En Garde! Dark Ages conversion
« on: June 10, 2018, 07:54:55 PM »
En Garde! is small man to man skirmish, with emphasis to duelists combat set in European Renaissance. You can recreate stories of Three Musketeers, captain Bathory, or any other inspiration, like modern Asassins Creed.

Both En Garde, and his older brother Ronin are great games, with excellent combat mechanics, where you need to outsmart your oponnents in personal combats.

We love them. The Mechanics. We played Ronin as I have my collection of Kensei Zenith models and Jindra has collection of Martial Masters, but Jindra is not that much in orient gaming. We do not have models for renaissance, and we were unable to found models we like for the game, nor to choose the setting we shall both accept.

We have Dark Ages armies both of us. And as we are looking for new projects how to get our armies fully painted at least, we came to conclusion to let try the rules we both like in Dark Ages setting! We have Blood Eagle, but Jindra, is not too much fond of it. Again
Suprisingly there is not that much needed. This is first draft, I hope we will add some other recommendations or army list later. And also review of En Garde! on main page as it is missing ;-).

Last Version of the Basic Rules and lists

Thanks for that. I too like En Garde and prefer it to Ronin (which is still a great game). Seems like a cleaner system.

When I play Ronin again I'll just use the En Garde turn order system. I think that should sort the worse issues of ronin out.
