Big Battles

Big battles that recreate the decisive actions of history are great fun for people to join in with and use to learn new rules sets. They can also be a fantastic spectacle to watch or be a part of. And sometimes they even end up with results like their historical prototype! We've used big battles recently as a way to introduce people to the Field of Glory rules, emulating the battles of Magnesia - the great clash of the Roman Republic and the Seleucid empire - and Gaugamela - the Persian Empire's last stand against Alexander the Great. We've got some great plans for other big battles we'll be running soon, as well. So if you fancy your chances as Alexander or Caesar, come along and join in. Just remember there are no guarantees that historical results will repeat themselves on the wargames table!
