15mm Greeks and Thracians - Marty came up to Waco from Austin to go over the game mechanics for Field of Glory with Jim and Richard. Marty was the Thracians and Jim and Richard ran the Greeks. The Greeks were well on the way to a victory until Jim made a fatal tactical error. He left the room and had Richard roll for the Greek side. Upon his return at the end of the combat phase, the entire Greek army was in rout. Even though many of the individual combats went well, all the Greek segments failed their moral tests from observing one rout... kin of like a domino effect. It was an impressive feat to roll threes and fours for all the moral tests on 2D6. The game mechanics ran well with the capacity to maneuver which is lacking in most ancient rules. It was not a "push and shove" ancient game rule set. It was decided that FOG will be the game of choice for ancients in Waco. Jim is now ordering numerous ancient armies since ancients are Jim's assigned period in Waco.
