Nick, Sidney, Richard, you need to read this:

I think that there is useful information in this paper.

Interesting times ahead for ancient wargaming!

Not a fan of the new name (despite being the only person in my class to get a Latin O level).
De Bellis Multitudinis, De Bellis Antiquitatis, Dux Britanniarum, Disciplina et .... Do I see a pattern emerging here?

Would much prefer a one liner from Asterix.

Thank you Emilio. I have downloaded that.

Contrarius. I wasn't influenced by those at all, but by the classic Roman military virtues of discipline and virtue, The discipline of the men complemented by the leadership of their officer pretty much sums up what the game is about. It's a perfect match. The use of Latin isn't that surprising, surely?

Well as all latin wargmes rules names (and others CoC anyone?) are abbreviated by the players then DEV it is.
Good job it wasn't Virtus Disciplina 😉🤣

I find it curious that the traditional English view is that the Romans were the good guys, the Greeks effete, anything further East unspeakable, and the Celts were noble savages yearning (unknowingly) for the civilising influence of the hob-nailed sandal.

You would think that the independent notions of the stout Briton would rebel against the rods and axes of the foreign invader. :)

Now, are there rules for Chariots and elephants..? enquiring minds with figures for Caledones and Carthaginians would like to know.
