I have heard a lot of people using those rules, and I have a quick question. It says units are 6 to 12 figures, but when I read reviews it sounds like they are either six or 12 figures, is it possible to have a unit in between those numbers, like an infantry unit of 10 figures?

In Lion Rampant all units are either 6 figures or 12 figures, however in Dragon Rampant which is really the same game but with fantasy elements added you are allowed to have as few or as many figures in a unit as you want but you keep track of the hits which is the same as it is in Lion Rampant six or twelve hits maximum which eliminates the unit. Most units will fail their morale and flee before that though. There is absolutely no real reason you cannot have a 10 man unit and just use it like it is a 12 man unit. Lion Rampant 2nd edition is going to be released very soon and I am willing to bet it will be points based and allow customization similar to what is in Dragon Rampant. The game is fun to play and there really is no reason you have to have units that match exactly for numbers of figures so long as you keep track of hits and treat them like 12 or 6 figure units. Do not let that keep you from playing a very fun and exciting large skirmish game. I high reccomend both Dragon and Lion Rampant, my former game group LOVED these rules.

The new Lion Rampant has flexible unit size. So a10 man unit would be fine.

Thanks

I am holding the 2nd Edition in my hand and the rule for smaller units is on page 110- Strength Points. There is also a rule on page 111 discussing Reduced Model Units.

You can also use the Dragon Rampant variant.

(I finally got the Second Edition rules and just read through them as I am excited to get them to table).

I have often used four and eight for unit sizes rolling four and eight dice instead of six and twelve because it suits my collection and table size better.

I've used fives and tens too, the game plays the same.

Good to know. I am going to give it a go with some Song of Ice and Fire figures, and the cavalry comes in boxes of 4.

One of the mods I made was to give individual figures higher value. For the 4 figure unit, the leader would be value 3 and the other 3 figures are value 1 each for a total of 6 points. The key factor is once the unit was at 1/2 strength it drops to 6 dice and not 12.

Thanks for all of the info. That was what I was hoping for!
