Lion Rampant Revisited?


One of the regulars at the club has suggested a Lion Rampant project, using the Perry Miniatures late Hundred Years War range as the basis for some friendly skirmish games. He just happens to be French so would obviously be keen to base his retinue on the French range, while I have already had some plans way back in December to do an English retinue using the Men at Arms and Archers boxed set, as suggested by the author of the rules, Dan Mersey:

I don't know if anything will come of this but, as I already have the box of figures and some time to spend painting them in September, it may well be a worthwhile side line to explore. I have some naval and air wargaming projects lined up for the second half of the year but could squeeze this one in as well, assuming that there's enough interest in the Lion Rampant thing at the club? From initial feedback, it sounds as though they are more in favour of Dragon Rampant, which I am not really interested to be honest.

  1. I have the opposite problem, my club is into Lion Rampant big style, but I don't really have an army for it. But I do have very many Fantasy Armies for Dragon Rampant, where at present little interest is shown!

    I'm just going to have to field a Bretonnian type army for Lion and keep on trying for more fantasy.

  2. What a shame. I often find that my interests in a particular project end up going in different directions from other club wargamers but I've decided to do what I want anyway :O)
