Fields of Honor

The Battles, Campaigns, and Wars of the Nineteenth Century.
Fields of Honor is an innovative miniatures game system covering the military conflicts of the 19th century. This 120-page book contains everything you’ll need to fight battles, campaigns, and even entire wars. The mechanics are fast, flexible, and easy to learn, realistically covering engagements of all sizes at virtually any scale.

  • Multiple Scales. From tiny engagements like Rorke’s Drift or huge battles like the Alma, no fudging is ever required. Help Buford secure the good ground at Gettysburg, fighting the first day at company level. Find out just how valuable Buford’s sacrifice was the next day, when you play through the entire battle at brigade level.
  • Unique Terrain Marking. Slog through the marshes of Vicksburg or attempt to scale the peaks of Majuba Hill under deadly Boer musketry. Fields of Honor’s unique terrain marking sytem realistically simulates the effects – good and bad – of terrain on the battle.
  • Command and Control. Advanced rules introduce orders and communications. Plan your attack carefully before battle, because you’ll be relying on your sub-commanders to pull it off.
  • Personalities. Assign any of 18 different personality types to your sub-commanders. From Stalwart men like Chamberlain at Gettysburg to the Brash George Armstrong Custer, the men under your command will seem to come alive as you play.
  • Career Tracking. Fields of Honor includes a career tracking system that tracks your progress and logs your battles. In tournament play, this system pits players against commanders in the same experience bracket.

Fields of Honor includes complete army lists for over twenty of the 19th century’s most important wars, with simple rules for creating lists for other conflicts.
