Wargaming The Water Margin using Dragon Rampant.

Not perhaps the most exciting title for a blog post but it does what it says on the tin.
With the expansion of the Water Margin forces over the past 12 months the games have probably increased beyond your average game size for Songs of Blades and Heroes. I have always wanted to put on a larger game using the whole collection and Dragon Rampant should fit the bill allowing me to combine individual heroes and larger units on the same battlefield.

Set out below are the stats for each unit in the collection, broken down into the Heroes of Llang Shan Po, the Evil Kao Chau and several more generic pieces including the latest couple of recruits.


Foo Dogs.
I picked these up from Watchful I Studio last year when they launched their Warring States Range on Kickstarter, a simple golden paint job and they are table ready.

Sunday is the first outing for Dragon Rampant Oriental so lets see if all the paper planning has paid off.
