Dark Age Skirmish Rules

I use my own rule set, which was published a while back in Practical Wargamer, however, it has been improved and speeded up since then. It is suitable for Medieval skirmishes, too.

These rules are designed for use with 25mm or 15mm figures - the latter are more in scale, but 25mm look nicer for skirmish games.

Ground scale is 1cm:1 metre (1:100)

Each turn is 2 seconds, but as with most of these games, the time scale is somewhat elastic, and it can be assumed that there is a lot of crouching in the bushes going on.
