There wasn’t enough Ancients & Medieval on display at Salute 2013 for my liking. There isn’t enough anyplace, anytime for that matter. I took pictures of most of the valiant efforts I discovered and they make for a pretty varied lot.
To start proceedings, a tribute to Ray Harryhausen in Fleeced! by the South London Warlords. The game represents the final climatic battle between Jason, plus two other Argonauts against the “Children of the Night”. The figures are all accurate “collector” models based on Ray Harryhausen’s brilliant originals.
The Battle of Ilipa 206 BC during the Second Punic War. Unfortunately I can’t say who ran this or which games system was being used.
Greeks against Persians in a loose recreation of the Battle of Marathon 490 BC by Ancient & Modern Army Supplies.
A Pyrrhic Victory – Heraclea 280 BC by the Oxford Wargames Society was played using house written rules and squares for ease of movement.
The Battle of Cravant 1423 during the Hundred Year’s War was recreated by the Lance & Longbow Society.
To round things off, some snapshots of other displays and participation games of the eras.
