Great set of rules playable,easy to learn and really enjoyable and I'm not a big Fantasy gamer more Historical. The rule's were recommended from another gamer on the Baccus Forum glad I took the chance and ordered them CUDOS to the authors!

Sorry to say but I found this game to be wanting.

Not enough army lists and requiring too much work from the gamer to create the armies and the ones provided aren't generic enough to help the beginner.

The hex system is a pain too and though you can download rules to use standard size bases with tape measuring system instead it just doesn't seem to feel right.

There is a forum for the game but good luck if you ever get an answer to your question this side of the turn of the century (that's end of the 21st C).

If you like games where you don't have individual figures then you might like this but if you like each figure to be a 1:1 base then you'll hate this game.

The command point system makes the game a bit too much like hard work.

But take a long good look at the preview sample before you persuade yourself to buy this game. You might like it. I didn't.

This is a great alternate set of rules for fantasy miniature wargames. Because it's not tied to any specific line of minis, you can use any figures at all. The book has an extensive section on building your own units with whatever abilities you like, and a mathematical formula for determining their point value. I have yet to see a more flexible and customizable wargame system.

The rules are quick to learn for any somewhat-experienced wargamer, and they are clearly laid out. The book isn't jam-packed with art, but the artwork in it is good, and the diagrams are easy to read.

One thing I wish there was more of is additional sample armies. The book contains a number of detailed sample army sets, but with such customization abilities it would be great to see a menagerie of sample armies to rival some of the bigger publishers.

Finally, there's a lot of wonderful math and numbers to crunch, but not so much fluff text to describe what the numbers actually represent. In some ways, this is good, because in order to remain flexible the system needs to be somewhat abstract. However, the flip side to this is that beginners may have trouble constructing balanced units if they don't stick to the sample army lists.

I can see myself using this system for a very long time.

A very good job of fantasy scale tactics that allows for the use of any miniatures you happen to own.

This is a very good fantasy miniature battles game. I would like to see more support from MJ12Games on this rule set.
