Wargaming in Auckland New Zealand since 1974!

Ancient to Medieval

Everything relating to the Dawn of History (i.e. the Sumerians & similar from about 3200BC) through all the classic eras of the ‘Biblical’ period, the Greeks, Romans, Dark Ages, Rise of Islam & the Crusades, to the late Medieval Period (100 Years War through the War of the Roses) finishing around 1470 to 1490AD at the dawn of The Renaissance.

Romans (both Early & Late Imperial and Hun Allies) and Seleucid & Alexandrian Macedonians with Scythians, Galatians, and more, from the collections of Nick Buckby, Glen Tibbles, & John Moher – these photos are from a large DBM ‘Mega Game’ (about 650 AP) in November 2001 that also involved Auckland Wargamers Philip Abela; Gerard Lelieveld; and Greg Simmonds:

I’ve finally got my act together and written up the DBMM240 conditions for the 6 December 2009 tournament. Please have a read and get back to me with any (sensible) questions. It should all be straightforward as I’ve simply tried to tabulate the important variations into one document, trying to reconcile any inconsistencies in the process. The major exceptions are Baggage and Terrain.

Early (Ancient) Germans.One of the big challenges facing the club today is the debate in Ancients Gaming between DBMM and FOG. As in many other clubs and wargaming groups around the world at present there is a split between gamers who prefer FOG and those who prefer DBMM – luckily the AWC at least has no odd Ostriches still sticking to DBM (of course there is nothing really wrong with that if its your thing, but its a position causing a 3 way rules-set split of gamers in some areas so doesn’t help unify the scene)!

Ghengis Khan: Wolf Of The PlainsI made mention recently of Conn Iggulden’s “Genghis” trilogy (Wolf of the Plains, Lords of the Bow, Bones of the Hills) in a recent club discussion about the movie “Mongol”. I’ve also recently read a few books by Stephen Pressfield. One is “Gates of Fire“, a retelling of Thermopylae in 480BC, which I grabbed from the library having listened to an audio lecture series given by Garret Fagan in which he referred to this book as being quite evocative in exploring the nature of hoplite warfare…
