It seems it can.
My Bronze Age collection is one of my favourites visually. Its simple but very elegant, the figures by Perry's are lush and I spent a lot of time getting them just how I wanted them. I added a lot of minor conversions in as it was a small range with lots of repeated sculpts. Felt so good to get them on table I spent almost as much time taking pictures as playing.
It was a simple game, denied the use of the holy site my Warrior queen descended on the neighbouring village to wreak revenge taking her best warriors with her. The local chief has rallied his troops, they are not as good but there is a lot more of them. Six units against four, but I had the quality. Chris had made some very minor amends to the Lion Rampant rules to allow for Chariots and before we started we both made some boasts which would come back to haunt us later as they come with victory points (or not).
Here my warrior queen leads her bodyguard into battle.
By this time I had completely forgotten the boasts made at the beginning, I had not noted that to fail these removes victory points and had not properly read the first one I signed up to. I wonder if that will bite me in the bum later?
Within another 2 moves we are won to just 5 units on table, at this point we begin to roll to see if the game ends, we are finished when a roll on a D6 is higher than the remaining troops. Eventually we are left with the reluctant javelin men who are untouched but miles away, the "Helpful Villagers" or "Expert Skirmishers depending on your point of view and facing them just my archers, as the Cavalry were destroyed and the Warrior queen fled the field.
Finally we roll a 2 and its the last go. The Bidowers over the hill behind which they retreated only to be cut down to a man by short range archery.
The game ends with an almost intact unit of Archers for me and a completely intact unit of reluctant Javelin men for Chris.
That's it, everyone else is dead or run away.
Where did this leave us? You guessed it, a hard fought draw!
Read the scenario next time Roger!
The rules were simple and fun and worked really well. They need some tweaks to better reflect Bronze Age but that's hardly a surprise, taken as a whole I think they will be a really good fit and as soon as I am fit to paint again I have no doubt I will be cracking back on with more Bronze Age figures.
So I hope you enjoyed our little trip into pre-history, I certainly did, see you next time.
