Rules Central


This is the central point for the new rules, lists and a reference to any supplements we may produce.  Background on how Antares 2 came about and its links with Warlord Games and Skytrex is outlined in this news article.

In Antares 2, we have split the main rules into four separate sections: Core Rules, Playing the Game, Arms & Equipment, and the Guide to the Universe. On top of this, are the individual army lists. All are free to download PDFs and all are in black-and-white/grayscale to help with home printing. We have also added a full colour Universe guide as it has the most images and is the least likely to be printed off!

The FAQs and updates, including those amendments (all minor) for the Nov 22 update can eb found on the FAQ/Errata page. We also have an article for v1 players that explains what’s new in Antares 2.

The free PDF Army Lists. Each contains the unique equipment and weaponry rules, plus special options, unit definitions, selectors, summary of Army Options, a weapons quick ref and a Special Rules quick ref for the faction.
