Tony Bath's Ancient Wargaming



A compilation of the gaming publications of Society founder, Tony Bath, published by John Curry. As well as the "Peltast and Pila" rules and Tony's book on setting up wargames campaigns, this includes the Society publication "Legend of Hyboria", which it supersedes (and which is no longer available as a separate publication).

Tony Bath’s early inspiration was the force that launched ancient wargaming. With his friend Donald Featherstone, he pioneered the first table top ancient battles and the most well-known of all wargaming campaigns, the Legend of Hyboria.

This compilation of his work includes:

  • The Peltast and Pila Ancient Wargaming Rules
  • The complete book, Setting up a Wargames Campaign
  • The Legend of Hyboria (including notes on the conclusion of that climactic campaign)


Setting up a Wargames Campaign is a complete guide to setting up an ancient and medieval campaign and has chapters on:

  • Map movement
  • Contact, battles and after effects
  • Playing with umpires and without
  • Supplies and replacements
  • Guidelines on running campaigns in other periods.
