Robin Hood!

Our friends at Northstar have just released an expansion pack for their Frostgrave Soldiers set that allows you to create Robin Hood and his Merry Men. He already had individual metal figures for Robin, Marian and the Sheriff based on the recent BBC TV series.

So, in honour of this excellent idea we at The Ministry have written complete Blood Eagle lists for Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Nottingham for Northstar’s website.

You can find the here:

Opening shots

In April 2016, the Ministry of Gentlemanly Warfare will launch their second game, Blood Eagle.
This is based on the same core rules as both Daisho and In Her Majesty’s Name and will cover warfare in the 9th and 10th centuries across Scandinavia, the British Isles, Northern Europe and Russia.
As with the Ministry’s other game, Daisho, players will be able to choose between playing a straight historical game, a heroic one in keeping with the sagas, or including all the legendary aspects of the period.
The game is easy to learn, quick to play and involve no more than fifteen figures a side.
This blog will be used to make announcements about the game during its development and launch, and then to support it with free material, battle reports, reviews of related products such as figures and terrain, and new rules.
There is already a very active FaceBook page with almost three hundred members and the game has not even been launched yet:
Talking of launches, we shall be taking the game for its first public outing to Salute 2016 in the UK. Come along and see us there.
