Save the Standard!

House Rules

Saving the Standard for Honor
Any time a standard bearer falls (is destroyed), a marker should be placed where the bearer fell and any other model from the same troop may explicitly approach and raise the Standard with a free action.

When the standard is “raised”, the model using the free action to raise the Standard is removed from play and the Standard Bearer model is returned to the marked spot where the bearer fell.

The Reaper Adventure Game Engine

Warlord the Miniatures Game

Warlord is the first game to use the Reaper Adventure Game Engine (R.A.G.E. for short). As a master system, R.A.G.E. allows you to learn a few basic rules and then take this knowledge with you from game setting to game setting.

Bases, Sizes and more…

Warlord the Miniatures Game

While the standard (and official tournament) rules focus around four core base sizes, there are options if you just plain don’t like square bases and not interested in playing official tournaments (official tournaments are no longer sponsored anyway).

Metric, Squares, and Hexes

Warlord 2nd Edition Rulebook – page 18:

RAGE measurements are listed in inches (indicated by closed quotes: ” ). However, for purposes of play, conversion is simple. If you choose to use the metric system or a square or hex map, just substitute centimeters, squares, or hexes for inches. While the conversion may not be precise, it is more than sufficient for play.

Now, if you want to stick to the official sizes – this table lists the official datacard sizes with SAE and metric conversions:
