Free Wargaming: The Final Frontier

Well, Mantic Games, has released the beta rules for their game Kings of War as a download on their site.I love free games, they appeal to my cheap side, and my wargamer side. That's both sides. I say, go to the site and download them. They are a pretty familiar set of rules, couldn't say why...

Given the recent release of some expensive and mind bogglingly thorough miniature wargames rules, it is kind of nice to see manufacturers of affordable minis publishing a game that is intended to be a pamphlet to go along with their box set. More refreshing still is that the rules are only 12 pages long. 15 pages if you include the army lists, which, really, you should.

Currently, they only have lists for Elves, Dwarves, and Undead. Predictably, since they only make Elves, Dwarves, and Undead miniatures. I think that it would be easy, however, to convert stats for your existing collection from 'other' games systems if you were so inclined.
