In Deo Veritas: Fast Play Rules for Exciting 17th Century Battles in Smaller Scales

In Deo Veritas

Designed to recreate actual battles, In Deo Veritas focuses on the command decisions needed to maintain the motivation of the army. The six actual battle scenarios provide a range of different challenges from the warfare of the 17th Century.

Battles are played at the brigade level, with all major elements on 75mm/3" wide bases (although as long as both sides have the same base dimensions, it isn't that crucial). Using smaller scale figures (6-15mm) lets players give their units a realistic feel. The ground scale of 1" = 40 yards means the typical 6 ft x 4 ft table is large enough to accommodate most battles of the period.

Most players will already have everything needed to play (d6, tape measure, and a deck of cards). More scenarios and game support will become available on the Helion Wargames Facebook page.

To learn the rules will take two hours or so using some of the smaller battles. Once you have become familiar with the core elements, then your games will flow more quickly and a larger battle such as Wittstock should last for three to four hours (depending on the arrival of the reinforcements!).

Nothing is certain; but generals that hone their skills are more likely to be victorious.
