POLEMOS GREAT NORTHERN WAR: Grand Battle Rules

POLEMOS GREAT NORTHERN WAR: Grand Battle Rules Designed for large battles at brigade level in either 6mm, 10mm or 15mm scale that you can play in an evening. Includes army lists and scenarios. The emphasis is on the Great Northern War but other actions from this period can also be fought, including wars against the Ottoman Empire, Polish Civil War, and other actions in the period 1695 to 1725. You can be Peter the Great of Russia and face the cream of what was probably the best army in the world of this period – Charles XII's Swedish army. Perhaps instead you could, as Peter, battle the Ottomans on the River Prut. $36.00 USD
