I recently bought up nine Greek figures from Bronze Age Miniatures (they are fantastic, and the delivery was extremely quick) and now I'm busting a gut to play with them. Since I don't have any other miniatures, I thought maybe a small skirmish game would work best. Are there any rules for Ancients skirmishing that would work well with Greeks?

Here is a link to a game using De Bellis Velitum a free, online game of ancient skirmishing:


David gives a run down of a game using these rules.

Ganesha Games fantasy ruleset Song of Blade and Heroes might work.
If you're expanding your collection they have an ancients set due this year and a Greek myth set planned as well:

We have a bunch of Greek army lists. And our game plays LIKE a skirmish game (individual based, each base being a "company" of 30 to 100 men, depending on frontage used from 15mm to 30mm). You can just call each figure on its base one man, or as many as you want depending on the scenario….
