DBA Rules Cover

De Bellis Antiquitatis or DBA for short, is a rule set for playing battles of the ancient and medieval periods with miniature models. Probably its most distinctive features are a command and control system based on PIPs (the result of a 6 side dice roll), its fixed number of bases or units (12) and the obscure and difficult to read English used to write the rulebook

DBA was written by Phil Barker and first published on 1990, its latest version (2.2) was published on 2004 and it still maintains a large base of players all around the world
