Hi everybody,

I just wanted to drop you a note that we have posted the play test rules for you to try out for our skirmish game Brink of Battle: Skirmish Gaming through the Ages.

You can read more about it here link

Check it out, and join the world wide play test!

I'll check out the Fantasy once I've made my way through the main book. I gotta tell ya that a miniature rule book without a single picture of a miniature is taking some getting used to. It's not a knock as the explanations are numerous and, so far, seem coherent. That and it's a rule book not a how-Thomas-Kinkade-would-paint-our-way-over-priced-minis book but a little eye candy couldn't hurt :)

You are correct Sloth1963, it is 100% rule book. It's not a hobby book, and was designed that way on purpose. My goal was to give the player 100% useful game material. There are plenty of other systems, books, tutorials, etc that show how to collect and paint miniatures.

With that said, the supplements will have photos of miniatures from our collections from numerous manufacturers. So, you'll get some fluff text, some great artwork, and some miniatures pix in our supplements, but our main rule book is the solid foundation of rules for your use.

Thanks for your business!
