Great Battles Hex Rules


Great Battles are a set of wargame rules that utilise hexes to regulate movement, firing, ranges, line of sight as well as charge and firing arcs.

Battles are fought over a mat or tiles with 2" hexes that are used to regulate movement, firing, facings and ranges. The game mechanics allow for large numbers of units to be represented, each by a single stand of infantry, cavalry or artillery.

The rulebook contains troop listings for all of the major Napoleonic armies and a sample order of battle for Dennewitz, the playtest battle report for that game can be seen by visiting the link below.

The Great Battles Rules are available as a PDF from the shopping cart.
