The breakup of forces for the battle of Gaza demo:Antigonid Early Successor Army
Demetrius, Sub commander and Battle standard; 2x10 Companions, 10 horse archers, 1x32 Silver shields, 2x32 Pantodapoi, 2x32 Greek Mercenaries, 30 Thracian Mercenaries, 3x12 light infantry (bow, sling and javelin units) and 5 elephants. Ptolemaic Early Successor Army
Ptolemy, Seleucus and Standard bearer; 1x10 Companions, 1x6 Companions, 1x10 Light Thracian cavalry, 3x32 Macedonian Pike, 3x32 Greek Mercenaries, 3x12 light infantry (bow, sling and javelin units and anti-elephant devices). The anti-elephant devices stopped the advance of Demetrius' elephants and unlike the real battle there ensued a push of pike in the centre. Demetrius' line had been upset by his own fleeing elephants and the honours went to Ptolemy and Seleucus.

Excellent stuff! Sometimes it rains in the desert. Nice to see Gerry's Thracians in play, I haven't seen those yet and I have not as yet gotten mine done.

I just stumbled across your blog. Very nice. I especially like your Deluge stuff. Have you posted your army lists on the WABlist? I am interested in getting my group to give this a try and would love to, if it's OK with you, use your lists.

You can drop me an email at

Haven't posted the lists yet as I am still new to the idea of Blogs and haven't found a good way to post them. There are 10 lists (100 pages) so far for the Deluge period (1655-1673), they are Polish Commonwealth, Lithuanian Rebels, Cossack Rebellion, Swedish , Austrians, Brandenburg, Muscovite, Ottomans, Transylvanian and Danish. All apart from the Danish and Transylvanian have been extensivally tested. When I work out how to post them in an easily accessable way then it will be done. Cheers Scott

Scott,

Thanks for responding. I dropped a line on the WABlist as well. Feel free to to ignore that.

Do they (WABlist) have room in their files section? It seems like you have a wealth of awesome knowledge to share on this period.

Jay the WECW and WAB lists do not have enough space in their file section to post the lists and a large outline (brief history) of the period that I translated from Swedish. The Deluge period is simply fantastic and has everything a wargamer could want. I promise to put everything on here ASAP. Scott
