Test of Resolve is a new set of rules (just released May 2021) for miniature wargames set in the era of the Wars of the Roses.

Test of Resolve successfully achieves the following design criteria :

The rules reflect and encourage the nature of warfare in this period.

Games are playable with figure sizes up to 28mm.

Games are able to be completed in an evening from 1 to less than 3 hours, depending on the scale of the engagement.

Historical scenarios are playable on a 180 x120cm (6' x 4') table with 28mm figures (and, of course, smaller scale ones).

Any historical (or fictitious) scenario has a high degree of replayability.

The rules are very suitable for solo play and for multiplayer gaming.

The gaming experience is fun!

The rules also cover:
Continental & Irish mercenaries
Unreliable Commanders and Identity Confusion

Comprehensive terrain rules, particularly defensive positions, towns & rivers

We seem to be seeing a few WoTR rulesets coming out. They make interesting reading; I'll have to pick these up at some stage thumbs up
