Kurzbeschreibung

March with Alexander the Great's Macedonians against the mighty empire of the Achaemenid Perisans at Issus in 333BC! Experience the brutality of a Dark Ages struggle between Romano-British warriors and Early Saxon armies in Ad495! Re-fight some of the bloodiest battles of the ancient and medieval worlds, using Neil Thomas's fully illustrated book. Neil brings an authentic historical perspective to wargaming, dividing battles into Biblical, Classical, Dark Age and Medieval sections, each with its own set of rules, battle reports, suggestions on deployment and extensive army lists. A must for novice and veteran wargamers alike, the book includes maps for each sample battle and a selection of colour photographs.

Synopsis

Re-fight some of the bloodiest battles of the ancient and medieval worlds! Seasoned wargamer and author Neil Thomas brings historical perspective to the hobby with a description and interpretation of significant military developments from 3,000BC to AD1500. Wargaming is the simulation of accurate historical battles using miniature figures to fight over three dimensional terrain, their movement and combat being regulated by clearly defined rules. Neil Thomas' new book provides specific coverage of ancient and medieval wargaming, thanks to its division into biblical, classical, Dark Age and medieval sections. Each section has its own set of rules and much expanded army lists. The wargamer gains additional perspective from data panels containing facts about weaponry, personalities and chroniclers, and quotations from original document sources. Useful suggestions for further reading are also included, while battle reports in each section provide tactical insights for both novice and veteran wargamers.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wow! Simple, not simplistic. 20. April 2008
Von Mark W. Walton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
Mr. Thomas Ancient and medieval Wargaming is about as good as it gets in wargames rules. The general period is subdivided into 5 sub-eras, all of which share generally similar mechanical rules. Around this frame the real joy of the book is constructed - period detail that is sensible, and dozens on dozens of army lists. What makes this combination different is that the rules can be easily understood by anyone, and yet there is considerable complexity - a complexity that comes from decision making, not rules generated minutia. You may wonder about what to do next, but you'll have no problems with 'how to' do it next. Likewise the rules make it plain that these are game rules - not simulations. It is refreshing to have a specific and carefully defined victory, not a 'We'll play until we're tired, or until our wives clear their throats one time too many...' In these rules there will be a winner and a loser in about two hours.
I've been a miniatures wargame for more than thirty years. This is the best twenty bucks I've ever spent!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Book for Older Wargamers & Newbies. 16. Februar 2008
Von S. Nelson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
This book is great, I have dumped all my old wargmes rules and now am using this one extensively, it is simple enough for me to remember how to play when I like, unlike all my other sets, which I seem to have to re-read over and over again before being able to play again but not with this book nor his previous book Wargaming and Introduction, which is a very good as well, hope to see some more from Mr. Thomas soon I hope. Get this one if your tired of re-hashing complicated wargames everytime you wanna game.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Simple Perfection 9. März 2009
Von T. D. Donovan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The perfect book for the jaded gamer. I had given up on this period and its all-encompassing rigid tournament based fiddly rules till I read A&M Wargaming. The basic mechanics are very simple and straightforward. What Neil does though, is he breaks down each distinct period (Biblical, Classical, Dark Ages, Medieval) by providing what is a vastly more simple, yet seemingly more accurate portrayal of the typical troop types and their interactions for that era. The players get to concentrate on making command decisions for the miniature army and not fighting over the rules.

Without a doubt they are simply the best introductory, multi-player, or convention rules availible. I encourage players and clubs to pick them up, and use them as a framework for their own home rules, adding just a little chrome here and there (command and control and expanded army lists really all that is needed) for the perfect set of Simple, Fun, yet eminently well researched and thought out rules.

Excellent Job Neil !

Ancient & Medieval Wargaming

A good all-in-one rules set for miniature gaming in the Ancient and Medieval worlds. Lots of armies included and room for growth.

The rules are a bit dense and the formatting isn't very intuitive, but if you have a background in gaming generally and miniature gaming in particular, Ancient and Medieval Wargaming may well be just for you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ancient and Medieval Wargames 17. Juli 2011
Von Mr Pooter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Quite simply a marvellous book which covers the entire period from Biblical times to Bosworth Field by using variations to a sound set of core rules. Excellent explanations and reasoning throughout and a good game at the end. This is the best book on the subject since the early days of Donald Featherstone and deserves similar success.
