Wouldn’t you know it? 24 hours after I buy it on Wargames Vault, Mayhem goes on sale at a 70% discount.
Anyhow, this is a great little rule set for fantasy minis. The editing of the rules isn’t very tight, but the system is quite simple, flexible, and interesting. It is DEFINITELY worth three dollars and I suggest that anyone interested in fantasy mass battles pick it up while they can at this price! (Hell, it’s worth the ten you’d normally pay.)

It has a lot to recommend it. It’s pretty slick as a system and I can see playing it with such props as metal coins, castles, etc. to fight inter-state wars in a fantasy milieu. I’m super into its potential for 3mm scale. Even if you just like to read a good set or rules for fun, it’s worth a couple of bucks to have on hand.14/08/2020 at 20:31 #142347ian pillayParticipant
Just purchased this. Seems like a bargain £2.79!

Like Thaddeus has said elsewhere, it’s not the best-edited book but the rules are super tight and have a lot of potential. They expand well for multiple armies so you could easily get a group of friends as “bannermen” and fight multi-general battles. And the rules for Strongholds are wonderful – I’m reminded of an old Dragon Magazine article about making players raise armies to capture a keep when they reach the level that they can demand a fief from their liege lord. I’ve finally got a gaming table set up so this is a real possibility for me! The potential as a mass battle supplement for an RPG campaign based around large scale warfare is quite high.14/08/2020 at 21:46 #142353
Incidentally, I’m already thinking up a quick list of “upkeep” costs for keeping an army in the field on campaign. One has in mind game props like these:14/08/2020 at 23:32 #142361
My only gripe with it so far is that the points level they suggest for the campaign game seems very small. 250 points? Hell, an elf infantry unit costs, like, 32!
I wonder how it will play with 5000 points on the table?

By command units, you mean the number of units that can be given an advance order?
