Dragon Rampant Show Playtest with the Elves

Played a game of Dragon Rampant on Monday. Andy Mac and I tried out our planned scenario for the Hereward Wargame Show on 3rd Sept. We have 4 war bands of roughly 30pts each. Two Elves, one Ratkin/Skaven and one Chaos. They are converging on a woodsman's hut where said woodsman has been rumoured to possess a magical ring of some power. The winner is the player who captures the ring.

To keep things interesting, we added some 'random events' in the form of small jewels which, when contacted, trigger the arrival of 'something'... The 'something' could be a helpful thing or a hindrance...you don't know until it activates.

All in all, it worked well. We just need to deploy a bit further onto the table so the bloodshed starts more quickly!! We are also pleased to note that the whole thing has a suitably 'retro' look - quite like early 90s Warhammer, a fact helped by the 80s and 90s models and the lovely old GW cardboard Elf palace from the early 90s...

Come and see us in action on 3rd Sept at the show in Peterborough - join a war band, throw some dice and try to capture that magical ring!!

The first few pics are the last of the bunch I took the other day - for some reason they didn't airdrop to my Mac properly before...



The whole 61pts together...



Treeman vs Ratkin...

...while the Elven panzer division advances to the woodsman's hut.

Oh dear...that wasn't meant to happen!!!

Closing on the woodsman...see also the Ranger who has 'appeared' top left to help the Elves...

The Chaos horde advances...



Elf spearmen sneak round the mansion to support the advance on the woodsman's hut.

Elven knights have slain the woodsman and captured the ring...just in time!!!
