Gamers World:
Free Stuff for Wargamers

For many in this hobby, the game’s the thing. Besides the figures themselves, a gamer needs historical background, rules sets, army lists, and so on. As often as we can, we will attempt to bring you free stuff for your gaming needs. Here is what we have for you so far:


The lads and I have splashed into Mantic’s fantasy naval game, Armada. I find the ship cards just a paint to manage and hugely wasteful of space. Not a big deal in 1 on 1 battles, but in a 6 or 8 player game...not so much. So I created one page trackers/rosters for the game and you can get it here or on Wargame Vault. It is a Powerpoint file you can edit as you need.

My local club has been enjoying Legends of the Old West, a rule set put out by Games Workshop about 20 years ago or so. Here is a QRS for the rules and a scenario (maybe more in future).


Here is another of my game accessories. This time it’s a QRS / Unit Roster for the Xenos Rampant science fiction rules.


Here is a new and, I hope, improved Quick Reference and troop roster for the To the Strongest rules.


The new Dragon Rampant rules are proving quite popular with the club. So here is a page with a new and improved QRS/Roster, my campaign rules, and various other things, including scenarios, to come!

I really like the core Flames of War game. But I feel some of the design choices that make it a good tournament game don’t make it a very good club game. So I have written a substantial variant I like to call Flames of AwesomeSauce. It introduces an interactive turn sequence, hidden movement, opportunity fire/overwatch and much more. You will need the rules file as well as the QRS file.

For gamers considering using Flames of War for the Spanish Civil War, here are some army lists by John Baugher (thanks John!). Files used by permission.

The well known Napoleonic rule set Grande Armee is going out of print, to be replaced by the new set, Honour. The old web site for Grande Armee has found a new home on the web here.

New! Extensive lists (with lots of photos) of manufacturers of 15 mm amphibious vehicles for World War 2. Courtesy of SeattleRed.

BattleCards for Flames of War. These attractive 3x5” unit cards put all your statistics in one place. Great for teaching the game and a nice way to organize your troops. This template includes some Russian and German cards already. You must have MS PowerPoint in order to be able to use this file.

The Column, Line & Square Archive. Thanks to the efforts of Bobby Mock, the various rules sets, scenarios, errata, etc. will all be made available here. If you can help track down any missing files or documents, please contact Bobby direct.

Fire & Discipline is a set of rules covering tactical warfare from 1740 to 1850. In fact, it is two sets, one emphasizing firepower, the other focusing on discipline. Brought to you by Rudy Scott Nelson, courtesy of his Time Portal Magazine.

Medals of Valor is our system for recreating skirmish and tactical combat during the 20th Century.  These are low intensity rules designed for fast play and fun.  We have tried to maintain a feel for realism while understanding that a comprehensive detailed system would be very slow and cumbersome.
