Welcome to Pacman's Warhammer Ancient Battles Page. In this page you will find various army lists, ideas, bitz and other fun part
I first came up with the idea of building an army centered around the final conflicts of Cleopatra VII's reign. Cleopatra ruled over a period of history I really like and own numerous armies for (Romans, Gauls, Illyrian/Thracians, Parthians). I had a few packs of Macedonian / Successor infantry and some Nubian archers. I began thinking about a way to use those minis. Then the idea dawned on me. So I decided to see what an army of Ptolemaic would look like.
I went to look for WAB resources: no army published. I looked through WRG's and DBA books to see what those games had as far as resources. There were some useful tidbits. Then I contacted Jeff Jonas, the author of Alexander the Great for WAB and web master for AncientBattles.com. He pointed me to an army list he published for his yet-unreleased Successor supplement (which has been on my must-buy list since AtG came out). As luck would have it, he was willing to share! I sat down and devoured the list. Immediately I saw a few tweaks to make to it. But I had a basic framework to work up from.
