DBMM rulebookHussite Warwagons - 25mm Old Glory models based for DBMM The most popular rules used at the NSWC are DBMM and Field of Glory. We also have occasionally played some games of Shattered Lances, DBA, and maybe the odd game of Warhammer Ancient Battles. Principles of War Ancients has also been played a couple of times. Ancients is played in both 25mm & 15mm scales at our club, and 1/300 ancient armies have made rare appearances in the past.
