After a quick read through looks good Rob and I am in.

As my Dragon will be my army general you can still go dragon slaying!

Ok, so Grahame, Mike, Ash and Pippa have also confirmed that they're still interested so I guess we should make a start. As I understand it, the last Monday in the month is still without a campaign so how about starting on September 25th? That gives people six weeks to finish (or start) painting armies.

I was thinking we run it for six months. Assuming we have to skip either December or January (due to Christmas, the AGM etc) we'd finish in March and could top it off with an all-day game/big battle.

Thoughts?

I realize I'm a bit late to the party, but is it too late to throw my hat in the ring for this as well? Unfortunately, I would also need to borrow an army, or very quickly purchase one and paint them if there isn't anything available.

Rob Farley

You're more than welcome to join in, the more the merrier as far as I'm concerned. How familiar are you with Lion/Dragon Rampant? Did you have anything in mind for an army, any preference as to which House you'd represent?

I don't have a spare force available (not one that's suitable for the background anyway) but if you do get yourself a new army don't worry if it's not painted up for the start of the campaign. I'm sure you won't be the only one.

I am not very familiar with the rules beyond a glance at what was attached earlier. From what I've gathered I should be looking for 28mm figures with 12 infantry to a unit and 6 cavalry/skirmishers to a unit, correct?

I will represent House Harlaw from the Iron Islands as it appears the Islands aren't represented yet. Plus, I'll be able to use them for Vikings in other games.

Rob Farley

Sounds good to me. There's a few weeks to get some practice games in, but it's a straightforward system to wrap your head around.

OK, one more update to the rules. Hopefully this should be the last one, as I really can't think of anything else that needs addressing. The campaign rules are the same as last time, I've just fixed an issue with one of the boasts in Lion Rampant that doesn't quite work with larger forces.

I've also added two more armies to the lists, but I think everybody's decided by now so that shouldn't be an issue.

Grahame, I've been thinking about giants and changed them to Elite Foot rather than Greater Warbeasts. This helps distinguish them from mammoths, slows them down (6" movement rather than 10") but makes them more reliable with better move and defence values and no wild charge. It also adds the option for a missile attack, whether that's thrown rocks or one of those awesome giant bows that they had in the TV series is up to you. Let me know what you think, I can always change it back.

House Arryn will be getting off its backside and joining in, although it'll probably all be unpainted for the start of the campaign!  ;D
