A Small Teaser – Table for Tonight's game


I couldn't resist sharing these pictures with you, showing the setup for tonight's game of Dux Britanniarum. The terrain was set up by my good mate Dalauppror, who has a real talent for making beautiful tables, and this time he really outdid himself.


Buildings, markers, minis and trees by yours truly. The rest of the terrain is from the club.


The game? Well, the Saxons were out to plunder the church but had a really rough nigh. But with two newcomers commanding them and the terrain placement perhaps being a bit too tough on them, this was only to be expected. Still, I think everyone had a good time – I certainly enjoyed visiting this old favourite of mine!


A full report with pictures of the action will be posted in due time.

    1. Cheers Mattias! Well, I've been busy lately and built me some more trees. The latest batch was a little more involved as I sculpted roots on them, but it was well worth it as they look much better than the first ones.

  13. I had a great time revisiting Dux and playing at the fantastic table.
    The Good side won, as it should be. It was obviously our superior tactics that won the day (I won't hear any talk of jinxed dice)

    1. Hey Joakim, thanks for playing and I'm glad to hear you had a good time! I think at least some of the Saxons' dice were pretty jinxed. :)
