The intent behind them is to achieve the following goals;
  1. To gain realistic and believable battle results using the medium of tabletop miniature model figurines.
  2. To have effective and efficient game mechanics that enables fast play with goal 1 as a prime directive, especially those like myself who are ‘time challenged’.
  3. To retain some familiarity with existing sets allowing a painless trial and/or transition, e.g. no re-basing of troops is required.
  4. To be flexible, allowing players to experiment and originate battle tactics etc., within the physics of ancient command control and troop characteristics.
  5. Above all the game must be enjoyable to play.

These rules were originally written for use with the 25mm scale. However, not all want to, or wish to use 25mm as a matter of economics, space or preference. With slight adjustment this version enables you the use of the 15mm and 6mm scales.

These rules maintain full compatibility with other major rule sets when basing and organising your troops.
