I've just bought a set of Medieval wargames rules called "Revenge" by "Emperor's Press". It does not, however, have any army lists. Does anyone know of any for this or have any thoughts on the rules at all?

Use some other game's army lists. They are all basically the same, just with jargon and stats which fit their own game. They are usually very fungible.

Have you been reading Lindsey Davis's new novel, John?

They only released one supplement for Revenge, the Normans I believe -- so its up to you to make up the army lists.

I have only played the siege rules once. Perhaps the reason for this is that I found the rules to be rather incomplete. Its one of those sets which appeared on the shelves, but there seemed to be little interest in or support for the rules.

The Normans supplement does not really have army lists, but is a collection of different scenarios for the game. It is well done, IMHO, however it requires a lot of figures (a prohibitive amount if done in 25mm).

"Its one of those sets which appeared on the shelves, but there seemed to be little interest in or support for the rules."-

That pretty much sums up Emperor's Press games to a tea.

It was the first set of miniature rules I bought when I decided to get into the hobby.

They play more like a simulation than a wargame.

After ordering them I went to Little Wars in Chicago with and played with the author Todd Fischer.

He really did not take time to explain to anyone at the table how to play and seemed to be very upset when the players questioned him during the game. Came across as being very smug.

Without question it was THE longest most boring convention event I have played in to date.

After playing with Mr. Fisher I quickly decided not to play them ever again.

Later that same day I ended up playing Tactica Medieval and got to play three games in 4 hours that it took to play Revenge.

I sold my copy in an auction at another con a few years later.

Tons of combat charts and the like really bog the game down to a crawl.

For a new player to the hobby I would not recommend this rule set at all.
