I have been chronologically replaying the battles from Peter Sides ancient scenario books to playtest my own rules that use a 2'x2' board. This is game 32 The battle of Tunis. The full battle report is on my blog:


I last played a battle from these scenario books with my own rules Ancient Battlelines Clash over two years ago. It had some minor issues that had been niggling at me but not sure how to resolve them. Over 2017 I wrote and played with some rules more linked to Bill Banks Ancients. I thought a mashup of those rules and Ancient Battlelines Clash would be the way forwards. I played a game in December 2017 but realised it was not to be. For the last year I have been renovating a house (still not quite finished) and quietly working on a new version of Ancient Battlelines Clash with some minor changes (that did come from the mashup ruleset) to resolve my issues with them. This is my first game with the revised rules and it went well. I am hoping to get more games played in 2019. In 2019 I have already played more games with Ancient Battlelines Clash (1) than in 2017 and 2018 combined (zero)!
