The Roaring Northerners are Dave Stewart, John Hill and Iain Robertson; a loose affiliation of tabletop wargamers and figure painters who inhabit the frozen and somewhat soggy wastelands of west central Scotland. Shadowy and secretive, they stoically quest to reduce the scale of the lead mountain that threatens to engulf them all, and perhaps even find the time for the occasional game...

Belated Updates! No. 3- A Game Of Lion Rampant (Or Three...)

Following Dave and I's initial foray into Lion Rampant back in October (!) John and I managed to get an unprecedented run of three games in on the bounce! No pictures were taken on the first couple of games (we were still trying to get a handle on the rules, so it was a bit clunky), but by game three, things were moving sufficiently smoothly to allow us time to get a few snaps.

The first couple of games had ended in well-fought victories for John, with my guys reverting to type and doing great hedgehog impersonations, prior to charging heroically to their now much-outnumbered doom. Could I salvage some shred of dignity in game 3, or would John make it a hat-trick?

Forgone conclusion really, I recieved another drubbing at the hands of John's well balanced force of late mediaeval English, although, to be fair to my long suffering Scots, they did add some variety to the mix by deciding this time to flee the field en-masse, rather than dying gloriously, if pointlessly, as any self-respecting mediaeval Scots force should...

Vengeance shall be mine, Hill!
