In addition to Field of Glory II – Medieval I also purchased Field of Glory II Ancients (FoG II). In addition, I acquired all of the add-ons for other periods other than just the classical. My test battle for FoG II was between Greeks and Spartans – two very similar armies and a good way to test the system. In fact, when I buy new tabletop ancient rules, I always liked to test them with Greeks first.
The slideshow below shows the battle progress.
As far as the game goes, it is very similar to FoG II Medieval and slipping between the two systems is fairly straightforward. There are many gamers worldwide playing FoG II so if you are in an opponent poor area, that is one of the advantages of FoG II from Slitherine. I acquired mine through my Steam account.
I have been having a lot of fun with both sets and have managed more wargames so far this year with FoG II than I had with all wargame rules last year!
Oh, and I did win as the Greek!
