Lion Rampant on Show

Posted by Ochoin on 25 Nov 2023, 11:14

Our annual Train Show is this weekend, where we put on a wargame for two days - this year, Lion Rampant.

This was set during The 100 Years War - somewhere in southern France. Four, competing warbands descended on the County of Toulouse to create mayhem.

But first we had to set-up:



Each of the 32 point warbands had a camp, located in the corner of the table.



Some were mainly foot soldiers but one was exclusively mounted:


The defenders were centred around the Count's castle:

You can see, left, the coveted "Holy Grail' trophy we were competing for.




Victory points were gained by destroying defender units & the units of rivals. Bonus points were gained by burning villages, capturing fleeing peasants & livestock but the biggest bonus was gained for capturing the good Count & his lady after slaying their paladin in single combat.

Suffice it to say, a great day of gaming was had, with lots of interest from passing spectators.

The game will be repeated tomorrow.


Figures mostly Tumbling Dice 20mm & Strelets' 1/72. Castle by Zvesda.

Great-looking game and an interesting scenario with four competing warbands on the rampage in southern France. Good to hear that it created a fair degree of interest from punters at the show. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Donald,
nice eclectic mix of figures and epochs. Particularly interesting : the bronze statue of Napoleon on his horse :-D
Sure this kind of game is an attraction in such type of shows.
