Peterctid - I like that kind of idea. Perhaps giving RFCM the "DBA" treatment inasmuch as one could have multiple small forces rather than one big army? It makes things much more accessible and easy to get into too...

Good-I am a big fan of the small army idea. RFCM on a 3 x3 with heroes and a great pregame. Works for me.

The Osprey rules with their small armies and period flavour seem very popular.

Yes, period specific would be best. WRG gota bit crazy with the massive period they tried to encompass. It gave us too many weird things and lost historical flavour. Those Aztecs V WOTR!!!!!

Yes, I'd think a fairly small scale set that doesn't take masses of figures might drive some interest - not so good for figure sales per army, but drive a bit of volume?!

Basic Impetus & DBA are good examples, whilst going for a small time period with matched opponents would be excellent and let you get some flavour in. Pre-game set up would be great, so long as it's quick (ten mins, fifteen maybe?) and covered getting the terrain up on the board and wasn't the main event/takes too much focus, and involves both players or is quick/trustworthy enough it can be run thru by each side at the same time...

What period though? The PP Ancients range is a bit limited... I'd suggest Germans, Parthians, Imperial Romans but is that too close to Aurelian? Or "Chariots at Armageddon" and do a 15mm Syro-Caanite/Hittite range to mach the Egyptians ;)

The Trojan War is crying out for  the PP/RFCM treatment.

Now that is an intriguing thought...

Lots of scope for fun and games with the named "heroes", and maybe the gods supporting each one too...?

Any range would be very sellable  to HoTT players too

And Baueda already do some nice city wall scenery, so nothing needed there...
