Ancient Warfare Fast Play Rules


The Fast Play rules are an outgrowth of our Ancient Warfare rules. There has always been a question of how to recruit new wargamers into the hobby as well as attract older players who have 'dropped out' for a variety of reasons. The AW rules are very complete, but they are not a simple system to learn without guidance. They also require plenty of figures, something many new gamers are not willing to commit to.

For these reasons, I have decided to write a set of 'Fast Play' rules for those players interested in battles of the ancient period.

Scale
The width of a stand represents an actual ground-scale distance of approximately 40 paces. This allows any size of figure or stand to be used in Ancient Warfare Fast Play.

Each game turn represents approximately 5-10 minutes of actual time.

Each stand of figures represents between 100 and 200 actual men and animals.

Basing
We are also using just the de facto WRG basing here - no alternate basing.
