Julian Donohoe from Applecross, WA Australia
With mechanics the same as Belisarius, these rules are delightfully simple and offer enough period flavour to make the game worthwhile. The major problem being the rules are heavily stacked in favour of the Romans. Of five games played, Rome won in all but one (where the Roman's fortune deserted them)
All is not lost. We have now used the rules as a campaign base for De Bellis Antiquitatus miniatures rules. Each barbarian strength point becomes two elements of warband while each Roman point becomes an element of blade or cavalry.
Our first campaign is not yet over, but has already resulted in some nail biting table top battles.
