Got together with some wargaming buddies a short time ago, Alex, Carlos and Rob, and we got in a game of Osprey's "Dragon Rampant".
It's the first time I've played these rules, but I had the guidance of the other guys who'd gamed the system before, so with their help it was fairly easy to get to grips with the core basics of the rules once we got going.
A game needs a certain amount of planning to get the balance of opposing units right and to prepare the army sheets. On this occasion the "baddies" got hammered fairly quickly so it looked like we needed to fine tune the lists and/or the scenario.
But it was a good first experience and it's always enjoyable getting together for a game and getting some minis on the table regardless.
Some pictures from the game below
Marauding bands of green/skinned orcs and goblins advance on the village
Light infantry move out to meet the enemy
Meanwhile, trolls enter the village
Light cavalry, accompanied by a sorceress rush out to meet the invaders
And finally, our "Hero" on his shining white stallion rides into the fray
And proceeds to decimate the green-skinned devils
