The Conquest Supplement PDF
The stage is set for skirmishes featuring Vikings raiding the coasts of Europe and the Normans invading England in 1066. This supplement also enables Viking on Viking action, Later Saxon rival armies coming to blows to settle their respective Thegn or Æthling's dynastic aims, or William's ten years of conquest taking place after crowning himself King of England.
Written to be used with The Barons' War rulebook, this supplement lets us play games set during the early medieval period. It facilitates the ever-popular Vikings, the Later Saxons, and the Normans taking to the tabletop.
With the choices provided, players can create very different retinues even from the same faction lists. Having options is always a good thing for tabletop gaming, and we have added more with the introduction of Champions, specific faction traits and new abilities.
This digital supplement contains 92 pages of rules for playing Dark Ages skirmishes using The Barons' War rules, with faction lists for Vikings, Later Saxons and Normans. These lists are by no means exhaustive, and if there is a desire for more, other factions will be added as time permits. As additional factions are made available, anyone who purchases the Conquest PDF will receive a digital update for free.

The Barons' War Rulebook PDF
In the Kingdom of England by 1215, a group of powerful barons had reached breaking point due to King John's despotic rule, high taxes and failed leadership. It was time to rebel!
Written by Andy Hobday, these rules enable narrative-driven tabletop games set in an England gripped by civil war played out against the backdrop of the Magna Carter and the invasion by the Crown Prince of France.
The historically themed gameplay is fast-paced and tactical. With warriors of this period being pretty similar, it is easy to base your medieval skirmish games using these rules in any setting.
This comprehensive flick-through video by Wargames Illustrated takes you through the rulebook section by section presenting a clear overview.
[NB: This is the revised rulebook v2.1]
