Hello everyone!

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for rules with sufficient Bronze and early Iron age flavor. In particular, ones that have maybe around 60-100 miniatures per side. I was originally thinking of using Men of Bronze by Osprey, but I imagine there's a better option.

I have the same problem. I have looked at Chariot Rampant, and the Hail Caesar Bronze Age supplement looks promising. Mortal Gods is also worth a look

Chariot Rampant works really well

I would think Clash of Spears would work well.

Is there a link to Chariot rampant? My understanding is that it's just informal changes to Lion Rampant.

Yes I've been looking too. Decided to simplify and adjust the excellent Lion Rampant rules. Did give a lot of thought to adapting the "One page rules Age of fantasy"

Looks like Chariot Rampant is what I'm looking for. Thanks!

@Deucey From what I understand, Chariot Rampant is a custom version of LR that was featured in WS&S Issue 82. Thankfully you can still get the back order in paper.

Chariot Rampant is great for fun simple games allowing chariot era battles without mass chariots and costs. Space too
