Average Rating 8 ratings This book, a full-scale revision and expansion of the rules in the original Battlesystem Fantasy Combat Supplement, gives you all the information you need to set up and play battles with miniature figures. Lavishly illustrated in full color, this book is an attractive addition to any gaming library. It was published in November About the Title. The original Battlesystem was meant to be played with or without miniatures, and so came in a box full of fold-up figures and lots and lots of army counters.

That changed with the second edition Battlesystem Miniatures Rules , which put the word "miniatures" front and center. Origins I : Four Years Later.

It came in a big box, full of expensive components — in an era before TSR regularly produced overly-stuffed boxed sets. It was clearly meant to be a big, showpiece item for TSR.

This time, they produced a much smaller product: a page paperback supplement. Origins: The Miniatures II. Ironically, TSR was in a somewhat better position to take advantage of a miniatures tie-in when 2e Battlesystem appeared.

Ral Partha released several dozen blister packs as well as a few larger boxes of miniatures. Most were generic fantasy miniatures, but there were also a number specifically associated with the Forgotten Realms, tying into Battlesystem releases such as FR "Horde Campaign" and FRQ2: "Hordes of Dragonspear" In fact, the photographed miniatures in 2e Battlesystem all depict Ral Partha figures.

Revising Battlesystem. As Niles says, the new edition has "some resemblance to the original [rules]". A few of the biggest simplifications: In 1e Battlesystem units had very extensive stats, usually laid out in a quarter-page of text. In 1e Battlesystem, combat required players to do addition, subtraction, and even multiplication — all while consulting a complex combat results table.

In 2e Battlesystem, each individual figure instead throws its own die, with the results revealing both if they hit and how well. The defenders then get to throw a huge pool of dice in return. In 1e Battlesystem, counters could represent between 2 and 10 individuals. In 2e Battlesystem, they always represent It was an understandable change given the overall evolution of roleplaying games … but it was a surprise to see this simplification while the game was simultaneously positioning itself as a standalone miniatures system.

Future History. The original Battlesystem had been extensively and coherently supplemented thanks primarily to designer Douglas Niles and editor Michael Dobson. In contrast, support for 2e Battlesystem was much more piecemeal and by a large variety of designers.

There was one major exception: The Dark Sun setting was originally called "War World", and was seen as a final chance to really push the Battlesystem game. After , the game largely faded away, through it occasionally was referenced in Dragon magazine through About the Creators. Douglas Niles was the creator of both major editions of Battlesystem.

Army Roster Sheets die-cut counters The Rulebook is divided into four parts, allowing three levels of play. The first part is an introduction. The second part, called "The Basic Game", covers the basic rules of movement and melee combat. It also introduces campaign rules that allow for integration of Battlesystem games into a role-playing campaign. Three of the scenarios form a linked campaign in a generic fantasy setting, one for each level of the game. The fourth is an advanced game scenario for Dragonlance , Battle of Qualinost.
