I thought that Kassite was either a language isolate or grouped with Elamite, and not in the same familt as Hurrian and Urartian. I also understood that the Kassites were more likely to have been hill-tribesmen from the Zagros mountains than chariot-oriented people of the plains. There actually seem...

As a result of this game, I have provisionally formed the following opinions concerning Field of Glory: 1. The game played out like one could plausibly belive a battle might unfold. The use of units rather than bases as the central focus made for a greater sense of realism than exists for DBM. 2. Fi...

The Bronze Age javelinmen were the first to enter the ploughed field in the centre of the table, where they were soon threatened by the Italian crossbowmen. Meanwhile, after I looked up the combat tables and realised that charging knights into a solid line of double-ranked spearmen was not necessari...

Elba v Ebla: My First Game

After having spend a month slowly working my way through the Field of Glory rules, I decided to finally put them to the test. Being light on gaming companions but heavy on assorted lead, I decided to put together 2 armies from my miscellany of figures and game it solo. My last tabletop gaming projec...

I thought minima of 250 was an absolute maximum, which would be exceeded if the chariot minimum was increased. I note that Early Elamite of the same period (a fair comparison) also has a 4-chariot minimum. Unlike many other Bronze Age empires, Kassite Babylonia worked on a provincial basis with cent...

How's this? Kibutim and rasum are now reduced to non-compulsory special troops, maximum 1 unit each. I have replaced them in the "core troops" section with "regular infantry" taken straight out of the Amorite Kingdoms list (applicable to Middle Bronze Age Babylon). I have removed the offending shiel...

Thanks for the feedback, Ghaznavid. I was starting to fear that nobody cared about armies from the Bronze Age... It is true that HF is rare or non-existent in many of the Bronze Age lists, and Superior troops also to a lesser extent, but there are notable exceptions. The Later Sumerian or Akkadian (...
