My favourite period........and why.
I must admit my favourite period changes according to what I'm working on. At the moment it's Bronze Age/Biblical/Chariot Wars (call it what you will).
I like the period because of the history. It's about as Ancient as you can get. The pyramids. Mycenae & Troy. The Catastrophe that nearly wiped out civilisation.
Finding figures. No manufacturer makes everything so there's the joy of tracking down potential figures & of converting. I use several plastic manufacturers & three metal.
The rules we use (Field of Glory) are very tactical & you can gain much enjoyment from working out Cunning Plans to win (in my case, usually ending in failure & rout).
And chariots are just cool.
An earlier game. I plan to be better & bigger.
