Nice expanson! Great new options! I like how they have made the musicians for each race totally different in their effects on the game!
And finally we have official rules for spears!

Bought for about $30. A large expansion. Human specialist units. Comes with medieval rules that restricts the Lore deck to cards that are physically possible. I have played through all of the scenarios on my own.

The expansion i was most excited about, and I was not disappointed. The new unit types add a great deal of decision making, especially when added to the Call To Arms set. Must-have.

My wife really enjoys the Medieval lore rules, as that speeds the setup time considerably without sacrificing the Lore cards. This has been our favorite expansion so far.

Another great and finally a bit bigger expansion for Battlelore. Anything that helps defeating Mounted units is in there: Arbalests, Halberds, Spearmen. Also Hornblowers add theme and new tactical options.

The historic scenarios with the toned down lore are awesome. It gives you something to build for/hope for when it seems the cards aren't going your way. This really makes me look forward to the Scot's expansion.

This is my favorite BL expansion to date. The minis in this set are regularly seen on the battle field. This set has some of the most powerful units in the game.

Also, this expansion introduced the medieval rules, which can make it easier to recruit players who are turned off by the fantasy element.

This expansion adds some much-needed variety to the foot units and, more importantly, a great "Medieval Lore" system that allows history fans to get some use out of the lore element of the game. I think this is a great addition and it seems to work very well. But why the hell would they only provide one copy of each weapon reference card (thus forcing us to go to the effort of scanning, printing, and cutting out our own second card)? And only 4 more scenarios?!? Come on - this was a great opportunity to provide a bunch more historical scenarios! And the excessive packaging and inflated price were a little sickening too. But all in all, this is another must-have expansion for those who prefer to play a strictly historical "BattleLore" and to leave the fantasy elements in the box. Game design: 4.5/5 Personal enjoyment: 4.5/5 Total: 9/10

The "medieval lore rules" provided in this expansion all players to add some of the more "realistic" lore powers (such as the Warrior's abilities) into BattleLore's historical setting. This makes the battles from the Hundred Years War setting much more interesting to play. In my opinion, these new rules enable BattleLore's historical setting to compete with C&C Ancients as the best historical game in the C&C series (especially if you "borrow" the rules for Dwarves and Goblins and use them to represent "veteran" and "green" troops). Additionally, the new specialist miniatures add some interesting new tactical options into the game. In particular, I found the Horn Blower to add some very fun choices to the game.

A solid expansion for Battlelore, this set has some great new weapons and even adds a no-magic set-up for creating "historical" battle scenarios. This one is a much better value than some of the other army boxes that have come out for the game.

This is the expansion I've been waiting for! Expanded medieval weapons options, and medieval 'Lore' rules with an adapted deck. Cracking! The new figures are terrific too. I am at something of a loss as to why AoW have only included a single unit card for each of the four new figure types, however. NOTE: expansion plays are incorporated into the main game play count.

Despite being overpackaged and overpriced, I prefer to play with 100 YW lore rules - I like the fact you can play a couple of lore cards per game but it doesn't dominate proceedings. I also like the crossbow men. Interesting, solid expansion that suits what I was looking for in Battlelore.

my first additional "box" for battlelore, I like the new units especially the crossbow men (although they routinly get pincushioned againt longbowmen BOO!) and my only complaint is that there are not enough halbardiers (surely a pretty prolific unit type during the 100 years war? english billmen?) or spearmen (again surely prolific being cheap to put in the field) do the dwarfs and goblins get many? the scots getting spearmen makes alot of sense to me)
I like the "realistic" lore rules and persoanlly much prefer them to teh originals; lore originally had teh potential to completely sway a game comparitivly easily but now its affaects are much subtler (in my opinion) the only reason I rate this an 8 as opposed to a 9 or even a 10 is because of the price to contents ratio, for what i payed for it i would like to have seen more minis or a few more terrain tiles

Nice addition, however, as many of the scenarios use the Long Bow, it would have been useful if they added the card. I know, I know--it was included in Call to Arms. Yet another reason why I do not like that expansion (which should have been part of the base game).

Adds some new nice units that are very welcome. What makes C&C Ancients so good is the variety of units and it's good that BattleLore is adding more too, but I hope there would be more of these historical human units and not goblinoids and dwarves.
