Dragon Rampant first game

I had a game of Dragon Rampant, which uses the same core rules of Lion Rampant but in fantasy style. I used my Lord of the Rings Uruk Hai against Arjen that was using some very nice old models (fantastic Troll and Barlog!)

The rules are so flexible to accomodate perfectly two very different set of models.

In this scenario the Gnolls were pillaging a Hobbit farm, they surrounded them and were getting ready to eat them all, but Saruman was actually passing by with his warband of Uruk Hai to take some of the pipe-weed this particular farm was very famous for!

Gnolls are deployed around the tall stone were all the hobbits are waiting their destiny, the forces of Saruman enter the fields from south and east.

Two! Never an order was executed with more pleasure!

But after exchanging blows is clear the Gnoll god cannot beat the Offensive Uruk

In the east, Trolls, scouts, Uruk bellicosi and Saruman are trying to get the upper hand

And the gnolls scouts are destroyed!

But they are then charged by the Trolls, and run from battlefield

In the north Uruk and Gnolls are getting ready to clash!

But the powerful wizards kills the god and is now a menace for the gnolls

A combination of spell from Saruman and charge from the Uruk and the gnolls are defeated! The hobbits (the ones that didn’t get eaten by the hungry Gnolls) are safe and Saruman can now get the pipe-weed he wanted and leave the rest of the hobbit as snacks for his Uruk hai!

This Dragon Rampant is a very nice little game, playable with any collection of fantasy miniatures and of course, historical medieval or ancient if Lion Rampant is used.

The game was very fun and quick , in less than 1,5 hours it was over. Really nice and fun!
