Ancients Volume 3

CAESAR IN GAUL
We set the scene for Caesar’s conquest of Gaul with background information, wargaming ideas and a painting guide for the great man himself.

SLAUGHTER ON THE SELLE
In 57 BC Caesar’s forces clashed with the Gallic Nervii tribe which burst out of the woods and across a river to attack the legionaries in their marching camp. An action packed, evenly matched scenario.

THE BATTLE OF SABIS AT HUZZAH!
The tale of the Maine Historical Wargamers Association’s preparation of their Battle of Sabis game for this year’s Huzzah! show.

GETTING PAINT ON YOUR GAULS
A complete guide to making sure your Gallic warriors look suitably impressive on the tabletop.

GALLIC GUERILLA GAMBIT
Turning to some of the smaller scale actions of Caesar’s campaign, we present  two Warhammer Ancient Battles scenarios.

ALESIA!
The culmination of Caesar’s campaign against Vercingetorix and the Gauls. Including the historical background to the siege and scenarios for recreating the action in miniature.

FALL OF THE FOURTEENTH
The “typical” image of a wargame might be a group of friends gathered around a table, beers in hand. Sometimes all you have are the figures, table, and beers. Chris Hahn provides us with a “solo wargamer” take on the loss of a Roman legion.

THE INVASION OF MONA, 60 AD
Wargaming generalissimo, and prolific tea drinker, Rick Priestley chose a classic encounter between the Romans and the Ancient Britons for his ‘Last Stand’ – the Invasion of Mona, AKA Anglesey in Wales. We had some great looking figures on a great looking table, and a very interesting result!

BOUDICA’S FINAL BATTLE
Our current UK Editor and our former owner joined author Rick Priestley (and a few other notables) for a massive game of Hail Caesar, the latest ruleset to roll out the door from Warlord Games.
