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.

2018 WMA/WMM Tournament


Hittites Emerge Victorious Once Again!

Another year and another WMA/WMM tournament. This year we had four players and featured Samurai for the first time, Hittites, Tetonic Knights, and Imperial Romans as the armies for the tournament. Each player is allowed 750 points, a free general, and units from three teritories, which basically rounds out to just over 1000 points each and break points usually around 7-8 units. We've found that this allows us to get in 3 games in 4-5 hours, which is pretty good and works great for a tournament setting. We had two tables set up with standard terrain, then rolled for which side of the table, game length, and who sets up/goes first. Surprisingly, we were able to get in all three rounds in a little over 3 1/2 hours! Once again the Hittites emerged as champion, which is something like 3 of the last 4 tournaments. It's even more incredbile when you figure they are the less armored of any of the other armies, have fewer special rules, and basically just try to swamp you in cheap units, which works! Most of the games were close run affairs with a few of them going down to the last turn. As usual, everyone had a great time and we look forward to doing this again hopefully soon.
