The March of Eagles fast play rule set

We commissioned Barry Hilton, League of Augsburg, to write a set of fast play Napoleonic rules. The rules are quick to learn, very realistic, extremely bloody and a game can easily be played within an evening. At present we are only publishing rules for infantry combat but we will be releasing supplements to cover artillery and cavalry.

These March of Eagles rules are included in each box of Victrix figures along with lots of cut out counters that are an aid to the rules. We have also included a very useful set of measuring devices within the sprue frame. 

The March of Eagles fast play rule set is also available as a free pdf download in A6 and A4 formats. Simply right click the appropriate link below and 'save as':

THE MARCH OF EAGLES A6.pdf or THE MARCH OF EAGLES A4.pdf (A4 coming soon)
