The Commands & Colors: Ancients game system allows players to effectively portray epic engagements of ancient history. The scale of the game is flexible and varies from battle to battle. For some scenarios, an infantry unit may represent a legion of soldiers, while in other scenarios a unit may represent just a few brave warriors. The battles, showcased in the scenario section, focus on the historical deployment of forces and important terrain features on the scale of the game system. The Command card system drives movement, creates ‘fog of war’, and presents players with many interesting challenges and opportunities, while the battle dice resolve combat quickly and efficiently. The battlefield tactics you will need to execute to gain victory conform remarkably well to the strengths and limitations of the various ancient unit types, their weapons, the terrain, and history.

7TH “BLACK ARMY”: SPARTA PDF Print E-mail
Written by Miguel Marques

One of my biggest disappointments when I first went through the scenarios in Exp#1 (besides the absence of Thermopylae and Chaeronea) was seeing Spartan armies with the suggestion of using Persian blocks… I could understand it for Successors battles, after all they were being “Easternized”, but Sparta???

You will say “well, there are just a few battles”, if I remember well Leuctra and Mantinea, but the problem became bigger for me as most of the 15 scenarios I have designed (Greek Tragedy, Hellenica and Sacred Band) involve Spartans. Or at least other Greeks.

I began using the gray Roman army for those scenarios, better looking than the Persian but I was not fully satisfied… And then I found a cheap solution. I’m using glass stones as generic Victory Banners, and small plastic shields as Special Unit markers. This leaves me with 56 Black blocks (yes, I have all expansions)!!!

I’ve used them to build a 7th “Black Army”: Sparta. The “only” thing I had to do was work on new, Spartan-like labels for these blocks (GET IT HERE).
