Bristol Big'Uns
Welcome to our forums. The Bristol Big'Uns are a group of people who enjoy fantasy, science fiction and historical wargames. We tend to play mostly table-top wargames but you will sometimes see CCGs, CMGs, RPGs or board games. If this sounds like a hobby you currently enjoy then why not come along. The club is based at Iron Acton, between Bristol and Yate, in the recently refurbished Parish Hall and is held Sunday evenings from 6 pm until 10 pm. There are tables and chairs available plus various sized scenic mats and terrain for table-top wargames. There is a 'tuck shop' happily providing crisps, chocolate and fizzy drinks plus tea and coffee at a reasonable price.

New Lion Rampant Rules

Looks like there's a new rule set covering the Crusades.

Enjoy

Re: New Lion Rampant Rules

I've not seen it on the Osprey site, and at 147+ pages, I wonder if it will be published elsewhere.

Needless to say I have a MASSIVE number of 20mm Saracens.

Cheers

Re: New Lion Rampant Rules

Looking at this further I found:

The brainchild of Dr Gianluca, to use wargames to teach history, has given birth to Lion Rampant The Crusader States. Written in conjunction with Daniel Mersey and published with support from the University of Edinburgh, the Crusader States will include 12 scenarios, that are playable individually, or you can link them together for a campaign.

Not out yet. We are awaiting shipment from the printer! It will be available from Northstar military figures and DriveThru RPG, but we will notify when it is available (hopefully soon!).

Re: New Lion Rampant Rules

Thanks for the update, John. I will be getting a copy (price permitting!) as it looks like a really good addition to the excellent Lion Rampant collection.

I did buy Outremer: Faith and Blood but it has a different approach and requires more paperwork creating and developing the characters.

Cheers

Re: New Lion Rampant Rules

After reading the description of Outremer, I never really fancied it too much and passed on it.

Cheers
