Please see link for an AAR of a scenario from Miniature Wargames 371 based on Caesar's landing in Britain, using Neil Thomas' Ancient & Medieval Wargames rules and Baccus 6mm figures.

Great little game!! I like the tension as the Romans try to seize the beaches while the Brits try to hold them off while awaiting reinforcements! Thanks for showing us a potential future ancient's game, too!

Whirlwind, what size is the beach battlefield? What size are the unit bases? I'm thinking about 3mm figures (I already have 3mm ACW and am painting 3mm SYW.Thanks,
John

Hi Mumbasa,

The beach battlefield is a 48"x8" strip of roofing felt, with a sea bit, a sand bit and then a small bit of static grass and flock mixture to help it blend in to the base board, which is a 3'x2' board covered with a cut down Noch grass mat (can't remember if it is spring or summer mix).

The unit bases are the "Polemos-standard" 60mm x 30mm.
