Ancient texts

I obtained this volume recently-
It is the only wrg book of the time I never owned way back then. The copy is from an old school library and is complete with date stamp for borrowings around 1977. I like to think that it set feet upon the road to a life long hobby interest.

New old school gaming

Got the new old school lead out and  used them in  a game using  these rules-
I am going to tweak the rules but for a first outing they worked really well.
The "Greek" army,or rather part of it,arrayed...
The "Eastern Army" of the Great King arrayed on the opposite of the table, with some books in the background reminding me I have too many already but continue to buy.
More later /tomorrow hopefully with tweaks like increased/decreased strength points for certain units.

A visit from the Forbodian Ambassador has resulted in an influx of old school lead (mainly painted) for my ancient gaming. It is awaiting some basing,repairs and probably gloss varnishing before it can be used for games. Pics here soon when the camera lead shows up...
