I started work on these rules to fulfil some personal gaming criteria. I wanted rules for a small battle but not a skirmish. The command level would therefore be around the unit, rather than the division. I imagine medieval unit commanders using their initiative and experience within an overall game plan, so the player is being a succession of unit commanders with limited initiative, plus the big cheese, who has slightly more control over those around him.

Designed with 25/28mm figures in mind, but the designer says the rules adapt easily to other scales.
Bases are recommended, any size will work as long as both sides are based in the same manner.
