The Barons' War Rulebook
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]
