Polemos Rules Question

Hi, after doing a little bit of wargaming I have decided to start doing 6mm. I'm fairly interested in either Ancients, ECW or Napoleonics and I was wondering how hard are the Polemos rules to learn and play?

Generally I either play with a few friends or sometimes alone at my house and I want some rules that are quick to learn and easy to play, do the Polemos rules fit this? 

Thanks

I have copies of ECW and SPQR.  I've tried to learn them on my own.  Overall, I believe they are very easy, but they are not (in my opinion) very traditional wargames rules. Sometimes I will read a section and think I know what it means, play the game by myself and realize it doesn't work that way, and then re-read the section.  I had to learn to take the rules quite literally.

I think the Polemos ECW rules have some fascinating concepts,e.g. when conducting a charge cavalry and their opponents use ranged combat factors to determine whether the charge will get in and what state the cavalry will be in when they contact. The large base sizes allow troops to be set out in such a way that identical numbers of pike and shot on a base can be shown to represent pike heavy, shot heavy or a 50:50 mix. There are also some fabulous Total Battle Miniatures availanble for this period in 6mm, including a complete walled town for that ECW siege you've always wanted to do.
