"There have been a lot of tweets recently, wargame based, dealing with ancient history and ancient wargaming. Most (if not all) have been Eurocentric. I can understand this as the largest market for wargame figures and for the consumption of Ancient History, have been Europeans be they in Europe, the UK, the US and Canada, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand.

The wargame figures and related publications cover Europe, and the Middle East across to India (think Alexander the Great). Even Central and South America gets a look in with Aztec, Maya and Inca, although I suspect that is mainly because Aztec and Inca were conquered at the time by European freebooters…"

I do not follow or participate in the practice of tweeting.
I have written articles on Ancient, pre-1600, history in Far East and South-east Asia for magazines and worked on FoG army lists in those regions for Slitherine.
Ancient Asian history is fantastic. Combined with the better known Chinese, Japanese and Mongol military history of the era, you can spend many hours f research.
