2006-11-18 1st Warhammer Ancient Battle game - Vikings vs Saxons

This was my first Warhammer Ancient Battles (WAB) game. Previously I'd only played ancients, dark ages and medieval with my old club back in North Wales using the Tactica rules. I enjoyed Tactica because it gave a historical result in an evening. I also enjoyed the supplemental army lists that allowed me to filed different armies and vary the games up. The variety also led me in to researching armies and history I wasn't familiar with which for me is a big part of the hobby.

WAB seemed to provide the same, with the added advantage of being more story driven which I think is a plus.

My friend and I decided to keep things simple and chose to game Vikings vs Saxons.
