Its been a while since our last post but the time has not been wasted. The ‘first draft’ of the dark age skirmish rules are now in a playable state and hopefully readers will be able to down load from this blog.
For years (many, many years!) our Dark Age skirmishing has been done using an old 1980’s set from our Scimitar Wargames Group days ‘Oshere’s Helm’ and completely adequate they have been given that we would only skirmish every now and then. These days we skirmish more and more (probably reflecting our advancing years!) and as we’ve collected not only more figures but also more ‘stuff’ the thought of writing a new set has become a reality and so I thought it might be nice to share the initial process. Why? Well, probably the delusion that someone thinking about giving rule writing a go might get a bit of inspiration and also anyone reading might think about chipping in an idea or two. Who knows!
