I first picked up SWM largely to play 'Mass Battles'. Originally I figured I would either use WEG rules or modify the SWM rules to reenact larger battles that skirmish play. Now I am trying to write my own rules from the ground up. I just wanted to get a sense from the community how people are playing larger scale battles. If yo have a few moments could you comment on the following or anything else relevant to mass battle play. I am not trying to draft a survey, just interested in peoples thoughts.
What do you consider mass battle play?
How many minis are you putting on the table per side on average?
What era are you recreating?
What rules do you use?
If you are using SWM rules how do you modify them for use in mass battles?
Do you have any command or control rules that you use?
Do you maps or terrain are special rule involved?
How long does it take you to play.
