Produced by Red Wyvern Games and written by Ian Hannam they are a set of rules written for 10mm gaming and using the same 20x40 base size that WMA used. Now to cut a long story short after a couple of emails with Ian I've had the pleasure of having some of my Anglo-Saxons in the book. The production level of the book is great, Ive had a couple of read through's and tinkered with a few stands to see how situations pan out. The rules are written for use with Dark Age armies but I will hopefully get some games in the coming weeks with some early Feudal armies using Norman stats.I will post AAR and full review soon. But I can say with what I've seen so far I don't think the 10mm community will be disappointed. So without any further ado here's the link you'll need, go and give it a toot :-
Yesterday I went to the Phalanx wargames show over in St Helens, This year I went over with an old gaming mate of mine from back in the days of WFB (28mm BOO HISS), he's been out of the gaming scene for a number of years but is looking to get back gaming so Id suggested that he take a look around Phalanx to see what floats his boat. As always a nice and busy show with some decent traders. For the first time ever at a show whilst walking around I realised that a the moment I did'nt need anything!!!! I had money to spend (for once) but there was nothing that I really needed, as you know gaming a bit quiet at the moment a situation that looks as if it may get better in the coming weeks (HAZZAR!!). So other than finishing off my Scots I've not a lot to do, with this in mind I resolved to spend something. A quick toot at the Lance and Longbow stand and Id got some (Freezywater) Medieval Scots banners, then over to Kallistra for some bases whilst there I also acquired a set of their Medieval rules and army lists, I've got copies on my computer as they are a free download but you cant beat a hard copy the rule book, me and my mate got the books free from them (Thank you) and I bought the lists book. Another circuit of the hall and Id purchased a tin of black primer from Warlord Games. Then over for a quick chat with the lads at Pendraken whilst here I ordered a unit of their mid medieval knights for use in my command stands for the Scots. and with that I was done. All in all about £30 spent (pityfull!!!!). Also noticed no Magister Militum this year, which was a shame as Im tempted to do another Medieval Italian army using their figures.
As a foot note my mate went for a Teutonic army just 6 packs for now from Kallistra, he's starting off slowly with DBA 2.2 then moving up to something a bit bigger.
