Outremer from Osprey
« on: April 15, 2018, 10:51:02 AM »
Skirmish game in the Crusades era and set in the Crusader States in the Holy Land.
Released at Salute yesterday and I have had a quick read through.

Warband style with individual models that can progress so similar to games like Mordheim/Frostgrave/Legends of the High Seas etc.

Uses variety of dice from D4 through to D20 and has the normal stats list you would expect.

Interesting growth scheme where your models embark on a "career path" upgrade, which I have only skimmed so far, and need to understand how it works a bit more.

With SAGA about to release the 2nd edition version of their Crusader era rules (updating Crescent and the Cross) it is an interesting time for Holy Land conflicts.
About time I blew the dust off figures bought and not built.  :engel:

Saw this a couple weeks back, apparently already released here in the States.  It looks interesting, although I'm staying focused on Lion Rampant for the moment.  Although I'd like to get back to Day of Battle again as well.

Looks interesting to me as well. Not sure how much I like the D4-D20 range as I prefer the usual D6 style games, but the crusades have always been a fascinating period for me so it's nice to see a rule set during that period.
