Britain's Dark Ages, from the middle of the 4th century to the end of the 8th, were a time of violence and warfare, when powerful warlords such as the fabled King Arthur gathered armies and sought to carve out their own kingdoms. With Dux Bellorum, players can take on the role of these warlords, raise their own warbands, and command their forces on the tabletop. Written by an experienced wargamer and Arthurian historian, Dux Bellorum offers fast-paced games and has an easy-to-learn, but tactically rewarding, element-based system, with each base of figures representing about 50 fighting men. Players may choose from a number of different armies, including the Romano-British, Picts, Saxons or Irish, and may also select from a number of army-specific strategies and tactics to give them an unexpected edge in battle. A completely self-contained gaming system, compatible with any figure scale, Dux Bellorum is perfect for players who are looking to wargame the battles of the Dark Ages.
