Furioso Renaissance rules QRS free download

Steve Danes the author of Furioso the multiple scale renaissance period wargame has created a Quick Reference Sheet (QRS) for the game and it is our pleasure to present it here for free download.


To download the one page QRS for Furioso from our Dropbox please click HERE.

If you have not heard about Furioso it serves scales from 6mm to 15mm to 28mm for any of your period miniatures.  Focused on Renaissance Warfare in the Sixteenth Century it is a simple to learn but tactically challenging set of rules. The rules allow players to fight large scale land battles with a simple to use and enjoyable gaming system.  Players will find themselves commanding or at least trying to command the armies of the period. Players will quickly realise that some of their forces have minds of their own.  The rules themselves have a very simple system at their heart. If you want to do anything you need to roll a d6, a score of five or more will achieve success, a score of four or lower means failure. Modifiers are applied but this is to the number of dice rolled to achieve success and not the score required. Success will therefore be measured by the number of successful scores achieved. At the start of a turn, players will roll one Initiative die for each unit, better quality and motivated units will receive a bonus to this score, poor quality unit’s a deduction. Units will be activated in sequence with the highest scoring unit going first followed buy lower scoring units - and units that score zero or less won’t be doing anything! This means that play will pass from unit to unit rather than one side activating all of their units and then the opposing side activating all of theirs.  Also included in the rules is a series of random events of Hazards that cover such situations as Swiss troops striking over pay, raiding cavalry stealing an armies baggage and a whole host of other misfortunes that commonly befell armies of the period. To the rear of the rules are a number of army lists for all of the major armies of the period. Also included are unit cards for all of these units which you can copy for use. 

Go HERE to our Altuos 15mm Renaissance range where the Furioso book can be had in print and as a digital download.


The Altuos 15mm Renaissance Range has over a hundred codes including Infantry, Cavalry, Artillery and Command from Europe and also Ottoman Turkish  from 15th to 17th century.  Excellent value and single figure purchase for any 15mm system.  Go HERE.

Entire Crystal Elf Empire 28mm fantasy range released!

It is with great pride and delight that Alternative Armies re-releases the entire re-mastered CE range of High Elf codes.  The Crystal Elf Empire ruled over by the Empress Morgana.  The fore runner of the Ferach Empire of the Emperor Mordred who is with this range still only a Crown Prince. Fantastic for any 28mm fantasy system and comprising more than sixty poses of infantry, cavalry, characters and sets to choose from as packs or single figures as well as two excellent saver multitudes giving you one of everything.  


See all the CE codes on their new page of our website and select your choices from within them.  Go HERE or read on for more!

To celebrate the mighty task undertaken to get the Crystal Elf Empire back into the world we have a fantastic offer open to wargamers.  Until 30th of June 2017 we will automatically put a free CE20 Crystal Elf Knight with Lance on a barded horse, worth 4.00GBP, into any and every order placed with us which contains a CE code.  Any CE code from a single miniature to a pack to more will get the free lancer included.  No limit upon the number of orders you can place to do this.  Go HERE.

The Crystal Elf Empire


“Though outnumbered by almost every other lesser race on Valon the foot soldiers of the Crystal Empire are among the finest warriors to grace any battlefield.  In shining plate and swirling cloaks and sashes of verdant colour they are veterans of centuries of conflict.  Their smaller numbers are made up for by close ranks and cruel expressions on their noble faces.  As enemies push upon the Peacock Throne from all sides the Elves are ever more reliant upon magickes and fortifications as well as their bows, spears and swords to keep in their possession the lands of their ancestors.”


“Bedecked in finery of gold and rich purples the cavalry of the Crystal Empire is a sight to behold.  Though loath to dapple the trappings of their horses with the  mud or dust that come with campaigning the knights and lancers of the Peacock Throne will charge down without mercy upon the Undead and the despised Dracci to lethal effect.  Battle Magickes crack and boom over the heads of the riders and lessen the great odds against them.  Often led from the front by nobles and one of the Crown Princes of the Empire the cavalry of the Elves is a wondrous sight indeed.”


“The Empress Morgana has sat upon the Peacock Throne in Lyonesse for longer than the span of any mortal creatures thread of life.  Despite her great age she is a lady of beguiling beauty and fierce mind.  Heralded by tribunes as she rides the Empress wields the Power Ring, an artefact of tremendous magicke, able to rain down destruction or to re-weave the fabric of reality with just a thought.  This might is granted by degree to Elvish Sorcerers and Sorceresses for battle magicke in times of war or in court.  Armies of the Crystal Empire are led by nobles or by one of the two Crown Prince brothers the younger Mordred or the elder Marlass who are both formidable generals.”

This set of CE22 painted by Jimboba 'Warchest'.  See his BLOG.

Here is a list of the codes in the current CE Crystal Elf 28mm range.  They are grouped by type as they are on the website.  Each foot miniature is priced at 2.00GBP and most mounted at 4.00GBP with the choice of single miniature purchase or packs plus saving options for greater purchases plus two multitudes which offer 10% off and give you one of everything which is superb for skimishing or collecting.  We have pictures of all the miniatures both front and back and enlarged.  Go HERE.

Sulphur 32mm game book and small vehicles now released!

Following up on the infantry packs and characters of the first wave Alternative Armies is delighted to now release more for Sulphur II the game of post apocalyptic mayhem and creeping mists.  Go HERE now for the game book in print and as a digital download as well as small vehicles and scatter scenics or read on for more information.

Superbly detailed 32mm scale resin miniatures and vehicle kits as well as a skirmish rules system with a great setting.  Sulphur II the game is now here!


SUL1  Sulphur Game Book
SKIRMISH TABLETOP RULES FOR POST APOCALYPSE MAYHEM
A4 Staple Bound.  Colour Covers. 68 Pages

Sulphur is a set of sci-fi skirmish rules with its own extensive range of 32mm miniatures including infantry, vehicles and heroes. Sulphur has a distinctly post-apocalyptic feel to it which creates battles between rusty and improvised looking war wagons, ragged looking infantry squads, menacing heroes and satisfyingly impressive heavy weapons. The rules allow players to customise their war-wagons with their favourite weapons and equipment - and the vehicle miniatures themselves all come with a range of weapon options.  Armies will be led by a number of heroes, characterful individual warriors with their own profile and special attacks. Infantry are divided into a number of categories such as Light Infantry, Assault Infantry, Warriors and Heavy Weapons. Each infantry squad has a particular function on the battlefield which if used correctly will improve their chances of success. Players need to learn how to use these troops to their best advantage as well as how to combine them with other squads in their force for maximum efficiency and effect. For instance, using light troops to identify targets, using heavy weapons to weaken and suppress the target and then sending in the warriors to finish the enemy off at close quarters. Sounds easy? Not so in practise! 




This means that it is not just a case of the dude with the biggest gun winning the day (although the game does have plenty of big guns!). The right troops have to be used at the right time in the right way.  And beneath all of this the sinister threat from Sulphur, the insidious creeping mist and shadowy nightmares that lie within it - waiting to terrorise and devour even the bravest souls. It’s the apocalypse folks - and it’s going to get nasty!

Furioso Renaissance Warfare rules in print and download released!

Now on the Alternative Armies webstore in print and as a digital download are the great new Furioso Renaissance Wargame Rules written by Steve Danes.  These are added to our extensive 15mm miniature range for the period (15th to 17th century) and the rules can be used by any common scale of miniatures.  Go HERE.  Excellent quality and affordable.  The digital download is, as with all our digital titles, twenty percent less than the print book.


Here is a short article about the game rules written by the author which will tell you more about the system:

“Furioso is a set of wargames rules that covers European warfare in the sixteenth century. The rules allow players to fight large scale land battles with a simple to use and enjoyable gaming system. Wargaming the sixteenth century is an attractive prospect for players, it is an interesting and colourful period full of garishly dressed soldiers and colourful and exotic troop types. The period also shows signs of the beginnings of modern warfare with the introduction of the firearm and the tactical developments that went with it. Armies struggled to find a way of incorporating this new technology into traditional practises. Much time was spent experimenting and introducing new battlefield tactics - and yet the tried and tested methods of medieval warfare continued to produce spectacular victories. Few could stand against the awesome charge of the French Gendarmes nor face the ferocious onslaught of the Swiss pike-square. Despite this, warfare did evolve during this period. The arquebus and musket replaced the bow and crossbow, knights began to put aside their lances and take up the pistol.
Already the nature of pike & shot warfare that would dominate the seventeenth century was already beginning to take shape by the end of this period. Furioso is designed to re-create large scale battles such as those fought at Fornovo, Cerignola, Bicocca, Dreux, Moncontour, Clontibret, Yellow Ford, Ivry - to name but a few! 

Players will find themselves commanding or at least trying to command the armies of the period. Players will quickly realise that some of their forces have minds of their own. Gendarmes are likely to charge off at the earliest opportunity - even if this means an entirely unsuitable enemy in terrain not exactly suited to the fully armoured knight. 


Players may wish to try and soften up an enemy before unleashing their Swiss pike squares but they will rarely get the opportunity. Impatient Swiss units are likely to have closed with the enemy before a cannon shot is fired - even if that means charging across terrain that is likely to disorder their densely packed ranks. More defensive minded players can protect their armies with extensive earthworks that will disrupt the enemies attack and provide valuable cover from enemy fire. However, players may find that the enemy are not happy to wait for these constructions to be completed and will launch surprise attacks before such works are finished. And of course, in a time when increasing numbers of mercenaries where employed, players will need to make sure that sufficient care is taken to avoid last minute pay disputes, strikes, mutiny’s and all of the other trials that would complicate the lives of sixteenth century commanders. 


Furioso can be fought using any scale figures from 6mm to 28mm. The rules themselves have a very simple system at their heart. If you want to do anything you need to roll a d6, a score of five or more will achieve success, a score of four or lower means failure. Modifiers are applied but this is to the number of dice rolled to achieve success and not the score required. Success will therefore be measured by the number of successful scores achieved. At the start of a turn, players will roll one Initiative die for each unit, better quality and motivated units will receive a bonus to this score, poor quality unit’s a deduction. Units will be activated in sequence with the highest scoring unit going first followed buy lower scoring units - and units that score zero or less won’t be doing anything! This means that play will pass from unit to unit rather than one side activating all of their units and then the opposing side activating all of theirs. The result of this kind of mechanic means that players will have less control over their overall force and may find it difficult to execute a strategic plan - but in a period when many commanders would be personally leading their troops in to battle and fighting sword in hand in the front rank - that seems like an entirely realistic ambition for the period.
Also included in the rules is a series of random events of Hazards that cover such situations as Swiss troops striking over pay, raiding cavalry stealing an armies baggage and a whole host of other misfortunes that commonly befell armies of the period. To the rear of the rules are a number of army lists for all of the major armies of the period. Also included are unit cards for all of these units which you can copy for use. These will be used during the deployment phase of the battle so that opposing armies will have only a limited idea of their opponents composition and dispositions. And finally, we hope you enjoy playing these rules. Our intention with this game is to provide a fun and entertaining way to explore the tactical changes and challenges of the period with a healthy dose of ‘period-feel’ thrown in for good measure. We think this has been achieved - and we hope you agree too!” S.Danes 2017

Go HERE.   We hope you enjoy this new title and we will be following up upon the book with more codes next month including bases for your stands and starter armies as well.
