Still not the final version of the cover!

FIND IT HERE IN THE UK

Of course, it's much better for our hobby if you buy from a games shop (or even a bricks and mortar book shop if you're lucky enough to still have one), but if you're keen to order early, Amazon is usually the first place people look.

Here's Osprey's marketing blurb about the game:

Whether you're a nameless Dark Lord looking to conquer the known world, a Champion of Light holding out against the forces of evil or a Northern barbarian facing claimants to a stolen throne, Dragon Rampant allows you to bring those battles to the tabletop. Developed from the popular Lion Rampant system, Dragon Rampant is a standalone wargame that recreates the great battles of fantasy fiction. Scenarios, army lists, and full rules for magic and monsters give players the opportunity to command unruly orc warbands, raise armies of the undead, campaign across an antediluvian world as the warchief of a barbarian tribe, or exploit the power of mighty creatures and extraordinary sorcery. An army usually consists of 6-8 units comprised of 6-12 individually based figures. These small units move and fight independently, assuming that they follow your orders rather than just doing their own thing. Command and control is just as important on the battlefield as the power of a troll chieftain or the magic of an archmage.

Daniel Mersey has spent three decades leading miniature armies to spectacular defeat on ancient, medieval, and colonial battlefields. He has won no medals and his armies will never salute him. His previously published games include Lion Rampant (Osprey, 2014), Dux Bellorum (Osprey, 2012), Song of Arthur and Merlin (Ganesha Games, 2008), and Glutter of Ravens (Outpost Wargame Services, 1998).
