I visited a Jousting Tournament at Couronne the other day. Thought I would share.

Very nice…

Excellent! But pray sir, speak more of the manner of these jousts! How came you to devise the laws which govern such affairs martial?

Beautiful set-up! thumbs up

WarWizard08 Oct 2014 6:05 a.m. PST

Excellent. What commercial enterprise makes those tents?

Wonderful looking game.

Interesting, we had virtual jousting tourneys on site, site members came up with the rules, and Tourney Master was rolling and publishing the results coloured with artistic description of the fights.
I was thinking of making something similar to your set-up, have lots of polystyrene left after balconies refurbishment, so I'll study the pics for future references… ;)

Hello I just used some very simple house rules that I made up on the spot. I just rolled dice against each knight and who ever had the most points won the joust after 3 passes. If a rider rolled a 6 then his opponent was unhorsed an instant loss obviously. If the knight happened to be a duke he was allowed one re roll during the match. I was the field marshal and rolled the dice. It was a solo game while I was taking care of my daughter who was sick at home from school. So it was a hasty game on the dining room table. I can obviously make it more complicated. I joust so it would be easy to develop for myself more complex rules

What I mean is I can always add to my house rules to make it more interesting. Head shots,shield hits,misses etc.
I just used some old fences and a lot of my MBA terrain. I would like to get some of Steve Barbers joust in stuff in 28mm. The tilt field was just a simple set up.

Thank you all. It was fun and took up a few hours of my day and made it go faster. I plan on having tournaments all over Bretonnia. As well as war.

Well, I think that was splendid. Your scenery was great, too. I thought it was a demonstration / participation game for a convention!

darclegion09 Oct 2014 6:54 a.m. PST

Wow! Thanks! that makes me feel good! Motivation to game on!! I plan on having joustin tournaments more often. I will keep track of who is winning the most tournaments. I think next time I will add a few different rules to the game to keep it interesting.

Your rules don't sound half-bad as a starting point. Many times, simpler is better with rules, especially if the miniatures and scenery are top notch.

Awesome looking game.

tkdguy13 Oct 2014 11:58 p.m. PST

Looks great! Does Warhammer have rules for jousting, or did you use a different ruleset?

Lions Den15 Oct 2014 7:00 p.m. PST

Great stuff. Where did you get all the names? Are the knight's heraldry real of "correct"?

darclegion16 Oct 2014 10:56 a.m. PST

I think there are some jousting rules in the Warhammer Siege rule book. I made house rules for my game.

I pulled some of the names out of the Bretonnia houses, and And a few of them were borrowed from my friends.

We do quite a bit of 28mm Jousting.
Here's a photo of my model tilt yard.

Awesome…I've pondered this kind of thing many times. Might have to give in some time.

darclegion30 Oct 2014 7:59 p.m. PST

That is assume stuff. I booked marked your page, I will definitely have to get some of that terrain soon. Thanks for sharing!!
