Battleground: Fantasy Warfare is a point-based miniatures game – but without the miniatures.
Battleground uses cards rather than painted models to represent your forces. This means a much lower price as well as easier transportation and setup, but don’t be fooled – this is not a “light” war game or a CCG.
Battleground is a serious war game that will challenge you at every step, from army design and deployment to tactical maneuvers and command decisions until battle’s end.
The noble soldiers of Hawkshold bring their superior training and courage to battle as they defend their lands. Your Hawk armies include a broad range of infantry, ranging from the cheap (but fragile) Peasant Mob to Great Swordsmen in heavy plate.
Your Longbow men are the most powerful archers in the game, with superior skill, power and range, forcing your enemies to advance into your ranks or die at a distance. Finally, a broad range of cavalry options means that any break in the enemy line can quickly turn into a slaughter.
As the commander of the Hawks, you can inspire your troops with Bravery, ensuring that your line holds against the most fearsome charge. Spending one command action will increase a unit’s courage by three, until such time as it rolls above its base courage during a rout check.
