AWE 10 Ancient Rules

Miniature wargame rules for 300 BC - AD 500 field battles.
This is a new miniatures gaming system with battles exclusively decided by player's decisions. There is no inherent randomness or predictable outcomes.
The game is very fast, high tension, leading to decisive battles. The learning curve is as steep as immersion is deep.
Play is unforgiving and it may be difficult to recover from poor or rash decisions.
No dice, cards, markers, bookeeping or written orders required.


- One stand = one cohort

- 40mm basing for 15mm; 80mm for 28mm

- Default table 120x90cm

- Dialog combat system

- Combat Tiles

- No randomizers

- No on table markers

- Handicap system

Requirements: rectangle templates; magnetic sheet and metal steel paper, such as those found in hobby stores.

Feel like a real general!

Does the game use a map grid or squares for movement ? Can we see a game being played ?

The game uses an asymmetric map grid with rectangles. The default small table is 120x90cm.
Each rectangle can be 10x10cm or 20x10cm (most common) or 30x10cm for 15mm miniatures. The pdf explains how to set up the map and terrain easily.
What we did for a start was to cut templates from thin carpet tiles placed over a cloth. Templates can be cut in rows.
Alternately I'm ordering complete mats from some manufacturer, so that further costumers can buy from them at regular - not custom - cost.
In BGG you can find some images of a game going on: no markers on the table is real.
Planning to do a video, as time allows.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
