  1. Finished reading the rules today and just wanted to give some praise. Everything I hoped they would be and more (Giants flinging miniauters, way cool). Can’t wait to play my first game.

    Also, excellent price on the PDF.

  2. Thanks Charles!

    I’m glad you enjoyed the read, and as I recall, ‘someone’ suggested a a similar price right here on the blog. 😉

    I can’t wait to hear what you think after you get a couple of games in.

    After some plays, don’t forget to rate the game!

  3. I just finished reading the preview pages at the wargame vault. I like what I’ve read so far. I do have a question before I commit. Would it be possible to use Havoc with 15mm stands, like dba/hott/mighty armies, instead of individually based miniatures?

    Thanks

  4. Absolutely Ken. You can play pretty much any scale you want.

    The formation system works really well at this level to simulate ‘grand maneuvering’.
    You can even mix 15mm stands with individually based 15mm models to represent elite combatants or ‘Named’ models.

    If you have any other questions, then don’t hesitate to ask!

  5. So for 15 mm miniatures in groups, what would you use for a base size. The bases all have to be round, right? I reading through the rules now and they are very well written (aside from a handful of very minor typos). I’m excited to get it to the table although I am quite new to war games myself.

  6. Bradford, welcome to wargaming!

    I’m glad to hear that you are liking the rules. Round bases work best due to the way that formations and melee function. If you already have models based for another game, then there are multiple ways to work with those.

    For 15mm in the fashion you’re describing, I would suggest the following:
    Normal: 30-40mm
    Large: 40-50mm
    Chariot: 40mm square
    Giant: 40-50mm

    Using the larger base sizes in each category will give you a little more space to play with and the ability to create mini vignettes if you like.

    For infantry, you could place a number of models on the base that is equal to the MAD value for that model type if you were looking to mix form with function.

    For ‘Named’ infantry, you could mount an individual model on it’s own base (pennies work nicely).

    As always, don’t hesitate to ask any questions!

  7. That’s how I base my Mighty Armies minis.
