Thanks, Guy, I have seen them. They’re fine & I was thinking of “borrowing” their 3 unit ratings rather than the 5 or 6 of other rule systems.
My rules, working title “Dragon’s Blood” obviously won’t be a commercial enterprise so I am unashamedly borrowing a fair bit from others.
An example is that I want the Warlord to be involved in melee. You can’t imagine a Dark Ages’ chieftain doing anything else. However, his death should end things so you run the risk of having a very short game indeed. So, I’ll shoe-horn in the SAGA system where if the Warlord is fighting with his bodyguard, any “hits” on him are deflected onto the figures in the bodyguard….until you run out.
I should have something good enough to play test by June/July.
