Glutter of Ravens

These rules utilize small armies, with the emphasis being on a leader's household troops and bodyguard. Warbands are rated on Aggression, Formation, and Strength - all of which are important for different aspects of combat. The rules can be used to fight the civil wars which split the Britons in this period, or to fight the incoming hordes of Picts, Irish, and Saxons.

Product includes a guide to British armies in this period – around 30 pages of historical and army guides, and several color plates.
