It has just arrived at home. The components quality is very good. The author, Iván Cáceres, is also the art and graphics maker and I like a lot his work on the game. Most of the rules include a historical explanation and the personalities and leaders of both sides have a small biography. It really seems a labour of love with great attention to details.

I played only one test game and I was surprised with the easiness that the rules are transferred to the gameplay. Blocks and limited actions from the cards give the uncertainty of the fog of war. There are some specific cards for each side to portray the historical events. The battle is asymmetric and it is well represented. The different leader abilities give advantages to their troops, but at the price of putting them in front of the action and risking injury or even death.

I'm going to play a bit more before giving a rate, but by now it seems a pretty solid wargame.
