The world of BattleLore meshes history and fantasy together - putting players in command of an array of miniature troops on the battlefields of a Medieval Europe at the outset of the Hundred Years War. The game can be played either as a purely historical game, or with the addition of magic and fantasy creatures.

Drawing on the strengths of Memoir '44, Days of Wonder's newest game takes the time-tested Command and Colors system to a new level and offers gamers of many backgrounds a chance to fight medieval battles with a dose of epic fantasy.

In this fantastical re-imagining of the Hundred Years War, French and English armies are supplemented with Goblins and Dwarves mercenaries and even some creatures like Giant Spider and Earth Elemental! Just as important as the armies you have, though, are the Lore Masters you choose to aid you: Wizards, Clerics, Warriors and Rogues can all aid you with unique powers and spells in ways role-playing gamers will find familiar.

All create an array of possibilities and tough choices that face players as they venture in the World of BattleLore.

This game is based upon Richard Borg's Command and Colors system.

Battlelore includes over 210 plastic miniatures which come unpainted. But wargamers being wargamers wondered what the game looks like with painted figures instead of just using the figures as unpainted markers.

Well the answer is, it makes the game a look a lot better. The game includes tips on how to paint the models but one thing that is not mentioned is the use of transfers. Customers have asked which transfers are suitable for use with Battlelore figures and I recommend those from the 15mm Medieval range. Anything labelled 'knight' or 'teardrop' will fit on the humans shields. The round designs are too big.
