I've finally got around to starting to add the five years or so's worth of Vis Bellica ancients period battle reports to the site.
As they vary in length from a few paragraphs to a major dissertation, rather than giving each report it's own page, I'm adding them in blocks defined by months. Might make it easier to read a whole lot of them at once as well.
Re-reading them all as I transfer them across has made me pine for the game a bit. I really must get on with the second edition...

Just in case anyone was wondering why the post count as slowed slightly, it's because I'm making a real push to re-load all the content for the Vis Bellica and Vis Magica sections of the website. VB is up first, and I'm currently in he middle of loading all the scenarios I wrote for the game.
Macedonians in action
Each scenario comes with a history of the battle involved, so they are well worth a read even if you're not a VB or Ancients player. So far I've managed to load scenarios for the battles of:
QarQar: Assyrian action in the desert
Leuctra: the Spartans get a bloody nose
Chaeronea: Philip of Macedon in action against the Greeks
Hydaspes: his son, Alexander, fighting the Indians
Zama: Hannibal and the Carthaginians take a beating
Cynoscephalae: action at the Dog's Head
Carrhae: the Romans under Crassus come a cropper in Parthia
More on the way. In fact I might do another now...
