Top o' the pile: Lion Rampant

On the Osprey blog in the past couple of years, the team have been listing each series biggest hit, surprise hit, and erm, flops. Happy reading for me this year: Lion Rampant is their top wargaming title.

I am told to take a bow, so am bent over double as I type this.

Well worth a look at what's going on in their other series, too: check it out here.

Top of the pile: Take a bow OWG 8 Lion Rampant - Medieval Wargaming Rules which led from the front in 2014. Tremendously well received across the gaming world it was the standout success for the OWG line.
The surprise package: Our first set of naval-inspired rules in the OWG series, we didn't really know what to expect from OWG 7 On the Seven Seas: Wargames Rules for the Age of Piracy and Adventure c. 1500-1730 but we didn't need to worry as the book turned out to be one of the sleeper hits for us. And looking at the early response to OWG 9 Fighting Sail it would appear that the future is bright for naval topics in the OWG series.
Not quite there yet: Perhaps it was a little too far out of our usual comfort zone, but the gloriously, crazily fun OWG 6 A Fistful of King-Fu - Hong Kong Movie Wargame Rules came up a little short in 2014.
