Battle Axe, Free Rules and Starter Kit

ZIP File

Battle Axe is a simple to play tabletop system for skirmish level battles.  Using cards instead of dice, you will find the game to be less luck based and much more tactical in nature.  The rules and cards provide here will be enough to get you started, and new characters and rule expansions are on the way so you can continue to increase both the size and composition of your War Bands.

Note that the cards offered with this free version of the game are very basic in nature.  If you want nice cards, with full color art, then you will have to buy the deluxe system and the different card sets which are offered for sell at several sites on line.

This deluxe set offers you the following

* Full color, detailed rule with plenty of examples and diagram to highlight important concepts.

* Combat Charts

* Free samples of a 60 card Fate deck, character cards and more

Links for a free download of the Elven and Goblin War Host, a $14 dolor value for free.

So don’t wait, get on board the band wagon and wage war with your friends

This is a nice take on rules for a miniature based wargame - for the price you can't go wrong. There is the issue of all the printing that is required to make the product, but that is part and parcel of downloadable PDFs... [...]

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.
