Muswell Militia and friends will be running what we hope is the largest ever Command and Colors (Ancients) miniatures game twice over the next month. The battle we are refighting is
Zama and will involve 1500+ miniatures, deployed in roughly 120 units, on a 4.8 metre long table. The scenario somewhat resembles the C&C Epic Zama scenarios, but is rather bigger. We’ve extensively play-tested it and it should be a pretty even game; it will take around 5 hours to play, including breaks. There’s a good deal about it elsewhere on my blog: http://bigredbat.blogspot.com/search/label/Operation%20Zama
Up to four generals are needed for each side, for each refight, and we are looking for additional players to general on both sides on both days. It would be helpful if these have prior experience of playing the C&C(A) boardgame, whose rules we are using. However, C&C is a very accessible system, and we can teach the basics to a wargamer in 20 minutes or so. We’ll also have someone on hand to offer advice...
The first outing will be at the Society of Ancients Battle Day, in Bletchley, on 17th April; here’s a link to their page: http://www.soa.org.uk/battleday/
The second will be at Salute on 24th April, at the Excel Centre in Docklands: http://www.salute.co.uk/
If you are available and would like to play in either game, drop me a line at simon dot miller at lineone dot net, and we’ll see if we can fit you in… they should be memorable games!
