet and a ww2 version. Thee is a role playing game called Epic Conquest with anime style characters.

As 79thPA said. Give it a go with DBA bases taking no of figures as basic strength and morale shouldn't be too tricky to estimate. Going to have to try this now.
