The big day is finally here. We’re now taking advanced orders for The Raiders supplement for Dux Britanniarum which will be officially released at Salute next weekend. As a bit of a celebration of its arrival we’re giving away a free PDF of the supplement with every advanced order placed. If you place an advanced order we’ll send you the PDF on Monday the 14th of April.
The Raiders supplement introduces three new factions, the Scotti, Irish and Picts, as well as amended force options for the Gwyr y Gogledd: the Britons of the North. With rules for the new factions, maps of Ireland and Scotland to campaign on and an additional 54 cards for the Dux Britanniarum Game and Fate Decks, The Raiders is a 44 page hard copy book. All overseas advanced orders will be despatched this week prior to Salute, UK and Ireland orders will be sent on Monday the 14th of April, immediately after the release at Salute.
We will be offering The Raiders as a PDF bundle with the rules in electronic format and the hard copy cards, but this will not be released until the 14th of April.
Naturally we will be stocking The Raiders and the main Dux Britanniarum rules at Salute as well as releasing the Starter Armies for the Irish, Scotti and Picts on the same day.
As part of the playtest process with any rule set we develop, one of the most interesting and enjoyable phases comes fairly late in the day, that of using history as a yardstick by which to measure what we have produced. That may sound like it should be one of the first things we do,
