Clearing the Welsh borders 1067 : Lion Rampant

I recently had the pleasure of introducing a new member to the Dungeon crew as I have discovered a fellow gamer in the office at work. This allowed us to plan a long lunch (I luckily live quite near the office) and play lion rampant. A couple of shots of an enjoyable game.

Our simple scenario has the Normans attempting to clear a small Welsh village.

 The Normans attack from the right, the Welsh attempt to hold the village.
This could have been the decisive moment in the battle where the Welsh light Cavalry (Yeoman Cavalry) catch the out numbered Norman Knights off guard .....but it didn't work and the Normans added another small village to their conquored lands.

A fun game and with the prospect of more lunchtime gaming a new world has opened up. My mind already races to campaigns and rule sets which allow us to play a meaningful game in an hour.

  4. The Wargaming Diet - Cut out your Noontime meal and actively roll some dice, in next to no time you'll be losing those pounds (out of your bank balance, as you buy more kit) :))

    Another reason why I really should get myself a proper job!
