Corps Command Rules

Brief Description

Battle module within the Corps Command "set" of rules. Rules are intended to be fast playing and of intermediate difficulty level. A strong command control system limits players' ability to order units. Rather than simultaneous combat, the rules use an initiative system. Extensive national leader and troop type ratings. Two scenarios are included.

"These rules were designed with some care toward the gamer as I do not...ask all of you that already have figures for this glorious period to rebase. As long as both sides use the same basing for the figures, your games will be just fine."
