    Looking forward to this.. I have some of Neil’s previous books, in which the rules are brief and perhaps a little abstract. I’ve only ever played them solo and they work well. In his 19th century book there is a nice system for mini games.. scale wise think DBA.. so I am imagining that this new book will present something similar? The armies are quite fixed with random variants rather than points lists. I’m starting to build some 10mm 1848 Schleswig Holstein to this system. I imagine if you buy the book for the rules alone,  it’s going to be very much a marmite thing.

    Having receently ‘returned’ to the hobby.. I’m collecting and basing up my new Romans (28mm) for Hail Caesar as that certainly seems to be the ruleset of choice at my club. However, I used to play DBA and DBM with 15mm. DBM started to get bogged down.. but I still rate DBA as one of the best games ever 😉

    Played Neil Thomas AMW rules solo and they are quite good fun, if a little abstract (?)

    Depends on what complexity and what ‘scale’ you want to play at I guess. (Quite enjoyed WAB for Arthurian games, as it felt like a heroic big skirmish game)
