We are sold on Rampant Lion!

The rules have been in our hands for a few months now, but this month is when we finally got around to trying them out. Sunday before last we had a quick play to just try the rules out and it was thumbs up all around. So this Sunday we got all the Medieval players to show up for a big game. 3 24 point retinues vs 4 18 point retinues. The attackers were to torch the Siege towers and supplies. The defenders put out 8 points to defend each of the objectives and the rest of their forces started at the edge of the table.
Various forces on both sides took a bit of time moving ( bad activation rolls) while others advanced willy nilly into the fight. The center saw knights and lords go down in a great slaughter. The defenders right was slowly forced back and the supplies taken by Lord Ryan. The Defenders on the left, overly confident decided that the best defense was a good offense. To Lord John's dismay he soon learned that Yeomen should not attack knights or bidowers in rough ground. Suddenly the best defense was a good fall back to the objective.
The Defenders eventually took out half of the Attackers and held the two towers. Boasting points were pretty even.
We're playing two more games this Weekend as well.

Looks like a fun and enjoyable game. Also goes to show that you can used both single-mounted and multiple-mounted figures at the same time without any problems.

These rules are well done and fun to play.
