A set of rules which allow historical re-fights as well as one off battles with loads of options for armies, none of which overload the player.
Having played WRG rules for a long time I stopped playing DBM when it got to complex with two many additions to add in.
Picked up DBMM and enjoyed playing it, however there were a few things which didn't seem to work well for me and my friends.
This new version picks up on those and other points, and makes the rules easier to read and understand.

I look forward to many years of games with these much improved and better produced rules, with the few people locally I play with.

Once ordered I received them in 3 working days.
.

Thanks to P B for all his hard work over the years to make the hobby more historical and playable.

Ignore the review by D A Daly

This is very good set of war games rules for ancients gaming, no rules set is perfect, but this rules set is much, much better than most, and certainly that of the nearest competitor...

One D6 decides everything, so you don't need buckets of dice like some other rules, this forces decision making to be decisive, as you cannot move everything...

No game is the same, and with stratagems thrown in, you can play (historical) tricks on your opponents, to add even more variety.

Games are typically over in 2 to 3 hours, and tend to reward skill and cunning, don't think you can just pile troops in and win...

Combat is again decided by one D6 (plus or minus some factors like ranks, or overlaps) and the quality of your troops, and what they do.

The rules have a mere four army list books covering 3000 BC to the 15th century, (the nearest competitor rules set requires you to buy many more) and in these hard times this works in this rules sets favour, unless you want to buy over a dozen army lists just for the nice pictures.

To sum up, you get an exciting game, that plays to a close in two to three hours, with plenty of variety, plus a friendly support group on Yahoo...

Without doubt the best ancient military simulation rules on the market today. Based upon decades of historical research by amongst others noted academics, these rules together with the companion sets of army lists, are a must for any serious, discerning wargamer.

this rules book is rubbish, ive been playing wargames since i was a child and this is just a word to the wise, you could make up better rules on the back of a matchbox
