Good to see somebody else trying Dux B we have had some great battles but setting Vikings vs saxons. Interested to see how you run and how long the campaign takes ours has kind of slowed down despite quite a few battles some quite dramatic we haven't progressed all that far? Thanks Matt for the link, now following you. Campaigns are always a challange keeping enough people interested, hoping perhaps a couple of all dayers might be the key to success. Cheers Stu. Great stuff!

The rules are designed to be played with relatively small forces.

Forces are grouped into six figures for most warriors and four figures for skirmish and missile troops or cavalry.
Activation is determined by a speedy card driven system where all units get to act in any single turn. The rules are 92 full colour pages, perfect bound. Included with the rules is an A3 pull out map of Britian in around AD which provides the background setting to the Dux Britanniarum campaign.
Your characters start their campaign as a Saxon Lord or a Romano-British Tribune and will attempt to gain fortune and reputation on the battlefield as you fight to defend or conquer a Romano-British kingdom. Included with the rules are four detailed maps which together cover moderd Britain, Wales and lowland Scotland along with an historical background to each kingdom.
A character generation system will add colour to your campaign as your Nobles assume their own personalities. The terrain and scenario generator allows games to be set up quickly and to result in an almost infinite variety of games to keep you challenged and enjoying the action.

Tales of @TheBrummieDwarf
Dux Britanniarum was a military post in Roman Britain , probably created by Diocletian or Constantine I during the late third or early fourth century. The Dux literally, " military leader" was a senior officer in the late Roman army of the West in Britain. His responsibilities covered the area along Hadrian's Wall , including the surrounding areas to the river Humber in the southeast of today's Yorkshire, Cumbria and Northumberland to the mountains of the Southern Pennines. The headquarters were in the city of Eboracum York. The purpose of this buffer zone was to preserve the economically important and prosperous southeast of the island from attacks by the Picts tribes of what are now the Scottish lowlands and against Scots Irish raiders. The position carried the rank of viri spectabiles , but was below that of the Comes Britanniarum. His responsibilities would have included protection of the frontier, maintenance of fortifications, and recruitment.
