20-Player Dragon Rampant Holiday Bash

A bunch of us gathered at Bruce Meyer's place this evening for a large Dragon Rampant game. For the record, Bruce is the owner/proprietor of Company B Models and Miniatures. Due to the large number of players and table space, we were all limited to 12 points, so mostly 2 unit warbands, but still a lot of action.
My warband consisting of a unit of Elite Riders with Enchanted Weapons and a unit of Heavy Riders with missiles. They're actually WHFB Empire figures which have found a new lease in gaming life with Dragon Rampant.
My first few turns ended with failed die rolls to move. This actually saved my units to partake in the latter part of the game in which they destroyed two units - at the cost of losing both of my units near the end of the game. The game mechanic of having both units which take casualties after combat can and did result the destruction of the winners of the combat.
A lovely warband of Toy Soldiers run by Gary W. I wasn't near his action, but they seemed to do well as they survived until the end of the game.
The Dino-beast took a lot of hits from the Snow-ballers. I added a hit or two on it also, but it managed to survive too.
 A Mammoth-beast giving our left flank needed support.
And Rudolph laying waste to all comers.
Some gratuitous shots of Bruce's game room and some of his extensive collection of figures and models.
The models on the table are some of Company B's offerings in 1/56th scale.
A nice way to round out the work week (although I'm already off on Fridays). Best wishes and Happy Holidays to you all!

    1. Thanks a lot, Denis. Yes, I wish I could've gotten around to more of the table to see the figures and action up close. I was too occupied in my area with trying to get my units activated! :) Warmest regards, Dean

  7. Impressive looking game, Dean! Not my theme, but images are perfect.
    I would also like to express my admiration for the collection of the owner of the Company B. I have been taking a closer look at their products and plan to buy a train with wagons and a some small things.

    1. Thanks, Vasiliy. Yes, I am more of a historical fan, but couldn't pass up visiting my buddy's spectacular gaming collection - as well as hanging out with good gaming buddies. Kindest regards, Dean

      P.S. Co B vehicles are top-notch and well-researched and sculpted. And in true 1/56th scale.
