Sunday February 8

Our first meeting of the year was very much a "DBx" day. Craig brought along two of his Marlburian armies, and he and Warren played a game of Horse, Foot and Guns. Vince and Andrew brought along Early Achaemenid Persians, Athenians, Early Imperial Romans and Parthians, and several people played five games of DBA.

"DBx" is the name used for a game system developed by the Wargames Research Group. It is used for various sets of rules for Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, and horse and musket rules. Horse, Foot and Guns are the horse and musket rules, while DBA (De Bellis Antiquitatis version3.0) are quick play rules with army lists for ancient and medieval battles. Andraw is finishing his 25mm Persians, while Jonathan (Vikings) Harley (Sub-Roman British), Ceilidh (Early Byzantine), and James (ancient Spanish) are assembling 15mm armies.

We are likely to see more DBA at the next meeting and also possibly Wings of War, multi-player boardgames and more. Remember, all periods, all rules, all scales are welcome. See you there :-)
