Age of Fantasy is a miniature wargame set in a dark magical world, which is played using 28mm miniatures. The game mechanics are designed to be easy to learn but hard to master, bringing engaging fantasy battles for new and experienced players alike.

This rulebook adds lots of extra content to the core rules, providing you with countless hours of epic fantasy battles that you can customize however you like. The rules are written to be concise and to the point, and come with beautiful illustrations as well as helpful example diagrams.

Here's everything that's included in this rulebook:

  • Core Rules
  • Advanced Rules
    • Terrain Placement
    • Deployment Styles
    • Extra Missions
    • Side-Missions
    • Extra Actions
    • Solid Buildings
    • Random Events
    • Battlefield Conditions
    • Terrain & Objective Effects
  • Total Conversions
    • Fog of War
    • Brutal Damage
    • Command Points
    • Fatigue
    • Multiplayer Games
    • Apocalyptic Games
    • Kitchen Table Games
    • Small-Scales & Multi-Basing

Note that all of the army books are available for free on our website, and are not part of this rulebook. If any updates are made to the rules, then this version of the rulebook will also be updated (we'll send you a message to let you know).

What is the difference between Age of Fantasy & Age of Fantasy: Regiments?

I ask as their descriptions sound exactly he same. Is ‘Regiments’ just the new name for the Age of Fantasy ruleset?

AoF is played with round bases and loose formations, AoF:R is played with square bases and rank&file formations.

Age of Fantasy: Skirmish is for small battles with 5-10 models per side, whilst Age of Fantasy is for big battles with 40-50 models per side.

The rules seem identical to Grimdark Future...other than army lists are there any real differences I’m missing?

They are similar system based off the same core engine. The main differences are in the special rules (Grimdark Future has things like Aircraft, Age of Fantasy has things like Phalanx), and in some of the Advanced Rules (like Fatigue). That being said, the army lists definitely make a big difference in how the game is played.

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.
