Newbury & Reading Wargames Society staged the Battle of Ipsus in 301 BC during the wars of Alexander’s succession.
The Battle of Paraitakene in 317 BC between the forces of Antigonus and Eumenes was fought out by the Society of Ancients.
Donnington Miniatures were fielding Macedonian era troops as well in their demo game for Mortem et Gloriam.
The starter set for Gangs of Rome was available on the day and there were some demo games held to introduce new players.
