My friends Bob Carter and Alex Testo of DBN Napoleonic Wargaming have just released a new set of rules for gaming WWI in the Middle east. Being a WWI fan I was delighted to see them, as I am a dedicated fan of their Napoleonic rules, DBN. I have in my library their DBN and DBACW rues, and am happy to be adding these as well. If you know the quality of their other rules you will understand why.
I’ve only had a chance to look at them, but as usual they look very complete, and I was anxious to share the news. The Middle East is a popular theater for WWI, and these rules encompass more than just the Australians and Ottomans, covering it looks like all of the forces involved.
For me a picture is worth a thousand words, so I wrote Bob and asked if he had any photos he could share with me. He did and here are a few to give you a flavor for the game. Looks like Bob games them in 10 MM, while I will stay with my usual 15 MM, in which case I will be using less figures per element.
If you are interested, the rules can be ordered from their web site. Here’s the link
