Ancient Battles on the Tabletop

Ok, Ulot (my roomate, he's not much of a blogger) and I might be getting into ancients miniatures gaming, depending on if we like the local commuity and can find time. We've settled on Field of Glory in 15mm. I'll be playing my idealized late Principate (193-211) Romans (Septimus Severus) and Ulot will take a late 100's year war free company, (pikes, longbows, bilmen, men-at-arms cavalry).

If this project comes off it should be interesting. I remain curious to see how heavy armored 'Dacian Wars' legionaries and clibinarii 'boiler-makers' will fair against bow, pollax, and chivalry.
