I have heaps of armies and instead of getting deeper, I have decided to take my hobby broader. This looking at all the game forums on wargamerau.. here leads my problem.... what it DBx???? I have been looking for the past week with no real answer and a lot of pretty rubbish websites...
e.g. Rules, Minitures, etc
anything would be awesome!
DBx is the unofficial name given to a bunch of games rules with various names;
DBA - Original quick play ancients
DBM - the expansion of the above into a big game system
DBR - the renaissance version of DBM
and probably a few others. Hordes of the Things (HOTT) is a fantasy version based on DBA. I think there is also DBF.
If you want a Warhammer type game where every figures fights, then look the other way. If you like an abstract system using blocks of troops as the basis, that fits a wide range of eras and like rules lawyering then have a look.
I don't like them but the DBx series does have a large international following.
Oh and scales; 15mm and 28mm are probably the most common but there are also people that play in 1-72 plastics.
