Legions of Battle Fantasy Rules

Watermarked PDF

Legions of Battle are a set of Fantasy wargame rules designed to allow you to fight epic battles between a vast array of creatures and races.

The rules themselves can be tailored to suit any fantasy setting and the game system is designed to allow you to create and field any troops that you like, limited only by your imagination and figures available. A comprehensive points system allows the design of troops as you think they should be represented.

The basic game mechanics themselves are simple to pick up and play, this allows special units, characters, abilities and magic to be added without slowing the game down to a crawl.

Alternate activation phases within a turn means that players on both sides are kept involved and the game is perfectly suited to large battles with multiple players per side.

The basing system has been designed so that fantasy armies used for other rule systems can be fielded without any need to rebase figures.

Throughout the rules you’ll find lots of examples that help to explain and clarify the game mechanics. These examples play an important part in showing how the rules work and if you are planning on fighting a battle but do not have time to read the entire book skimming these examples will give you an idea of how the games works.

The design concept pits units against each other rather than individual figures and this is reflected in the ‘mass battle’ feel that the rules have. After all 100 Goblins fighting against 80 Dwarfs is hardly an epic battle so using individual figures and skirmish game mechanics as the basis for the rules system makes little sense.

Having said that what is a Fantasy Game without an Elric, Gandalf or Conan? Characters such as Heroes or Legends, Magicians and Monsters all play their part in your army. Some are powerful enough to take on entire enemy units themselves, others controlling the battle, using their magical ability or leading units into combat.

The unit design and points system given at the end of the rules allow you to create pretty much anything you fancy. It is consistent throughout all races and units so there do not have to be official lists, no figure restrictions, no ‘must have’ super units or characters - unless you decide you want to design some yourself of course!

The rules have been designed to represent what can best be described as ‘generic fantasy’. This should allow you to customise rules and create your own fantasy settings by using Legions of Battle as a starting point. The game mechanics and troop design system are very flexible - how you use them is up to you!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
