The Dux Britanniarum Compendium

Since it will leak out on the next Meeples and Miniatures podcast (due out today-ish) I may as well let folks know now:

With Rich Clarke's blessing, and assistance from my partner in Dux Britanniarum related crime Andy Hawes, I am working on "The Dux Britanniarum Compendium" for publication by TFL hopefully not TOO much later in the year. 

Contents will include:
- at least 6 new playtested raid scenarios (which are designed like the current ones to be highly replayable)
- a more detailed approach to battles
- a bunch of new character tables to add depth to your campaign annals
In addition we'll reprint my terrain rules and possibly a couple of other things (with permission) from the TFL Specials, and there may be other stuff yet as we play-test and bounce ideas around.

At least 40 pages, possibly more, to the usual DB production standards. Will be released as a reasonably priced PDF, and we're looking at ways of getting you a print copy that don't break Rich or my bank as well.

(And yes this is Secret Project D).

  5. I'd be interested although the game died at the club. Could be the kick it needs.

    2. Thanks for that, it was just such hard work then the Raiders made it worse. But I hold out hope with Mike and Andy at the helm, so more than likely another sale here.

    3. Definitely interested as to what was 'hard work'. so we can look at ways of improving it.

    4. Your FAQ's as John said will help enourmously. We had six players in our club campaign and not two of us could agree on what a sentence, rule or paragraph actually meant.

  6. I'm absolutely thrilled to bits with this news. I've been wargaming 50 years and Dux is my favourite set of rules in all that time.

    +1 for PDF sales (which means I get to read it quicker!)
