Here's a preview of the cover and a couple of pages from the rulebook for my Sword and Spear ancient & medieval wargames rules.

Looks like a nice presentation. : )

I received some negative feedback about the font on the cover, so I've done an alternative version of the cover and put it on the same webpage. I'd appreciate any feedback on the new cover. I think I prefer it.

Bought these, excellent ancients rules.

Played about 7 games now and can recommend them to anyone who is looking for challenging command decisions every turn from the clever activation system and then straightforward combat results.

An added bonus is that Army lists are freely available covering from the Biblical period to Medieval.

And if you don't have any figures (!) just rolling the combat dice against each other is quite fun :)
