Lion Rampant

The latest rule book from Osprey Publishing dropped through the letterbox this weekend. Lion Rampant is a set of medieval large skirmish rules written by my chum Dan Mersey. Dan's previous rules for Osprey were Dux Bellorum which remains one of my favourites.

Lion Rampant looks excellent. I have avoided medievals in the past but these look sure to start a project or two. Most likely seems to be Glyndwr's revolt with late C13th Welsh vs English/Flemish forces or an imagination Italian Wars setting with two rival city states pinching each others taxes and raiding each others borders.

The former project will probably wait upon the Perries releasing their HYW plastics, the second could be done with the WOtR and European Mercenaries Perry plastics.
...and there are also those 3rd Crusade figures I started and never finished...

I look forward to reading about your games and your thoughts on the rules. Osprey generally do excellent rulesets.

Nice! I'm looking forward to getting a copy myself. BTW, Black Tree Designs has a sale going on until midnight tonight (Sunday, USA). 50% off foot and also the early-HYW mounted command pack. I ordered one - very nice look to them. The mounted packs are 25% off. Best, Dean

Infiltration missions is going to take place in really intricate levels.For infiltration-based missions, many of us normally produced more-complex layouts with additional chance of several pathways as well as numerous solutions to gameplay home units. These are the levels the location where the augmentations and gadgets truly enter in to their own. The extent designs help equally well-executed infiltration tactics a variety of player aspects and the successful recognition/avoidance of security alarms along with aggressive strategies, that lead to extremely greater foe reactions. The first instance of this kind of play that the player get each year happens in the actual Republic head office escalator lobby.
