I’m interested in refighting the Battle of Zama. This is quite a popular focus for historical scenarios so I thought I’d have a look at what other people have done before collating my own thoughts. By chance, Zama was the theme of the Society of Ancients Battle Day in 2010. Not surprisingly the Battle Day, and Zama, got a lot of coverage in the Slingshot, the society journal, over the next few months. I’ve used those accounts to explore some key questions about how to refight the battle.
I’ve been on the look out for a new set of Ancients rules for a while. Commands & Colors is one of the major contenders since the demise of DBM so I purchased the base set (Commands & Colors Ancients).
