Lion Rampant (or is it Raven?)
We had 4 new players trying it. They picked up the rules within a couple turns. It was quick, it was bloody, and a lot of fun.
Guy called up his servants and retainers led by Sir Gregory the Cautious and rode to met the invaders.
By the time Guy got his men on the field, Hrothgar had most of his men near the helpless village. He immediately lost several men from his household guard from arrows launched from Viking bidowers in the trees. But luckily, Gregory had men in the village formed up in shieldwall. They sent two Viking bands to Valhalla.
But, for as many Vikings as Gregory killed, Guy was losing too.
As night fell (you play this scenario until 5 bands are left on the table), it appeared to be a draw.
A great game. As many miniatures I own for the period, I see much painting in my future.
