Lion Rampant 2nd Ed Soon - Any Previews?
« on: July 13, 2022, 06:36:59 PM »
I've come to love the *Rampant system and am eagerly awaiting the upcoming 2nd Edition. Anyone have their hands on it early or are aware of the additions/updates/changes that'll be within?

The latest WSS podcast mention this and some of the contents of this - you might want to listen to that.

I was told yesterday that the release has been put back to 18th August - Osprey have had shipping problems (not unusual at the present time). Annoying, I know, but the books will be released soon. I've not seen a printed copy yet so can't wait.

The latest Wargames Illustrated has an article explaining more about the new edition, and Osprey will be posting stuff on their blog, too. Here's the first one: https://ospreypublishing.com/blog/Lion_Rampant_2nd_ed_Design_Diary_1/

The next one looks in more detail at what's different (or the same).

eh, I'm not annoyed. First edition is great as is, so second edition is icing. Cheers!

Found an online flip-through of the new book. https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=ppQjjmZDbRI

It looks like the units may be a bit more robust with options? Can't wait to get this one in my hands.

Is it just me who looked at that video and thought that up to 50% of the content was glossy pictures of wargames figures?

It feels like padding an 2 x A4 set of rules.

It is indeed Mick. The WI vids are usually good quality and dig a little deeper than most with their previews

Based on the video this looks brilliant.

My copy is already on order.

Mine's here but I haven't had the chance to dig in yet. Can't wait :)

Looks very promising. The family has been my favourite engine in the last years.
Thanks for sharing!
