by Tony Bath and the Society of Ancients
Edited by John Curry
Tony Bath’s early inspiration was the
force that launched ancient wargaming. With his friend Donald
Featherstone, he pioneered the first table top ancient battles and the
most well-known of all wargaming campaigns, the Legend of Hyboria.In
1965, he founded the Society of Ancients and it's journal Slingshot.
This compilation of his work includes: The Peltast and Pila Ancient
Wargaming Rules The complete book, Setting up a Wargames Campaign The
Legend of Hyboria (including notes on the conclusion of that climactic
campaign). Setting up a Wargames Campaign is a complete guide to setting
up an ancient and medieval campaign and has chapters on: Map
movement,Contact, battles and after effects, Playing with umpires and
without, Supplies and replacements, Guidelines on running campaigns in
other periods. As Donald Featherstone said, 'a perfect little book' This
book has been produced in partnership with the Society of Ancients.
