Ultimate Game Mechanics Guide: Ground Warfare (Savage Worlds)

Unlike the Ultimate Characters Guide, the Ultimate Mass Battle Guide is pretty well balanced for the most part, with the systems it adds being nice and generally not overly favoring one side or the other without very good reasons. It IS very overcomplicated for Savage Worlds (I actually have played and run GURPS with little issue;And even enjoy occasionally creating GURPS characters in my spare time; and yet I had a lot of trouble understanding how the additions to mass battles in this book are used), which means that it may defeat the purpose of Mass Battles as a way to speed up play, and will be very difficult to explain to others or even understand how to use it.

Unfortunately, this and the Ultimate Characters Guide do not give me much confidence in how this publisher handles Savage Worlds, so I will be avoiding purchasing books by them in the future.

It has good ideas that work with the Mass Combat system of the Savage Worlds core book. It add a bit more details to quantify the strength of irregular troops, especially common in a fantasy setting. And also takes into account the abilities of a Wild Card as well.

It does this without requiring a lot of tables and calculation. If you're running a quick mass combat session, you can skip the steps in this book, but if you have some prep time, then this book's contents are a welcome addition.
