The AVGVSTVS to AVRELIAN Blog

A Possible Development

As you may have seen from my main blog, I am re-starting a project to wargame Pyrrhus' campaigns in Italy. After a lot of mental 'thrashing around' I have decided to use a modified version of AVGVSTVS to AVRELIAN as rules for this project. It seemed to make more sense to adapt my own rules rather than someone else's! It is possible that they may become a 'commercial' product at some unspecified time in the future. How 'general' the rules become will depend on my enthusiasm - the initial plan is simply to write rules to allow me to fight battler from this one campaign. I may, later, branch out into the Punic Wars, in which case the rules would get a bit more general. My friend and fellow-conspirator, Richard, would like a set for fighting the warts of the Diadochi, so we may, eventually, end up with a more general set of rules for 'Hellenistic' wars.
