A flexible, fast-playing set of miniatures rules. An army consists of 12 units (called "elements"), classified as Blades, Warband, Knights and so forth. The rules are very simple (and can actually fit on one sheet of paper) but nevertheless pretty effective.
A simple ruler for DBA 3.0 using 15mm figures. It includes troop movement rates and shooting distances.
The zip file includes PDFs for a single ruler and also 4 rulers formatted for A4 paper (should work for Letter paper too, providing you specify no shrink to fit).

I think the most comprehensive QRS around: it took a while!
There are four versions of DBA widely played today, DBAOL the online game based on a mixture of 1st and 2nd edition rules, DBA2 the second edition, WAD+ the house rules version of the Washington Area DBA group, and SLB2013 a pre-release version of the long delayed 3rd edition rules. These are quick reference sheets for each version with colour coding to indicate where rules differ between versions.
Part 2 of the GELIDIS rules has all the movement and combat rules, for each troop type, grouped together. The commander of knights or elephants or war wagons now needeth not to hunt through rulebook - everything relevant on one page is.
Only the part of DBA rules needed for someone to _sit down and play_ - the army lists, terrain setting up procedure, figure basing, etc, is left out.
Formatted to be printed on 8.5x11 paper, in 12-point-type, lines broken to help make Mr. Barker's grammar understandable and easier to read.
By the Greater East Lansdowne Invitational DBA Instructional Seminar ('Gelidis' = Latin for 'cold water')
v.4.0 minor housekeeping, added shoot representation on war wagon and added HOTT units!
v.2.0 tweaked so that all units and extras get printed out in the print safe area and combat factors darkened up so that they print legibly.
v. 1.0 this is a PSD file that can be edited in photoshop or free apps like GIMP. it basically contains EVERY dba unit (if you take away names, there are only like 21 of them) on the correct base size and allows you to quickly setup and print your army by hiding and showing the correct layers. sounds harder than it is. anyway, it is completely free for your enjoyment, modification (for dbm or hott or whatever). enjoy!
