As usual coming to these wonderful Forums to ask my gaming-brethren for some invaluable help.

I would like to make a change from my regular WW2, WW1 and even Civil War battle games and would love to tackle some of Alexander the Great famous battles i.e.: Battle of Hydaspes and even the Battle of Gaugamela where Alexander won great strategic battles against lopsided numbers.

The only PC game I can think of and I have never played any of them would be "The Field of Glory" series, and if that is the game, there are like a bunch of extra scenarios/battle-packs, so would not know where to even begin. I would prefer to remain within the Macedonian King's Campaigns but I am willing to expand and try other eras.

Can any of you help me out please? Or even suggest another title if there is one?

As usual, thanks in advance for your invaluable help!

And on another topic, I have always wanted to try some Zulu/Great Britain Campaigns, but have no idea where to even find any games that may offer those scenarios.

Will check some forums before committing but this is a good start! Not that familiar with the HPS gaming style or their HPS Ancient Warfare engine though, but am willing to take a look at it.

Thanks a bunch.

Matrixgames Tin Soldiers : Alexander http://www.matrixgames.com/store/298/Tin.Soldiers:.Alexander.the.Great.

Great Battles of Alexander if you can find the old boxed copy of it. Probably Ebay maybe Amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/Interactive-Magic-Great-Battles-Alexander/dp/B0002KV4XA/ref=pd_sim_sbs_vg_3

Total War Alexander: http://www.amazon.com/Rome-Total-Alexander-Expansion-Download/dp/B00405RA3Q/ref=sr_1_1?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1351021721&sr=1-1&keywords=great+battles+of+alexander

There's some others rts clickies but I don't think you'd be interested in those.

Highly recommend the HPS series though as those are very detailed and more in the intermediate to advanced stages of gameplay.
