Steve Bidwell and I dusted off some of our classical ancients collections and threw down on Saturday night at the Rat Palace Redux in Red Oak, Texas. We introduced Rusty Parker to Might of Arms as well. I've been playing several Dark Ages games lately such as Dux Britannium by Too Fat Lardies and Saga by Gripping Beast's rules group. I do like Dux and the period of Late Romano-Britain and the continuous raids of the Saxons. I also like Saga but think the game was "played out" by the game of the week crowd at several local games stores before I had my collections completed. I started my wargaming addiction playing WRG 5th, 6th and a bit of 7th editions. I've missed the larger, massed battles our krew used to play with multiple army flavors and the look of massed battles on my game tables.
