Introduction


As part of the National Wargames League, Milton Keynes Wargames Society will again be offering an interesting selection of periods for the 15mm Ancients competition. This year the rules used will be Field of Glory. The periods have been carefully chosen to provide a challenging novel wargaming tournament experience at the same time to produce a spectacle for visitors from well known eras of history. Six periods are presented for a vote by last year’s teams. The three most popular periods will be used for this year’s tournament.
