Royal Armies of the Hyborean Age



After playing dozens of scenarios with Commands and Colors Ancients, I decided to do something different. I decided to give  Royal Armies of the Hyborean Age another go.
I bought these as a download a couple of years ago.
 Thoth Amon with a disparate and probably desperate army needs to get to a ruined temple to perform some wickedness.
 But the temple is defended by Khauranian soldiers.
 Led by the one and only Conan. There's not much point in playing these games without the main man!.
 The cavalry clash.
 Shemite archers.
 Thoth Amon advances.
 Conan has the aid of some Aesir mercenaries sweating to death in the desert sun.
 As the Khauranian infantry charge the enemy infantry fail their morale test and rout.
 Leaving a very indignant Stygian wishing his troops were not C class!.
Conan the conqueror.

  1. I bought these rules in the 70s and played maybe 1 game with them then they sat on a shelf for 40 years with the occasional perusal just because of Conan. Good to know they're in use somewhere.

  2. Great to see Conan taking the field again (and conquering). There is really useful uniform blurb in the book as well.
