New WAB Books

With painting being a slightly awkward activity here at the in-laws (it makes for too much clutter!) I decided that I needed something else to do in the evenings so I've purchased a few new WAB books. I've only had a quick browse through each but first impressions are very good.

First up is Fall of the West (or FotW as they say on the WAB forum). Given my interest in all things Roman, this purchase was a must. It covers the last 150 years or so of the Western Roman Empire, approx 325AD to 476AD. I'm really impressed with it - especially as it was one of the earlier WAB supplements. It's already got me thinking about a Late Roman Army... and Goths, Vandals, Saxons, etc!

Next we have Siege & Conquest. This is a brilliant supplement since it doesn't just focus on sieges but on games that might lead up to sieges along with rules for fighting battles in and around towns/villages. Plenty of scenarios and game ideas here. It covers ancient through to late medieval siege warfare.

Last, but most certainly not least, is Age of Arthur. This supplement, covering 5th - 8th century Britain is probably one of the best around. Lots of background info to go with the army lists, inspirational photos and lots of interesting scenarios. The feedback on the WAB forum about AoA has been great so I'm really looking forward to finding out more about this exciting and turbulent period of British history.
