It’s been going on for a while now – that small group of gamers somewhere in the corner of the store playing DBA. For the members of the Western Sydney DBA & HoTT Facebook group this is no secret, as pictures have been posted ad nauseum (I’ll minimise the Roman and Gaul posts, I promise!). The games have been tense and rewarding. Armies are under production. And 3×3′ sections of the Ancient world are on fire.
We love it.
So how is DBA being played at Historical Gaming? Not exclusively in 28mm, that’s for certain, though the vast majority of armies are looking to be at that scale. There are a fair number of 15mm armies floating about as well. We’re also using DBA 3.0 (soon to be released in print with shiny new army lists) and generally playing our games on the minimum sized boards (2×2′ for 15mm and 3×3′ for 28mm).
We also plan to play later periods (Rennaissance and after) using the Humberside Extensions for 1500-1900 (DBA-HX). However, these will need some modification as the current version was written for DBA 1.1. Stay tuned…
