Dark Age lessons

Big thanks to David Knight (from the Falkirk Wargaming club) making his debut at the Battleshed this evening to provide an introduction to Dux Bellorum.



It was good to see the mechanics in play, as I haven't seen and demos of this game so was going in straight from just reading the rules.

It's plays like a hybrid historical battle/skirmish game, with each turn comprising separate shooting/movement/combat phases. The combat is very fast and straight-forward with the management of a limited (and diminishing pool) of 'Leadership Points' being allocated to provide tactical bonuses each turn. Many aspects are similar to Saga in this respect.

I look forward to our next game, but for now...thanks David!
