Do You Have What It Takes To Be A Captain Or King?

September 18, 2014 by stvitusdancern

Two Hour Wargames has released a new medieval warfare ruleset called Captains and Kings.

Captains and Kings

In this game you play armies from the 9th to 13th century, so all that sword fighting and armour bashing can commence. This ruleset includes rules to play solo, on the same side or opposing armies, this gives some nice options when you may be limited to having someone to play against. The game is based on a stand of 6-12 miniatures equates to 40 to 60 soldiers and is a warband style game where they consider 100 miniatures a side as a large game. There are campaigns for settings in the Kingdom of Jerusalem and Danish raids on England and Ireland.   Also, for those of you who love to make their enemy suffer, there are complete rules for siege warfare. They do not say as to what scale this rule set was designed for, hopefully it is scalable. The rulebook is available as a pdf download or as a printed copy. Being one that loves games rulebooks, I might just have to grab a copy.
