I've posted a battle report from another of my club's Dark Age games on my blog here:


The rules we were play-testing are TooFatLardies' forthcoming Dark Age rules, entitled Dux Britanniarum. The game features a desperate fight for a river ford, as told by the life-ward, Cynewulf of the Grey Shore …

"By the light of the guttering fire I can still see his face, flecked with blood and the exhaustion of the battle. I was silent while he spoke to me throughout much of the night. I shall remember his story to tell to my son, as my Father, Cynewulf of the Grey Shore, has told it to me."




I hope you enjoy it!

Sounds like it was a fun and interesting game. I'll be watching for more information on these rules.

Nice report and pics, Sir Sid.

I gotta say I really like your terrain. The amount which good looking terrain can enhance a game is underestimated.

Excellent AAR! Hope the TFL releases these rules shortly.

Looks like end of July for general release of the rules. Be one of the first 1,000 purchasers and get a King Arthur figure, too.

Please keep us informed on the rules. Everything looks great and this is a period I do not get to see much of.
Great work.
