I've recently become aware that Chris Hahn, a prolific writer on solo wargaming, has started a blog. Chris is particularly interested in the ancient era, and likes to refight historical battles, often using different sets of rules, which he then compares for their effectiveness.
Interestingly, Chris does not use figures in his games. He uses cardboard bases and maps, so while he will not be showing pictures of figures in action, you will get to see diagrams and thoughtful musings on the battles and the rules.
Chris's blog, called No Painting Required can be found at the following URL:
He already has a fine piece up on his refights of Maldon, so I would urge anyone interested in the ancient era to go on over and give Chris a read and a 'welcome' comment.
