When I got home from work this evening, issue 301 of Wargames Illustrated was waiting for me. The first thing I noticed was that the back cover was a Saga Battleboard for the Byzantines. Inside are the 4-page faction rules. A brief read-through of the abilities shows that the Byzantine units need to work very closely together. I'm guessing that these will be available as PDFs for downloads on the WI website in due course.
One thing that strikes me as being a little odd is that an empire which hired lots of mercenaries cannot include "Swords for hire" in their warbands.

- A mythical beast - a female wargamer! I got back into wargaming in the summer of 2011 after a very, very long break and haven't looked back since. I must admit that I seem to be more of a painter/collector than a gamer, but do hope to correct that at some point in the near future. My gaming interests span the ages, from the "Biblical" era all the way through to the far future. I enjoy games of all sizes, from a handful of figures up to major battles (see my megalomaniacally sized Choson Korean and Russian Seven Years War armies).
