Hi all

I hope everyone has a good Easter! Here a few photos of a War of the Roses Lion Rampant Game we played last year.

Cheers

Good looking game thanks for posting Cyrus!

Great terrain really adds to game pictures, no exception here.

nice looking set up. are the brown areas with a bit of grass on them swampy ground? Looks like a good bit of terrain.

Thanks Dropbear, yes they're home made swamps with puddles of water between the tufts.
