"Even readers who are not into wargaming should enjoy thumbing through this 176-page, full-color book because it is so richly illustrated and beautifully presented. Wonderfully painted figures appear in varied battle scenarios throughout. Writing in a reader-friendly manner, the author details how miniature armies can be deployed to re-create an entire famous battle or to simply enjoy a relaxing game with friends across a tabletop. The superb photos are complemented by nicely done captions that help explain the core rules further. A reader should be ready to muster an army, move, shoot and resolve the outcome of combat in no time flat. High production values obviously went into creating this hardcover book. "War & Conquest” is informative and a graphic treat to peruse, making it a useful and colorful asset in any enthusiast's library. "

"…really beautifully made book. It is hardbound and very sturdy… lots of glossy pictures of nicely painted figures showing the troop movements; instead of the old school way of showing black and white box diagrams…. I really can't say enough about this book. It is written by Rob Broom and the design and layout were done by Pete Borlace, both of whom worked at Games Workshop on some of the Warhammer projects. As a result, they know what they are talking about when they put these rules together. …I especially like was how everything is supported on their website. You can buy the books or sets with soldiers and rules, go to the forum and communicate with other players on battles, or get worksheets and things that other players have done to help with the flow of the game.”
