Last weekend, my buddy Nick and I wanted to try out a game of Dux Britanniarum as we're both fans of TFL rules sets. I had played DB once, a few years ago when I first bought the rules and Nick had recently acquired them.

As Nick's Dark Ages collection are still bare metal and unassembled, we agreed to use my (mostly) painted LotR models for this game, with no rules modifications to represent Middle Earth. Mordor orcs proxied for Saxons and Gondorian soldiers for Romano-Brits.

The scenario we chose was Raid on Border Watchtower in which the Mogul Orcs seek to ambush a Gondorian patrol in Ithilien with the aim of abducting Lord Faramir as a hostage. It was an opportunity to trot out my newly painted Hudson & Allen Scenics medieval tower.

Nah, just the TMP bug which had posts from someone else's thread showing up in mine. Bill cleaned it up.

Great looking tower. Looks like a fun game.

Thank you, Templar. I'm very pleased with the Hudson & Allen products and this tower in particular. Highly recommend.
