As I've stated many times, I'm a fan of companies posting the rules for their games up online for free. There's a lot of trust there, that you're going to see the rules, love the game, and then go out and buy it as well as the minis. Mantic has trust in their Kings of War: Vanguard game, and is proving it by putting the rules for it up online for free. You can get your copy now.
From the announcement:
Today we’re delighted to say that the core Kings of War: Vanguard rules are available to download from the Mantic website. Right from when we started planning Vanguard, we always wanted to get the rules out there to as many people as possible – which is why we’re currently running a half price rulebook offer on the website. However, if you want to get a taste of the rules, before the gorgeous 160-page rulebook arrives through your letterbox, then the free digital download is a great place to start.
To make things easier, we’ve also split the download into three different files: core rulebook, warband lists and a summary sheet.
