Lion Rampant at my doorstep :)



At last did I get my pre copy of Lion Rampant, was at my doorstep yesterday.

Sins I been involved in the rulse for about two years it was a magic moment to look through the book and see what of my contributions made it to the final product and see ones name in an Osprey book was splendid:)

A greate deal of my suggestions and Ideeas had made its way in to the rules, as well as 3 of my pictures, thanks Dan, I hope it was to some help !

Still 7 days to the official release and the deadline for my Medieval Danish Hoast for Lion Rampant to be finished...the arrival of the  rulebook might have given me the final inspiration to make the deadline...

I really hope that you who decide to buy and try the Lion Rampant rules by Dan Mersey will find them as easy and amusing as we have when playtesting the game, we even have a game planed for monday evening at the club, will be nice to bring the real product instead of the playtest copys we have used lately.

I hope you all will have a good weekend !

  5. You can be very proud Michael - It's not many wargamers who get their name in an Osprey book. And what a great image they've chosen for the front by the way. Looks absolutely brilliant!
