In the Mean, Warhammer Ancient Battles has tooken a bite out of me and I fell hard. I dug out the old rule sets that have been collecting dust on my book shelf and poped them open and I am vary happy with what I saw.
I am currently bulding at lest 2 Romen legions that will be used in a (distant) future Roman civilwar. I will be useing the forces from the WAB rule set for them and also I am makeing a Dacian army useing the Armes of antiquity and barbarians hoards army also from the WAB rule set.
There are 2 things that kick started me into this era they are as fallows.
One. The abilty to make a qick and relativly "Cheap" army useing all the plastics that are now on the market and two. Iron Mittien!
Checkout his Blogspot at http://iron-mitten.blogspot.com and if your not inspired to march on rome, then I say you dont have pulse.
Oh and yes on to the Shildwall segment, I was busy talkin to a friand and fellow gamer at the local store and in what can only be discribed as a bout of more money then brains I orderd the Saxon starter army from Gripping beast.
Now fall of the west and Saxon england have always been an intresting era for me so we shell see what direction this heads to then.
Pics will be posted soon.

The First commercial "wargame" was wrote and made by author H.G. Wells in 1913 under the title of "Little Wars: A game for boys from the Twelve Years to One Hundred and Fifty and for that More Intelligent Sort of Girl who likes Games and books."
The rules themselves were not anything to get excited about and more resembled my days of shooting GI-Joe's with bebe guns and bottle rockets when I was nine. Where the game really shined is in that it was the first to have the individual units and troops characterized by inexpensive, mass produced painted toy soldiers. These games eventually inspired the games you might all know as board games like "Risk" and "Stratego". Also, role playing games like Dungeons and Dragons, and all modern military PC games have their basis from these Wargames of old.

I am Christopher Moody. I am an adventurer, globe-trotter, student, veteran para-trooper, reader of books, watcher of movies, hiker, wall-climber nerd, thrower of dice, wargamer, animal lover, a heavy metal and punk-rock enthusiast.
Having often wanted to start a blog to share my antics, I am now required to do so for a grade in my English class.
And since wargaming is one of my hobbies I decided to start off my first few post with a house building project for my friends over at Monomer games, or as I know them the Las Vegas historical war gamers group. Here is the link to our web site and yahoo group.
