Lion Rampant game

The groups last game for this year was a Lion Rampant game. Originally planned using our Medieval armies, until the organiser realised that we didn't have enough Medieval troops painted. With 6 players a fair number of troops are needed to keep our boys happy for a night! So out came the Dark Age armies instead.

This was the first game for most of us and as a result the scenario was relatively simple with not too many different troop types.

 An encounter game with both sides entering from opposite table sides. Three objectives, the village, the bridge and the ford in the river.
The ford. Not quite lining up with the track through the trees.

Defending the bridge.

Action around the bridge.

Crossing the ford.

The village.

By this stage the troop numbers were getting thin.

Not too many left by the end of the game.

With so much happening I am not even going to try to explain what happened, but, long story short, there were a lot of melees and in the end all commands were getting very weak and we called it a draw.

An enjoyable game with most of the guys keen to have another go and even some buying up some medieval troops for the next encounter.


  1. Looks like a proper battle is going on for sure on a great looking table.
    I am looking forward to giving these rules a go soon myself :)

  2. Looks great, usually not such a fan of individual basing and so on but looks to work in an excellent way here! :)
