The fantasy version of Laserblade sci-fi skirmish rules is nice but in my opinion, close combat and above all, ranged combat, are too deadly. This is good for a sci-fi skirmish set, where characters usually run for cover and close combat is relatively rare, but in a fantasy game, bows etc should be less deadly and hand to hand should be a bit more detailed. Anyway if you want a set of very simple rules, maybe for a campaign with multiple games linked, it can be the ideal set of rules. Some special abilities could probably used in the Laserblade rules too, and the Magic rules are a good add-on to the system. I give only 3 stars because I really think that the way combat is resolved could be improved.

A good introductory set of rules for miniature battles with a few figures per side. The book is clearly written and well organized, with useful pictures and examples.

The author's evolution of this skirmish system from Alien Worlds to LaserBlade to BattleBlade has brought a unique sophistication to the game system without sacrificing quick play and more importantly fun. System is fast from party creation to scenario play and lends itself to single-session, linked-secenario campaign play. The structure of all three games in this system allows players or run wild with house rules that tweak game play to their vision with little to no playability sacrifice.
