1 Deluxe SPQR Ausculum Setup for Vassal Mod v2.5
This save game file incorporates the SPQR Deluxe changes to this scenario. The setup included in the Vassal 2.5 version Module uses the original 'Pyrrhic Victory' setup. Note: The Epirote player has some freedom of setup for his Skirmish line units. Modify this as desired before beginning.

8 The battle of Trasimeno, 217 B.C.
Sending files to an old project on the battle of Trasimene, 217 BC. The GMT, for business reasons, will not publish such a scenario, so I decided to offer this little work to lovers of the system. The optional rule on the reinforcement of the Roman cavalry was suggested by Dan Fournie. The file is in Italian, but the placings and the optional rules are easy to understand. In any case, I'm preparing an English translation. I assume all responsibility for imperfections. Interested players can request the file of the map a bit heavy ......: gceccoli@omniway.sm

3 GBoH Unofficial DYO Battles Rules and Army/Leader Lists v1996
This zip file contains PDF and Excel files for the unofficial GBoH Competition Play rules and army/leader lists I designed back in 1996 (which is why the version number is 1996). The Excel files contain all the formulas needed so players may update this list as they wish. I will not be maintaining this list.

15 Rule Comparisons with Alexander and Caesar V1.1
The GBoH has a different ruleset for each Module. But many of the rules are the same. This chart is meant to summerise those "finer points" that I often get confused between the modules Alexander, SPQR and Caesar:Conquest of Gaul. Hopefully you will find this helpful as you alternate your play between these Modules. v1.1 More added courtesy of Ralph Shelton
