Dragon Rampant - action in Middle Earth.

I had a couple of games of Daniel Merseys Dragon Rampant this week. Based on his Lion Rampant Medieval rules they give a good game.

 Aragorn faces a Reaper Demon.
 A Ringwraith leads the baddies.
 The Rohirrim.
 Men of Gondor advance in support of Aragorn.
 Some very old Medievals making up the numbers.
 Mirkwood spiders. I don't like spiders!.
And Mordor Orcs. I statted these as light foot and made them fearful which made them suitably brittle.

A good set of rules with vast potential.

Tanks again.

I'm having a lot of fun with this " old west gunfight with tanks" game. It is so rules lite, I rarely look at the rules book.

 The Panther that came in the boxed game.
 I bought a couple more Shermans to give me four.
 Barkmanns Panther brews up!.
 A StuG cops it.
 Wrecked tanks everywhere.
 Cards and tokens.
 Critical hit cards.
 I introduced the chance of bogging down to stop them whizzing through the trees.
You could play this game in any scale,  to use larger models you would only need a bigger arrow and a bigger table. Now then, I do have 1/72, 1/48 and even 1/35 scale models, hmm...
