Clash of Empires is the tabletop wargaming rules for battles from deepest antiquity to the Medieval era using armies of model soldiers.

Game Rules
Complete rules on how to play including clear diagrams and tactical tips. The game rules cover the organization of units, movement, manoeuvre, orders, shooting, hand-to-hand combat and morale.

Advanced Rules
The advanced rules cover different weapon types, skirmishers, chariots, elephants and artillery. Unit special rules detail different formations and fighting styles used by soldiers throughout history such as the powerful phalanx, the short sword expertise of the Roman legionary and the feigned flight tactic of nomadic horsemen. The Generals and commanders section shows how these characters influence the battle and affect the morale and discipline of their troops.

Armies of Antiquity
Clash of Empires is filled with beautifully painted miniatures and armies throughout the book. Included is a section on setting up a game, including elements such as strategy rating, flanking marches and victory points. Each of the four scenarios are presented with guides on the forces available, terrain placement, army deployment and victory conditions.
