Society of Ancients Battle Day 2012 – “We’re going to need a bigger goat”

Back at the end of March, I went to the Society of Ancients Battle Day in Bletchley, near Milton Keynes, UK.

The aim of the day was to re-fight the battle of Plataea (479 BC), using a variety of rulesets.

I’ve finally got around to captioning my photos of the day, so I thought I’d post them up for your perusal…

On the day, we re-fought the battle using Epic Commands & Colors: Ancients rules and 20mm plastic miniatures.

 

Other battles fought during the day…

 

I think one of the things that struck me about the day (apart from it being a lot of fun) is just how different many of the games look to each other, despite the fact that we are actually fighting the same battle.
