Re: Infamy, Infamy! at York - Fantastic!!

Thanks for the great write up Nick and glad you enjoyed the game. I should say the credit for all the rules go to Mr Clarke. He after all wrote them, and came up with all the clever rules which as you say help to reflect the period so well. Thank you to everyone else who came along on Sunday and eit...

Re: Lard Games at Shows

We will be at York (today!) with Infamy, Infamy! We’ll also be bringing II to Hammerhead (definitely) and probably a Partizan as well so should be 2 opportunities to play at Partizan. II is shaping up to be a great game and I’m excited about showing it off before it actually gets released. Rich has ...

Re: ANCIENT SHARP PRACTICE

I can’t speak for Rich, but I know he is interested in Romans v various hairy barbarian types. So far I’ve got list for Early Imperial Romans, Britons, Germans and Dacians which we are working on. A few small tweaks to the Roman list should bring Caesarian and Britons to Gauls so these are likely to...

Re: ANCIENT SHARP PRACTICE

SPA (like SP) is a large skirmish rather than the more traditional small skirmish games such as SPQR which tend to have a dozen or so figures a side (more a scuffle than a skirmish 😉). To give you an idea of size (but clearly how big or small is entirely down to you) these are the forces I ran for t...

Re: ANCIENT SHARP PRACTICE

We are making progress!

Caught up with Rich today and kicked some ideas around.

Romans are taking shape nicely and some interesting ideas for the barbarians which should make them fun and interesting to play!

More play testing soon.

Re: ANCIENT SHARP PRACTICE

Thanks for the kind words Snowcat. Yes Rich and I are swapping ideas! Ivan, again I can’t speak for what (or might not) come out of this project but my game is firmly a Sharp Practice size game. The game at Partizan had something like 7-9 groups on each side with half a dozen leaders. SP is a mass s...
