My friend and I continue our series of games using WRG 6th Ed and the associated Army List books. This time the Anglo-Danish faced off against the Tabascans, possible, but highly unlikely, pairing. The full run-down is here link

I truly miss those days of pouring over the thin little WRG book of army lists and then spending a week deciding which army to bring to the game and what it's composition was made up of.
Of course we never knew what the opposing side was bringing.
OH THE SHOCK whe I showed up with a viking force to face the dreaded Gaznavids????

Ah yes, the army lists. I used to think they were so useful to aid research into an army before the Web. The different troop types listed gave clues and enabled avenues of enquiry to be identified.
My armies were EIR and Sumerian. And I can sympathise with Russ; at a club competition my Sumerians faced Nikephorian byzantine!

All I had for that was Romans, so my choices were easy :)

Over here in 2010 era I was some guys playing 5th edition WRG out west.
6th edition or a variant of it was popular among tournament groups until recently.

I had a regular opponent with Carthaginians. I always enjoyed the EIR taking them on. They had better cavalry, I had better infantry so depended on who managed to best use their advantage. Must be at least 40 years ago <sigh>.

We try to play armies drawn from the same book. To further limit the imbalance we are experimenting with limiting ourselves to armies from the first or second half of the same book. We do try to avoid pitting Bronze-Age armies against those from the War of the Roses.
