Ancient History and Wargaming for Amateurs and Grognards...and a bit of Medievals too
Spartacus, Caesar, Alexander, Hannibal, and Attila the Hun
Romans, Spartans, and Long-Haired Barbarians
Sword and Sandal Gaming is a new blog combining two topics of special interest to myself and many of my gaming friends – the study of Ancient and Medieval History, along with wargaming these subjects. I am no expert, but I do fancy myself a bit of an amateur historian in these periods, and I hope to present material here for people with similar interests. My plan is to include an equal amount of material concerning Ancient and Medieval Wargaming, along with general history topics.
As far as gaming is concerned, the majority of my gaming uses tabletop armies composed of hand-painted miniature figures, although I have also been a board and computer gamer – it is my intent to have topics pertaining to all these types of gaming. In addition to my own postings, I hope to solicit additional material from any other interested readers.
...So, it's a start, I guess. For all you fans of tales of swordplay and armored hosts, let's have some fun together.
