I play a lot of tabletop games (Warhammer Fantasy, Flames of War, Star Wars, War Machine, etc.). One of my favorite hobbies.
I've always wanted to play one set in the ancient period. I found the following website and I love the mini's and think I will buy some:
I know they have a rule set (Hail Caesar) but it isn't necessary that I use that one. I'll buy there mini's and then use whatever rule set works best.
I'm looking for a game that is closer to historical accuracy than Warhammer. While it doesn't need to be completely historically accurate, I fulfill my need of heroes running around destroying whole units by themselves by playing Fantasy. I'm looking for something that captures the feel of Romans clashing with Gauls.
Here are some options I've come across to check out, but I'm not sure if I've found all the good ones.
Hail Caesar: http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/97377/hail-caesar
Warhammer Ancient Battles: http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/8003/warhammer-ancient-ba...
Field of Glory: http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/31542/field-of-glory
Clash of Empires: http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/102782/clash-of-empires
So I guess I have two questions.
1. What other rule sets should I be looking at and or reading reviews for? Did I miss any?
2. Does anybody recommend one of these specifically? If so, a quick reason why would help.

Stone Age?, Mammoth Hunters?, Caveman Curling?
De Bellis Antiquitatis
Good rules for ancients. Should still be available as they are very popular (especially DBA).
