    A set of rules allowing you to play pretty much any historical period imaginable while keeping the feel of each of the 3 periods (ancient/early modern/modern) which play differently in terms of pace and tactics. You can now buy a couple of miniatures from a range that you might be interested with a clear conscience and without feeling that you are either wasting money on models that you will never be able to play with because you have too few miniatures - or feel that you need to buy a new set of rules for each time periods. Samurai, French Indian War, War of the Roses, Napoleonic’s, Modern Warfare etc can all played with this set of rules. Build each soldier to have individual stats, equip him with traits and weapons and throw him into battle in either one off skirmish games or use the campaign mode provided in the rules. Be the leader of an angry mob of peasants in an uprising against the local medieval magnate - or command elite SAS soldiers holding their ground against Afghan... More > militia. Now while most games hold your hand and feed you content and tell you what to do, the Brink of Battle rules are very open ended, meant to be used to create the campaigns and stories that you would like to play. Look at the rules as a toolbox for your imagination. You get a very good foundation of rules that you create your own adventures and skirmish battles with.< Less

    Fantastic game. Got my demo at ConQuest and bought the book right off. Have Spetsnaz and Chechens on order and am looking forward to knocking about on the tabletop. The rule set allows you to use forces from throughout history and battle man to man. The rules are flexible enough to allow play in any era and includes a system of traits to tailor your games to each era so as to catch the flavor of the era. A campaign system allows your forces to gain experiance and become more powerful over time if you want more than just a 'one off' game. Highly recommended for both salty old veterans of wargaming and the newest recruits to the cause.
