Dux Bellorum in Battlegames 32

Mike Siggins looks at Dux Bellorum - Mersey Dux as he calls it to avoid confusion with Too Fat Lardies' Dux Britanniarum or Lardy Dux - in his 'Thoughts from the armchair' in the latest issue of Battlegames. The review is pretty positive, although Mike's ultimate conclusion is that the Arthurian period doesn't offer enough options for an interesting game regardless of the rules used.

That's a shame, as I'd hoped I'd managed to overcome the 'boring' aspect of Dark Ages gaming with these rules, but unfortunately they didn't do that for Mike. More happily, he mentions that Song of Arthur & Merlin still does the job for his small scale Arthurian skirmishing. Hurrah!
