|Temple of Aphaia - Aegina (August 2011)|
As a child in London, long before I ever went to Hellas, I would reenact the deeds of the heroes of Antiquity. This would range from the Heraklean slaying of beasts to sacking Troy!
Now into middle-age my enthusiasm is undimmed, although my energy levels have dropped markedly. This has dictated that my reenactments are now played out with toy soldiers on the wargames table - rather than charging about the familial home sword in hand!
This blog will document my thoughts on anyone from Agamemnon to Agesilaus and anything from samosas to sarissas! I will not limit myself to rambling about affairs Hellenic as I am also interested in Rome (especially the dealings with the East) Byzantium, Baktria and even the fearsome Makedonians.
I am sure that many of the opinions expressed here will prove troublesome to the orthodox wargaming community. Hopefully most will stifle the cat-calls and perhaps even think again about something that was previously taken as Gospel!
Anyway, enough of this I have a pregnant parrot to care for.
