GGA: A Simple Budget Ancient Wargaming system


GGA is a wargaming rule set designed to let you re-enact the greatest ancient armies of history in 10mm.


Granny Grating Armies is the first in a series of affordable gaming rule-books from miniature commission painter and gaming enthusiast Arthur Hannan presented by the small entrepreneurial business EZPainter.

 EZPainter has long been a passion job, but now i wish to branch into my true passion writing simple wargames for everyone to enjoy. After The Kickstarter the rules will be available from this link

And hopefully wargames vault!

What is GGA

Granny Grating Armies is a wargames rule-set inspired by the game play of  tactical PC strategy games and aims to emulate them and their mechanics on the tabletop using any miniatures you like. 

The game incorporates instructions on how to build your own armies on a budget. Using unique and multi purpose plastic grating you can create any of your favorite ancient armies in hours and get playing faster than any system currently existing.

The pristine prototype of the awesome soft back

The main rule-book has all the rules you need to get gaming.

All you need to do is grab a sheet of Granny Grating and get crafting. Basic Army lists for the Romans, Egyptians, Spartans and Celts are all listed in the book as well as an extensive basic commands block and all the counters you need to play.

GGA aims to offer you a distinct "flavor" of ancient warfare without being fussy about 100% historical accuracy

Game play is strategy and tactics based. Granny Grating Armies aims to bring an element of realism into war-games with an unforgiving energy system and a unique reaction system. Both are designed to emulate the effectiveness and and endurance of a "real warrior".

A unit of pinned (under flame ammo fire) Roman cavalry fights a "shielding" unit of Celtic woad warriors.

Although the game aims to be realistic it strikes a special balance between the abstract and realism with beautiful tiny "make-it-yourself" peg miniatures that can be crafted in no time at all. For this we use Canvas Mesh (Or Granny Grating) and the correct size, quality and durability has been taken into account when picking the perfect supplier for the add-ons. As you can see the use of nut shells and leftover board game tokens was a big part of the budget side in the play-test period.

Just as in real life, the only way to re-gain your energy is to execute a "hold" action. A great example of the tactical side of the game

Because of this obvious nod to the abstract the game boasts a "flavor" of the ancient world instead of 100% historical accuracy, in favor of a more dynamic and enjoyable experience. In this way it can be a very unique way to introduce people to our history, and the battles that shaped us!

If you put a little time in, you can create epic armies with the GGA process

Despite introducing these home made armies to the gaming community, the game can be played with any of your existing collections more than easily.

 Below is a brief example of one turn in a small battle. Here you can see how the ruthless Celts charge in with full might, the comically named "head throwers" along with them. The Romans hold a strong front line and consequently push back and break the Celts! Although this is not a long example, it demonstrates well that the game can turn on the roll of a D6 in many instances and that "real" warfare was neither fair or straight forward.

The book is a sexy, sturdy and "game-play surface ready" card with beautiful pages inside made of durable paper.

We have a local/ small business and friendly (family friend in fact!) Printer who is going to get them done as fast as is physically possible so you can get yours asap after you pledge!

 Check out my 100% honest un-boxing below of the preview copy!


Why Homemade Minis

Two unpainted "Granny grating" armies

The game book includes instructions on how to build and create your own armies, with a sheet of plastic grating you can be gaming faster than ever before and you own 100% of your force, something that no other company in the world or gamer can boast but you! The force in the image below was created quickly in two hours, but some fans are already laboring over larger forces.

A regular 55Pt Roman Army (starter army) built and painted in just two hours

However you do not need to use the "Granny Grating" armies (canvas mesh) you are welcome to use any existing collection as long as you use the rules provided in the book, it will work!


Why Kickstarter

Taking GGA to conventions has been a key part of the play-testing period

At this point i have a game, a method and a passion but what i do not have is funds for printing, packaging and delivery of this product.

In this sense the Kickstarter campaign is simply a broad launching platform for the game and then i will sell the rest of my produced copies on the website here.

I want to offer the best product i can to the gaming public and to me that means offering reliable and sleek paperback copies of the game.

Following the first run of the Kickstarter campaign i now know that i ought to make more PDF's available, however i will still be running 100 copies of the book for those who want one. Many prefer a physical book and that's cool with me!

OUR PRINTERS

Beacon Printers

We are using Beacon Printers from Penarth which is a local business. It is the prerogative of GGA as a "small business venture" to try and keep as much of our funding flowing through the veins of other small business', for this reason we will not be using a giant manufacturer but instead the friendly and kindly services of Beacon.
 Pete who owns the business is a really lovely fella and we can all thank his great work for our beautiful books once they arrive!

Risks and challenges

GGA's Biggest potential risk would be printing however I have a stockist for the Grating and basing card so that is not an issue and I have sourced a local printing business that have a great reputation.

Even though it is the only possible problem there should be no issues whatsoever getting the prints out on time.

Another potential risk is perhaps that we might way oversell, and in that regard i have allowed an extra two weeks for delivery time.

The book is completely ready to print and the licenses and rights are all mine. I have no general issues to expect and i am ready to distribute this book. 
The sourcebook is also complete and ready to release at this time.

The Kingdom of Jerusalem

Theme: Max Cronkite, "Historical introduction - Amalric's legacy"

King Amalric of Jerusalem (r. 1163-1174) was the father and predecessor of King Baldwin IV . During his reign, the Middle-East was fractured between multiple kingdoms, states, caliphates, principalities, and counties. The outcome of Amalric’s attempts to expand his kingdom and retinue of supporters against the increasing power of Nur ad-Din, would adversely affect the rule of Baldwin IV .

The Siege of TyreTheme: Murray Dahm, "The Historia of William of Tyre - Deeds done beyond the sea"

The archbishop William of Tyre wrote the Historia rerum partibus transmarinis gestarum (A History of Deeds done beyond the Sea) to record the history of the First Crusade and the history of the Kingdom of Jerusalem to 1184. The work is also referred to just as the Historia Ierosolymitana. It is a vital source for the history of the Kingdom, the only one written in Latin by a contemporary resident and Christian witness.

Theme: Robert Holmes, "The Latin field army, ca. 1099-1187 - The most cautious men in the world"

The Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem based its defense around an intricate chain of fortifications, and its field army. Yet while these fortifications have become some of the most iconic medieval castles in the world, the Latin field army has fallen into obscurity. Though it lacked both the manpower and resources to ever be entirely self-sufficient militarily, the Latin field army developed a tactical system that was by the standards of contemporary Western Europe, highly innovative.

The reenactor: Clive Kelly, "The reenactor - Clive Kelly"

In this short article, we interview Clive Kelly, a reenactor of the Crusader period and early Middle Ages.

A twelfth century Syrian warrior.Theme: Gregory J. Liebau, "The Kingdom of Jerusalem and its neighbors - Hostility in the Holy Land"

It would take nearly a century after crusader forces took Jerusalem in 1099 for the city to be recaptured by Saladin. In the meantime, political intrigues, personal enmities, and infighting among the Muslims, would allow the crusaders to gain a foothold in Syria as well. The Franks found themselves thrust into the midst of local disputes and warfare – which they participated in against or alongside their Muslim neighbors.

Theme: William E. Welsh, "The battle of Montgisard, 1177 - A day of terrible slaughter"

Saladin’s 26,000-strong army crossed the southern border of the Kingdom of Jerusalem in mid-November 1177 on a large-scale raid meant to expose the weakness of King Baldwin IV’s monarchy. The Ayyubid Sultan of Egypt and Syria had received intelligence indicating that a significant portion of Baldwin’s knights and sergeants had marched north with Count Philip I of Flanders to assist Prince Raymond of Antioch in fighting the Muslims in Syria, and this information served as a catalyst for the raid.

Theme: Kim Stubbs, "The life of the Leper King - Baldwin IV"

The future king Baldwin IV grew up in his father’s court and according to his tutor, the historian William of Tyre, showed great promise as a ruler from an early age. He was an excellent horseman, possessed a retentive memory, a keen intellect and was “disposed to follow good advice”. Tragically, at the age of nine, he was diagnosed with leprosy, a disease that in the Middle Ages was interpreted as a mark of God’s displeasure.

Special: Brian Burfield, "The influence of the Viking god of warfare - Odin, warrior god"

A Viking warrior dying on the battlefield would have hoped to be amongst those chosen by the descending Valkyries to join Odin’s great army in Valhalla. Soon countless ravens would begin to feast on the dead and the disconnected limbs littering the battleground. There would have been those, still alive, who would have believed that they could see a cloaked figure in the distance carrying a spear and roaming the battlefield, a wanderer. This form was known by many names including: All-Father, Father of the Slain, God of Captives and most notably Odin. Both the god of poetry and occult wisdom, Odin was also the god of war and warriors, areas in which he was well-experienced.

The weapon: Sidney E. Dean, "Mobile fortress of the Hussite Wars - Ziska’s Wagenburg"

A prominent – perhaps even decisive – element of the Hussite Wars (1419-1436) was the Wagenburg or Tabor. When encountering superior enemy forces, the Hussites quickly arranged their wagons to form an enclosed camp from which they unleashed heavy fire on any attacker. While circling or squaring transport wagons to create a defensive position or camp was nothing new, the Hussites made this a core element of their military organization and tactics. Special ‘war wagons’ were designed and built to execute this tactic, and much of the infantry was reorganized to take advantage of this adaptive technology.

Special: Frank Jastrzembski, "The military career of St. Francis of Assisi - Soldier before Saint?"

Patron saint of wildlife. Guardian of the lepers. Champion of the impoverished. Bearer of the Stigmata. Battle-hardened soldier? All of these traits have been used to describe one of the most prolific characters in Christianity, Saint Francis of Assisi.

A 13th century bassinetSpecial: Sean McGlynn, "The Grand Chevauchée, 1355 - The Black Prince unleashed"

“Frightening your enemy is the fundamental and presumably the oldest weapon of war.” The historians who penned this quote (Peter Calvocoressi, Guy Wint and John Pritchard) were writing about the mass bombing campaigns of World War Two, the aerial raids of destruction that shared common features with the medieval chevauchée: destruction of the enemy’s economic base; attempts to undermine morale; exposing the weakness of the enemy. In the Middle Ages, arguably the most famous practitioner of the chevauchée was Edward the Black Prince, during the Hundred Years War (1337-1453).

Save Brandywine

Save Brandywine

Help save one of the American Revolution's most critical battlefields!

There are very few physical places left that tell the story of America's founding era. Time devoted to teaching history is dwindling, and developers are bulldozing these lands to construct housing on hallowed ground. But today we have an opportunity to reverse this trend. Together, we can help save land at Brandywine battlefield.

This 10.4-acre plot is located in the middle of two major combat zones at the site of the longest one-day battle of the Revolutionary War and the first battle where a young Marquis de Lafayette played a defining role. This property provides an invaluable opportunity to preserve the land and teach the public about the importance of the sprawling battle that took place here in 1777.

The Battle of Brandywine was an 11-hour slug-fest in which Washington's men went toe-to-toe with the powerful British Army. Though the Continentals were ultimately defeated, the fierce and determined performance of Washington's men ultimately convinced the French to support the nascent nation in its war for independence. Fast-forward a few centuries, and this land is located within a wealthy suburb of Philadelphia and has been advertised as "an unparalleled opportunity" to build a McMansion. We can't let this happen.

Thanks to grants from other organizations and a generous donor, we can save this key piece of battlefield for future generations at a cost of only $45,000. This is an astonishingly small amount for such an important part of American history. Will you please help us reach the finish line?

What's more, if you help with a gift of $50 or more, you will receive a Special Preservation Edition hardback copy of Brandywine: A Military History of the Battle that Lost Philadelphia but Saved America.

Thank you for your generosity and unwavering commitment to the cause. It's people like you who keep our history alive for generations to come.

The reign of Caracalla

The museum piece: Diana Kretschmann, "A late sixth-century gravestone from Athens - Immigrant or valued resident?"

In the last decade of the sixth century BC, a man from Naxos was buried at the most important cemetery of Athens. Visitors of the Kerameikos Museum usually overlook his gravestone, but the inscribed epitaph has a lot to tell.

Theme: Jona Lendering, "Tyrant, traveler, administrator - Caracalla"

Caracalla, who ruled the Roman Empire from 211 to 217, was a tireless traveler and a bold administrator, best known for granting citizenship to all male inhabitants. However, he was also a violent man, who ruthlessly killed anyone who might challenge his reign.

Theme: Sidney E. Dean, "Britain under Caracalla - Peace in his time"

Caracalla’s early reign is inextricably tied to Britain. He was secondin- command of his father’s 208-211 Caledonian expedition, and it was the army in Britain which proclaimed him emperor after Severus’ death. As emperor, Caracalla initiated policies which would keep Roman Britain relatively secure and peaceful for decades to come.

Theme: Jona Lendering, "Caracalla erases the past - Unperson"

After the assassination of Geta, his statues were smashed, his portraits damaged, his names and titles erased from inscriptions. Business as usual: a typical example of the Roman practice of damnatio memoriae.

Theme: Murray Dahm, "Grant, grab, process, or something else - The Constitutio Antoniniana"

The Constitutio Antoniniana or Edict of Caracalla granted Roman citizenship to all free inhabitants of the Empire in AD 212, soon after Caracalla had had his brother Geta murdered. This grant was to have an enormous impact on the inhabitants of the Empire but inexplicably passes largely unnoticed in our sources.

Theme: Christian Koepfer, "Caracalla's visit to Raetia - In search of a cure"

Although popular histories often give a different impression, the second and third years of Caracalla’s reign, 212 and 213, are not well-documented. Still, by using various types of evidence from all parts of the Empire, we can retrace Caracalla’s whereabouts and his desperate quest for a cur e.

Theme: Oliver D. Hoover, "The advice of Severus as reflected in coinage - Caracalla's coins"

Before he died, Roman Emperor Septimius Severus famously imparted his final words of wisdom to his two sons and co-emperors (Augusti), Caracalla and Geta: “Be on good terms with one another, be generous to the soldiers, and don’t care about anything else.” As his coinage shows, Caracalla listened quite well. Unfortunately.

Theme: Sadi Maréchal, "Imperial self-promotion and the baths - A palace for the people"

The Baths of Caracalla have been called one of the Seven Wonders of Rome. Even as a ruin, they are still impressive: this is the best-preserved Roman bathhouse in the Eternal City. However, there’s more to this public building than meets the eye.

Julia Domna attempts a reconciliation between her two sonsTheme: Inge Mennen, "Surviving and saving the Severan Dynasty - The love of Julia Domna"

Julia Domna was presented to the Roman people, the army, and the Senate as the mother of a new dynasty: the Severans, who promised peace and continuity after the troubled Year of the Five Emperors (193). Caracalla, however, destroyed the promise of stability.

Theme: Paul van der Heijden, "Reconstructing an emperor's facial features - A face for Caracalla"

Written sources tell us much about the emperors of Rome: the lives and influence of the rulers of the known world are well documented. Still, intriguing questions remain. What did they really look like? The portrait of Caracalla is a fascinating example.

Special: Alexander Smarius, "Roman persecution of Christians - The Scillitan martyrs"

The earliest Christian text in the Latin language is a document that records how the authority of a Roman state official was defied by six Christians under trial. Although it contains only 377 words, the document provides some important keys to understanding why Christians refused to perform pagan worship, even in face of capital punishment.

Special: Kees Alders, "The philosophical system of the cynics - Philosophical buffoons"

The conquests of Alexander the Great profoundly changed the Greek world. Persian, Babylonian, and Egyptian officials proved that the old distinction between Greeks and barbarians was obsolete. The common world view changed, and hence philosophy, as we will see in a series of articles on Hellenistic philosophy.

Special: Marc G. DeSantis, "The Uluburun shipwreck - Trove beneath the waves"

Discovered in 1982, the Uluburun wreck came to revolutionize our understanding of the world of the Late Bronze Age. It allowed an unparalleled view of what seaborne commerce was like in around 1300 BC.

Review: Piet Gerbrandy, "The big review - The Final Pagan Generation"

An extensive review of The Final Pagan Generation, which concerns society and religion during the Late Roman Empire.

How do we know: Casper Porton, "How do we know - How to pronounce Latin"

Although we don’t have any MP3 records of Cicero’s orations or Ovid’s poetry, we can reconstruct how Latin must have sounded many centuries ago. What evidence do classicists use?
