This test is based on historical events surrounding the incursion of the Sassanid Empire in the year 459 AD; King Peroz campaign against the Huns.

Historical background, maps, photos and details of the campaign as it played out can be read at the blog.

Very interesting, and the new stepped hills look very nice. Looking forward to reading the campaign rules when finished. They appear to flow nicely and enable the linking of an evening's DBA battles.

Those gentle hills can become difficult by laying the rock pieces (as seen on the rocky ground) on top. I plan to construct larger rocky pieces to replace the smaller ones.

The revised campaign rules are complete (2 pages) but I may wish to send a few copies to play testers before uploading it to the DBA Wiki.

Thank you for the interest.

I have two more short campaign tests coming; these will be posted next week.

With each test I have to restrain myself from adding features to the basic set. Keeping them separate as page three (advanced options), might be the best way to handle this.
