    Persönlich finde ich ist Dragon Rampant eines der besten Tabletop Skirmish Regelwerke der letzten Zeit. Sehr eingängige Regeln ohne dabei zu simpel zu sein und eine durchschnittliche Spielzeit von 1-2 Stunden pro Spiel, sind für mich perfekt..

    With the demise of Warhammer there are a lot of people wondering what they are going to do with their armies now that their game is dead. If this describes you then you should seriously consider picking this game up.Like many smaller wargames coming out these days (and all of the games from Osprey) this is a game with no defined minis. The idea is to use what you have on hand to build an army and play with your friends. Armies can be much smaller than a standard Warhammer army which also makes it nice for new players who don't need to invest a ton of money in new minis.Rules are provided for you to define how your army works along with some examples that you can use straight from the book.

    With its core being the "Lion Rampant" game engine from the same author, Daniel Mersey has created a masterpiece. No miniature is left out! Angry at spending your hard-earned money on GW figs you can't use because of silly rules changes? Got those classic D&D minis from decades past? Addicted to the beautifully affordable Reaper Bones line as I am? FIELD THEM ALL! This is by far the best Fantasy Skirmish rules set on the market today. Between the "rock-paper-scissors" basis of the game design and Unit Activation mechanic, there are no "broken" lists. One offs, Tournaments, Campaigns, and Army Lores are all welcome with 'Dragon Rampant', and it's friendly for all ages to play as well. Osprey Wargames' tradition of creating quality, affordable rules sets that allow whole ranges of different manufacturers' miniatures to be used is dutifully carried on with 'Dragon Rampant'.

    Fun, medium-sized, army-level miniatures wargame built using the same game-design engine as Lion Rampant. The rules are easily grasped, play smoothly, and you can finish a battle in 2 hours or less. The ability to use virtually any fantasy models that you own, and the reasonable figure-count (50-60 models to make an average army) is a huge plus in this game's favor. The only thing keeping me from giving it 5-stars is it's light on "fantasy chrome", the stuff which makes a fantasy game really feel fantastic. The spells and special abilities, while solid, don't go far enough to give this game that extra star. I understand it's a trade-off to make the game play faster and simplify rules complexity, so I'm not knocking the designer, who did a great job with this game. Recommended.

    This is a war gaming book that uses 28mm figures (like the D&D or Pathfinder figures) and not a fiction book in the normal sense. It is a very simple game set that allows you to use the figures you already have. It breaks down the mechanics as a number of groups of figures that act as a unit. The system uses the standard 6 sided die for all actions, so you'll need a couple handfuls. If you have 12 per person you'll have enough.

    This book is a set of rules for miniatures war gaming.I like the rules concepts. I like the ease of fitting one's own ideas into the core rules.Material is given generically enough so that it can be easily tailored to an individuals styles and tastes.I liked the full color pictures. I did find a few spelling errors. But they are easily overlooked.I purchased as an Ebook. I am finding that while Ebooks are cheaper, when it comes to rule books for war gaming, one is better off paying the extra money for a printed book. It is a big hassle to attempt to print materials in these books that are meant as player aides.
