Rod Cain dropped by Bastion Gaming Center with a demo game of the Battle of Nicaea using the TRIUMPH! rules. Jolly good fun it was, I promptly bought a copy. A description of the game and more pictures here link

Pretty armies, and I really enjoyed the account of the battle!

BigRedBat, Rod really knows how to put on a show; his Senlac Hill for the Battle of Hastings game is almost 20" tall and REALLY looks the part. Instantly recognizable across a convention hall. the rules are fast and fun as well.

Triumph! I've found to be a lovely, clever Ruleset for the simulation of Ancient battle. It has, for me, filled the gap between the larger, but as I get older, unwieldy, DBM and the smaller 'chesslike' DBA. Thanks Rod, David et al, for all your efforts in bringing this set to the fore.

@Anton Ryzbak alias JT… thanks for posting. I played Triumph! once with Rod and a gang from MI, and recently played a few games with his friend, Triumph! supporter, and owner of Thistle & Rose Mins, now including the 28mm Vendel range of mins, B. Hupp. Have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed the rules, the games, and the fact they always use very nice armies. Mind you, I have been a wargamer for 50 years and intentionally avoided ancients gaming; they may actually change my mind in this regard (except adding-in an ancients component will endanger completion of other long-term ongoing projects).
