Hi

I stumbled across these rules recently and I am wondering if anyone has given them a try. They are published by Washington Grand Company and available on wargame vault.  They are dbx based and use 1/2 bw as the measurement unit. 

Combat is similar to dbx using opposed d6 die rolls, with rock, paper, scissors troop superiority mechanisms. Using the play through videos as a guide, the vast majority of combats appear to result in a pushback though once a line is breached combat can become rather bloody. 

There is an army list site supporting the rules with 655 army lists across 40 thematic categories. 

As a dbx rule set, 10mm play should not be an issue. Anybody played?

I don't know the rules myself, but this guy posts about them from time to time and is active on the Society of Ancients Forums
