The Dragon Has Landed!

A late xmas present arrived in the post today - my copy of Dragon Rampant. I picked mine up for an absolute bargain on Books Etc, less than £7 including postage. Other sellers are available, such as the publisher website Osprey, and quite a few indie web sites sell it too. As with all new books, I flipped it open and flicked through the pages. It's similar in style and layout to Lion Rampant, the usual Osprey fare which is solid and serviceable, if a little old fashioned. One big surprise, and a very pleasant surprise at that, was the inclusion of some full page art spreads. These are very nice indeed, I include my three favourites below to give a taster. Best fantasy art I have seen in a good while.

I look forward to delving deeper later in the week and will give a better, more detailed review at some point in the new year. In the meantime, just enjoy the lovely art. The pictures are posted without permission, in the unlikely event that this causes a problem with the author/publisher I will of course remove this post.

Got my Kindle version last week. I like very much how Dan Mersey's set this up to be very workable with any person's miniatures collection. So unlike Lion Rampant, where it's definite units of 6 or 12, my collection of 8 skeletons don't necessarily need 4 more members to make a legit unit. I can just add some sort of ability/ies to make up for the lack of models in points instead. Very cool. Also gives me an opportunity to finally use my dragons! (got them for roleplay sessions, but my group never seems to level up high enough to warrant sticking on in an adventure!)

Happy New Year!
