The Ultimate BattleLore Rules Summaries and Reference Sheets

Reference SheetSince the last versions of the Universal Head BattleLore rules summaries and reference sheets we’ve seen quite a few additions and clarifications to the BattleLore rules.

Now at last you can download these definitive sheets safe in the knowledge that you are completely up-to-date.

Firstly, the BattleLore Rules Summary is at version 2. Not only have the first two pages (the core rules), been carefully checked and revised, but the next two pages provide you with a handy summary of the Epic rules, and the final page a summary of the Call to Arms rules.

Then, the very useful BattleLore Rules Reference has been updated to version 8. This includes all the new terrain, weapons and unit types from the specialist packs and expansions, all carefully presented on a single double-sided sheet.

Many thanks go to ColtsFan76, the tireless BattleLore fan some of you may know from the official forums, whose proofreading and suggestions have been invaluable in the making of these updates.

As usual, for best results, print out in colour on double-sided matt card, cut out and laminate.

Enjoy! Go to the Guild Downloads section for the downloads. Translated versions will be posted as soon as possible.

Update: The Reference has been updated to v8.1 with the correction of some small cosmetic errors.
