"Back in September, I heard the first whispers about a new Osprey Wargames title coming out next year – Men of Bronze by Eric Farrington. My fancy was immediately tickled, and I set out to try and find out a bit more about the forthcoming game. It is already available for pre-order (and has been pre-ordered) through Amazon and between there, the author's blog, and a Men of Bronze thread over at the Lead Adventures forum, I've managed to piece together a (still fragmentary) picture of what to expect.

It seems Eric has written a set of rules focused on the age of the hoplite – lets say 7th – late 4th centuries BC. By focusing on the, relatively, narrow time frame, he has hopefully captured the nuances of hoplite warfare which never really feature in more generic ancient rule sets. Furthermore, Eric has noted that he's been inspired by Dan Mersey's stable of rules (including Dux Bellorum, a favourite of mine), so that can't be a bad thing…."

New life for my old Ral Partha WRG Ancients Greek armies!
Well, maybe--I have a rather more figures than this seems to call for.

Oh, come now, Grelber! We all know that the first thing a wargamer does with a new set of rules is invite over friends and run a game at least twice as big as the rules are designed for.

(The second thing--once he's done that--is to complain that it plays slowly.)
