Re: Lion Rampant Tournament


Thanks Bob.   Good of you to offer.    I have a lot of the old WI.   

After Warlord Games (or whoever commercial it is that owns them now) took them over, the content really deteriorated.  It is all about some company touting its new figure line, or a designer spouting off about his new rule set, or a glossy pictorial on a recent Con.   

I think Sylvain also hit the nail when he said the content has become much more British oriented (since that is where they get most of their advertisers from).  Yes, it was always, being a UK production, rather Brit predominant, but nowadays it is really British content ++.

Before this there were always scenarios or rules for a campaign, or a series on how to paint some army, or an actual home brew rule set, etc.  i.e useful articles to the ordinary wargamer.   Now it is just commercial flim flam by and large.

I have all the magazines back about 10-12 years (some older) if you ever want to look for something.

The Wargames Illustrated supplements is not available out of any sites, I just purchased it and scanned it :-)
This is the only WI I purchased in a long time (I have the DVDs of the first 250 editions though) as the content is too focus on British/Anzac dominions rulesets
The Siege PDF is a free PDF from one of their sites

Thanks Sylvain, I did not know about these supplements.

Hardly ever buy Wargames Illustrated anymore.   It used to be filled with useful stuff like scenarios, etc.   Now it seems more like just an advertising supplement!!

Either one is fine.
If you have the rules just make sure you follow the force composition requirements for a 24 point army.

If you don’t have the rules you can look at mine this Saturday. 

Someone had a PDF version too. Clark maybe?

We're coming up to October.
The last couple of years we have had the Lion Rampant Tournament in October.
The rules, etc are in the files section on the group forum site.

The tournament is scheduled to be on Saturday, October 27th.
Now I'm looking for a head count.  Who intends to participate?

Room for 8 players.
