I've been following the development of Ganesha Games' new chariot racing game Faustus Furius on the author's blog Irregular Wars and was very impressed with what I saw.
So, I immediately bought a copy when it was released on Wargames Vault; here is a pic of the cover:
Having read it, I find that I really like it, so I've set myself a goal - to have it ready to play at Christmas with my siblings, their kids & my parents.
To that end, having bought the rules, I looked around for chariots to use as I didn't have any. The author has used 6mm chariots on his blog, but, although a fan of 6mm, I wanted to use something a bit bigger, so have bought a bunch from Newline Designs' 10mm range (which happened to be on a 25% off sale at the time - result!).
I'm envisaging a multi-part track (2 or 3 parts - not sure) from 6mm MDF at the moment, and am considering getting a Javis desert wargaming mat from SnM Stuff to put on that board, although I may yet use my own sand ... not really sure at the moment. If I use the mat, it may be difficult to base the chariots to match. Doing it myself would be make matching the bases much easier.
If it all goes well, I may use these rules for other racing games - I have a bunch of Victorian steam tanks that I could well use for it!
