I have the pdf file of Days of Knights and like the rules. I am going to collect some 6mm Baccus WotR armies and base them for Days of Knights. Is it worth it to get the 2nd Edition? Have nay played both versions? If so, is the game different and is DoK2 better? Thanks!

I don't have DoK2 (wait, I do have something useful to say) but if you check the ChipCo Yahoo group you'll find many of the most vocal proponents of DoK prefer the first to the second edition, and eventually pushed through the "republication" of DoK1. I really liked DoK1 but haven't played the period in years, and as a result of the feedback on the forum never invested in v2. I think it would be worth checking out the forum.

I agree about hearing the less than steller feedback about V2. I was also planning on picking it up. But decided to stick with 1st edition based on the comments I read at the group.

Thanks,

John

If Curtis and I err it is usually on the side of adding period flavor to the rules. DOK2 wasn't an error from our standpoint, but does reflect this penchant on our part. I think the reappearance of DOK1 points up the power of the pdf format for rules. If we had to actually print the thing, no way. But with a pdf it is really no challenge to give our customers what they want.
