Mantic Stepping Into Historical Wargaming?

As well as their being an existing fan project aimed at bringing Historical Wargaming to the Kings of War rules system we’ve been hearing whispers from the ether of a new set of rules being worked on by the Rules Committee and Mantic themselves.

We start some speculation as to how this might work and delve into some of the details we do know about at the moment.

What this does mean is that Lloyd MIGHT finally dip his toe into the realm of the Historical.

If you have Pics of Romans for Lloyd you can post them in this forum topic – click here.
