DBA-RRR allows DBA to cover 1500-1700, i.e. the Renaissance, Reformation and Restoration (RRR). This is not a complete game; a set of the DBA v. 2.2 rules is required for play. DBA-RRR introduces new rules and troop types.

My Wishlist for DBA-RRR Big Base Italian War

Italian Wars 47 Existing Figures

You have gathered from my recent posts on the Reformatted DBA-RRR Spanish Army Lists and Reformatted DBA-RRR French Army List that I’m currently keen on DBA-RRR and the Italian Wars (1494-1559 AD).

I admit it also helped me internalise the lists – understand them better – with a view to perhaps tweaking them in the future.
