Here’s a photo montage of our recent game featuring Israelites vs Philistines in a bronze age skirmish. The rules were a home made variant of Games Workshop’s Lord of the Rings Skirmish Rules.
The Philistines had superior numbers and were better in hand-to-hand combat. The Israelites had a high percentage of missile troops (bow and sling) who were poor in close combat, but were led by Judges (as in Gideon and Ehud, not Dredd). It was a near thing, but in the end, the might of the Judges prevailed.
