Warhammer Renaissance

Post by Bobba Looba »

As requested elsewehere, here are the rules to Warhammer Renaissance.
It's the rulesset I have been playing for the last couple of months.

Follow the link below to the main rules, and those for Dark Elves and Bretonnia.

To make this post of use to everyone, I will repeat what I said in a previous post

Warhammer Renaissance is a fanmade set of rules which is a combination of 4th/ 5th and 8th edition, with a little bit of 6th mixed in.
"A game of fantasy battles combining the atmosphere of the 1990s with the balance and clarity of the 2000s"

Some standout rules:

- Army buillding: minimum of 50% regiments, the rest is characters, war machines and monsters
- Free musician and banner bearer (for units of a decent size)
- Musicians provide better manoeuvrability. Units can make one pivot move at the beginning and at the end of their turn.
- All units can take magic banners
- There is no pre-measuring. Ranges are guessed.
- Rank bonuses at 4 models wide.
- It does have the step-up rule and units always have supporting attacks from the second rank, but enemy models touching corner to corner are not considered in base contact.
- There is no steadfast.
- The magic system is that of 4th/ 5th, including Magic Cards. The lores are different (college magic) and there are no lore attributes.
- To prevent herohammer, magic items are not as powerful as in other editions.

- Dark Elves have no Always Strike First and no Murderous Prowess

For those that are interested in the rest of the rules: the guy who wrote them makes them available through a Facebook group page (request to join):

Once there, you'll find he is in the process of updating the rules to a 2022 version
