Battle of Pinhoe, Dux Bellorum - Devon Wargames Group
« on: April 10, 2022, 12:30:18 PM »
This weekend at the DWG I was able to give my Dark Age collection a run out with another refight of our local Battle of Pinhoe, fought in 1001AD, just outside of Exeter.



Our preferred rules for this kind of game is Dan Mersey's Dux Bellorum which are always great fun to play and have produced some great games in the past, with this one to living up to previous plays.



If you would like to see how the game played together with other information about our local battle, then just follow the link to the club blog.

Often it is better to remain silent and let people think you are stupid than to open your mouth and remove all possible doubt.

Great to see Dan's Dux Bellorum rules still very much in effect :)

Hi,
Thank you and yes it was really fun to get Dux Bel back out on the table and seeing the players crunching through the decision points of how to use the Leadership Points during various stages of the game reminded me why I like them so much.

Not only that but it got us back up to speed playing them in time for our bigger gamer next month.

Cheers
JJ
