Rampant Self-Promotion

My complimentary copy of Lion Rampant arrived in the mail today.

Picture from Osprey
This is the second time I have had the privilege to be a play-tester for Dan (and the third time for the Osprey Wargames series), and one of the suggestions I made *almost* made it to the main rules; it did make it as an optional rule which I think fits the gestalt of the rules. Here it is:


It's been quite some time since final playtest, and I am not sure how much the published rules resembles the playtest versions, but on flipping through the pages I am impressed by the eye candy of both paintings and photographs of figures in play. I have to get a game in soon. Perfect for those Red Box dwarf footmen I bought and have been meaning to paint up...

Nice one Arjun, that optional rule makes a lot of sense. Knights often ignored lesser mortals to attack their social equals.

Awesome! I look forward to reading some game reports.

Nice! I also liked the Skaven you painted up. I need to delve further into Forlorn Hope miniatures for my Oldhammer needs.

Congratulations on your contribution to these new rules. I think those lists of credits demonstrate how much of a communal hobby we're engaged in.

I've been so impressed with Dux Bellorum, that I'll probably be buying these too.

Meanwhile I'm wondering whether Knights can opt to ignore Skaven and prefer to charge crossbowmen.
