Warmaster Ancients

Based off of the popular Warmaster Fantasy rules, this version adds most armies from the Classica, Dark Ages, and Medieval periods. Each unit consists of three stands with a simple, but every effective command and control system that creates a unique level of chaos. Each army is led by a general and several leaders, plus a set number of units that must be in the army, leaving the remaining points up to the players to choose their forces. We use 10mm figures by Old Glory, Magistar Militum, Minifigs, and Kallistra. We find that WMA and WMM are fast playing, a lot of fun, and is certainly suitable for large groups where we occasionally use up to 2500 points per side. We currently have around a dozen armies and are looking to paint more.

WMA: Destruction of the Seleucids


Roman Steamroller Does its Work

While we've certainly had several large Roman vs. Seleucid battles in the past, they are usually pretty close run affairs that are often decided in the last turn or so. Not so much this time! both sides got off to a flying start and it looked like it would be an early night as each army moved quickly to the center of the battlefield. That's when half of the Selecuid army decided to go on strike, rolling poorly for command and melee at the worst times possible. Before you knew it the Romans were in control of the center of the board and the Seleucids were trying to play catch up as they were losing units too quickly. In fact, it was the first time that we had seen elephants not even score a hit and obliterated in just two combats. To make matters worse, the fearsome Guard and Hypaspists failed to make headway against Roman archers, which was not a good sign! In the end the Romans crushed everything in their path and the Seleucids had their worst WMA night ever. The only good thing was that everyone liked my new Cigar Box desert mat!
