Fantasy Wargaming

This book includes an introduction to role-playing games, a history of fantasy wargaming, and introductory material on purchasing and painting miniatures. The heart of the book, however, is the set of mass combat rules provided. This system allows for epic-scale combat, individual heroic figures, wizards and magic, monsters, written orders, sieges and campaigns. The final chapters describe how to create your own fantasy world, then provide an example of such a creation.
