La Guerre Des Ames (Souls Wars)

La Guerre Des Ames (Souls Wars) is a set of free wargames rules in which Angels and Demons fight for souls. The rules are in French, but if your browser operates the way mine does, it will automatically convert the text.

Fantasy Flyers Rules

Fantasy Flyers is a set of free miniatures wargames rules for aerial skirmishes. You can construct your own flyers

I think it would be a good alternate game if you own some of those old Man O'War flyers -- the Dwarf Gyrocopter, Manticore Riders, Wyvern Riders, etc. You also could use 15mm flyers (although I can't recall if I've ever seen a good variety of those), or possibly 25mm fantasy figures (but I think the distances may have to be modified for this).

Supreme Warlord: BloodLust Fantasy Rules

Bloodlust is a set of free wargames rules for fantasy battles with 15mm figures. The author writes:

SUPREME WARLORD: BLOOD LUST is a set of rules designed to create massive battles using 15 mm Historical pre-1600 castings and/or Fantasy castings.  The Blood Lust Series is an effort to get new players into historical and miniature gaming. The rules in this series will focus on combat and inflicting casualties because new players tend to understand blood flowing and the visual affect of depleting units.  Morale and command control rules are a factor but do not dominate play.

In the fantasy version, the World is in the midst of conflict dominated by several races embarking on quests of global domination.  Resistance has been fierce and costly to all sides causing the war to escalate into wars of Racial Extermination.

Ysgarth Fantasy Role Playing System

I remember Ysgarth from my role playing days in the late 1970s. The game first was published in 1979. It was one of a number of fantasy rpgs that I remember we tried before finally settling on the Warhammer Fantasy Role Play.

Ysgarth has got a pretty complex system of skills and attributes, but action is resolved on a simple d100 (that is, you roll 2d10s and read them as separate decimals)

Napoleon At Chattanooga

Napoleon at Chattanooga is a free print-and-play board game. The authors write:

Napoleon at Chattanooga (NaC) is a painstakingly-researched, meticulously accurate simulation of Napoleon’s campaign in the Tennessee Valley. It is also a two-player game of exploration and conquest in the Solar System, which is also painstaking but not necessarily accurate.
