If you are trying to get a group of people interested where would you send them? Something that would show different rules and figure manufacturers

For rules and how they play,it's hard to beat Shaun's blog.

He's re-fought the same couple of battles using just about every Ancient rule book available.

For rule set descriptions and reviews, I would recommend BoardGameGeek.com.
Here are some of the most popular Ancients rule sets not included on either Tim's (madaxeman) or Shaun's sites:

Commands & Colors: Ancients (link)
Hail Caesar (‌link)
Mortem et Gloriam (link)
Swordpoint (link)
Sword & Spear (link)
To the Strongest! (link)

I guess it also depends how much experience with gaming they have, their age(s) and their interest levels.

I would actually point them to the Ancients forums in TMP. That would give them an idea about ancient wargaming.

@kodiakblair – thanks for the shout out. I do still have a list of 20-30 rulesets I would like to try. 2020 seems to be shaping up as the year to get back into playing with some of them (alas not 2019).
