My copy of Lion Rampant arrived yesterday so I had a quick game today and I have to say I’m very impressed with it. 🙂
I played a clash between Anglo-Saxons and Norman, lets say sometime in 1067.
To see how it turned out follow the link. 🙂20/09/2017 at 23:40 #71972
Great AAR and I’m glad you enjoyed the rules.

Oh no, now I need to know more about these rules. Thank’s Victoria!21/09/2017 at 15:12 #72017
Great first game!
Thanks for posting.
We’ve been playing Lion Rampant for a couple of years now off and on for Wars of the Roses, and it still has lots of mileage in it. It isn’t a purists game but we haven’t found anything that makes us think we will stop anytime soon. There has been a bit of an arms race going on however, but I have to say mounted knights have so far proved over priced for their effect.
Look forward to hearing about your experience with Lion Rampant and WotR.21/09/2017 at 15:30 #72018
Thanks for the kind comments. 🙂
Looking through my lead pile I’m surprised how many Medieval and Dark Ages figures I’ve bought and only painted a few of before moving onto the next shiny new thing, looks like I could have quite a few retinues without having to spend anything. This is definitely a good thing.
The Men Who Would Be Kings is another one I need to get, I have enough (mostly unpainted) figures for the Zulu War, Indian Mutiny and Sudan to make complete forces for both sides in each of these (with maybe a few extra figures needed to round out units, mostly cavalry).
I knew all that money I spent in the past would turn out to be a good investment one day. 🙂21/09/2017 at 23:51 #72067
Second game report is up now, this time I tried the Bloodfeud scenario.
No gaming over the weekend, babysitting time, but on Monday I should have my mounted knights based up for the Wars of the Roses so I’ll try a cavalry skirmish then hopefully. 🙂22/09/2017 at 00:49 #72068
Another good AAR thanks, Victoria!22/09/2017 at 23:57 #72146
I read some reviews of the rules, not sure I want to get them after all. All my Normans Vikings and Saxons are based for DBA/M and I don’t want to rebase.23/09/2017 at 15:19 #72198
Kyoteblue – don’t let that put you off at all!
I will quote briefly:
‘If your collection includes multiple models on a communal base, you can still play Lion Rampant without much * difficulty: just be prepared to to ignore the direction the models are actually facing, and think of them as a blob of troops with no flanks or rear. You’ll also need to mark casualties as they occur (small dice are a discreet way of doing so).’
I have played with mounted Impetus units filling in while I painted up some WotR cavalry without any problem, other than the usual one of the way I play!

Two excellent AAR’s Victoria, thanks for sharing. I am currently reading through mine (been away at Bristol for a few days), they are very easy read.
