Hello,

I did a homemade LOTR set (19x19 board army size) with Theoden and Rohan troops versus Orcs...sort of a Helm's Deep Hnefatafl. Very Tolkien-rific!

I prefer playing on the large board as it feels more like armies and a king escaping. It certainly gets my non gaming friends interested in having a go!

Now I am thinking of alternate army sets to build using 15mm size troops like:

King Arthur vs. the Saxons

Spartans vs. Persians

Romans vs Barbarians

Agincourt English vs. French

Are there any other famous battles or ancient conflicts which you think might lend itslef to Hnefatafl idea?

Cheers!
Christopher

If I were to do a Tolkien themed game, I'd probably go for a 9 against 16 game set in Moria, when the Fellowship were trapped by a horde of orcs in Balin's tomb or whatever room it was.
