Osprey Publishing are going to be taking their Lion Rampant rules, made for Medieval combat, into the realm of fantasy with the announcement from Mersey Books that Dragon Rampant is coming later this year…
The cover art above is just a mock up to show off what the new book could look like but more importantly the announcement came with a whole bunch of information as to what’s different in this version of the rules…
- The core rules have stayed much the same as in Lion Rampant
- Retinues now factor in the need for heroic individuals or small bands of warriors to be a focal point of the army
- Rules for magic, flyers, the undead, and other fantasy elements have been added and have a similar complexity to the core rules
- Advice on fitting those models you have into the troop types available in Dragon Rampant – use your whole collection!
- New scenarios have also been written for this version of the rules
It will be interesting to see if this takes off as Lion Rampant has been a well loved rules set at my local store and it would be great to see this expand IF the fantasy element of the rules have been made worthy of a new book.
Do you play Lion Rampant?
