One of the nicest things to have happened since starting this blog is that I’ve met some inspiring fellow wargamers in cyberspace, and I’ve been pointed in the direction of some excellent resources that I was previously unaware of. Which brings me to the subject of this short post – a very nice implementation of the micro campaigning approach by Steven Thomas on his Balagan website. Steven has put together comprehensive notes for a micro campaign following Alexander’s progress from 335 BC to the end of his life, including ‘what if’ possibilities that culminate in a potential match-up against the Romans. I can’t recommend this highly enough – it’s well thought out and beautifully presented. Check it out here – http://www.balagan.org.uk/war/dbx/dba/alexanders-solo-campaign.htm.
A big thankyou to Paul O’Grady for effecting the introductions by the way, and for all his useful comments elsewhere on this site.
