Just wondering what it's like really.

Cheers.

Bo5A is heavily-based on the Warmaster game engine, in particular with the random activation of units (ie. roll poorly and your troops sit and do nothing for the rest of the turn).

Right. Well I don't think I've ever even heard of Warmaster. Sounds interesting though.

Cheers chaps.
