Goblins vs. Bromans: More Desert

The last time we looked at Dragon Rampant, we looked at how NOT to use Light Riders. Specifically, we learned that their speed was negated by heavily terrain laden tables. Today we check the null hypothesis, and throw them against the same foes, but this time with no mission...

Dark Elves

Splintered Light is such a good miniature wargame company.  Clean scuplts with just the right amount of detail, tons of character, and so many options.  Today I’m bragging about my Dark Elf army for Dragon Rampant. Some time ago, I ordered the guys on the left.  Only painted six...

Bromans vs. Goblins: Desert Raid

Dragon rampant has a great little selection of units, all of which are based on how you use them on the battlefield. After seeing how effective Light Riders could be in the Fate of Stormbringer (poor Dubzaron), I wanted to see what a force heavy on the light cavalry...

A 15mm Figure Miscellany

Today feels like a good day to spam your attention with several hosts of 15mm painted figures.  We’ll start with the historical crowd, all of which come by way of Irregular Miniatures.  A unit of twelve light infantry for the British, with an even dozen tribesmen to match.  With...

Settling Down

After all these years of casual gaming, and 30 months of intense gaming for the channel, it feels like it’s time to jump off the shiny new treadmill. A long time ago this wargamer made the conscious decision to turn his back on the FLGS carousel, that relentless pursuit...

More Mounted Goblins

The goblin cavalry force compiled for use with the “Dragon Rampant” fantasy skirmish rules proved to be smaller than anticipated. They just don’t need a whole lot of special rules, and most cavalry units clock in at 4AP. For a standard, 24 AP game, you’ll need six units. Until...

Dragon Rampant – Orcs v Goblins

This post is largely eye-candy. An orc warband with a wizard, two giants, and three trolls – the latter two count as Elite foot in Dragon Rampant terms – makes for a very tough but largely slow force. Throw them up against a speedy army like the all-mounted goblins,...

Undead Terrain

If your undead table lacks a certain j’nais skull quoi, then you should look at herpetaraium terrain. I picked up the two skulls you see on the table here – one T-Rex and one giant sabertooth skull – from the local Wal-Market. They retail for somewhere around twelve to...

Undead Swarm Army

Our third army takes the field, and this time it’s all infantry.  Dead infantry, that is. In the war game Dragon Rampant undead can either start the game on the table, or they can be summoned by a wizard.  In addition to the figures to follow, I painted up...

Dragon Rampant Action

Tried two little experiments with Osprey’s ‘Dragon Rampant’ today. The first was playing the game with my nine-year old daughter.  Here you can see that she took command of a key hill, placing her archers within the woods – a great decision on her part. The result: She liked...
