From the campaign:
Black Earth is a stand alone miniature wargame, with a brand new ruleset, a large collection of original miniatures and an entire fictional universe to back it up. The game is designed to simulate real time tactical combat between small armies. There are no turns in Black Earth - both players engage at all times. Apart from the narrative environment it brings to the tabletop, Black Earth is also designed to be a fully competitive game fit for organised and tournament play.
