The scenario was the English raid on the French port during the Hundred Years War c.1350. English were to burn, and the French to save the town and ships. Simple. Three retinues aside. I volunteered to take the weakest of the French contingents with most of the militia. My usual ugly die rolling with help might with the effect....

I think the English won on points but were to be soon killed or captured eventually, which apparently was the historic outcome.
The Lion Rampant ruleset is very much enhanced by a good scenario as the rules are simple so as to make the victory conditions all that more interesting. Kevin has found his ruleset after many years of looking and can now use his vast collection to full effect. And perhaps I have too.
