Staging a Marathon

The first wargame Battle report on this blog came early. In January 2010 I made a short series of posts about the Battle of Marathon.

Post 1: Inspiration

Post: First Game (scenario and rules as published in Battlegames 1)

Post : Second Game (WHAB)


Here are links to the whole series of post in reverse order (beginning with the final post)  (Click for whole seried of Marathon posts.)


  1. Great illustrations - I can see why you were inspired

    1. I was a bit surprised when I looked at the battles in the book from so long ago and then at a list of the wargame periods and armies that I have built.

  2. I think Marathon must be about the most gamed of all Ancient battles!

  3. Possibly, but I suspect that Platea or Gaugamela might give it a run.
