Designed to recreate actual battles, 'In Deo Veritas' focuses on the command decisions needed to maintain the motivation of the army. The six actual battle scenarios provide a range of different challenges from the warfare of the seventeenth century.
Battles are played at the brigade level with all major elements are on 75mm/3" wide bases. Using smaller scale figures (6-15mm) lets players give their units a realistic feel. The ground scale of 1" = 40yds means the typical 6ft x 4 ft table is large enough to accommodate most battles of the period.
Most players will already have everything needed to play (d6, tape measure and a deck of cards). More scenarios and game support will become available on the Helion Wargames Facebook page.
To learn the rules will take 2 hours or so using some of the smaller battles. Once you have become familiar with the core elements then your games will flow more quickly and a larger battle such as Wittstock should last for 3-4 hours depending on the arrival of the reinforcements!
Nothing is certain; but generals that hone their skills are more likely to be victorious.
