Rules War :: Compilation Released

Postby vexillia » Sun Mar 13, 2016 5:15 pm

I've put together a compilation of my recent blog posts on the subject of rules in epub format.

The epub file should be useful to those of you who have a dedicated ereader or an ereader app on your phone or tablet. They can also be easily read online in a browser if you have the right extension installed.

This booklet collects a series of my blog posts together with an extract of an article I wrote for Miniature Wargames. They share a theme: the popularity of rules for 15 mm wargames in the ancient, medieval & renaissance periods amongst competition wargamers.


Whilst every wargamer knows, or thinks they know, what is popular and what isn't it's very difficult to get consistent and reliable data to illuminate this perennial debate. The five articles in this collection show just what can and can't be done using freely available public data.

I first became interested in this topic in 2007 when Field of Glory (FOG) and De Bellis Magistrorum Militum (DBMM) were vying to fill the void left by the demise of the once monolithic De Bellis Multitudinis (DBM) but solid data in this area was, and remains, remarkably difficult to find.
