The rules being used at Salute are an in-development version of Dux Britanniarum from TooFatLardies.  

Dux Britanniarum, written by Richard Clarke, is a campaign-driven game where the British defend their land and their Roman heritage against Pagan Saxon raiders determined to carve out their own kingdom. Although set in the early Dark Ages, we found that the rules work just as well for the earlier conflict between Romans and Celtic warriors.

Dux Britanniarum, due out this summer, builds on the game mechanics introduced in Sharpe Practice and developed in the Lardies other excellent large-scale skirmish rules Terrible Sharp Sword and Through the Mud & Blood.  Players of Sharpe Practice will find a lot that is familiar, but Dux Britanniarum takes the card-driven mechanics of the earlier games to a whole new level.

You can find out more about Dux Britanniarum on Lard Island News at Sharpe Practice and the other TooFatLardies rules are available from their web site at
Here is an image of the graphic work that Pat Connor has done for us on the fate and turn cards.

Have we heard from the patrol?

The patrol runs into a little bit of trouble just outside their fort!

Things are taking shape for the Salute 2012 demo game. Andrew is now working on the Caledonian cavalry and I'm working on the Roman auxiliaries and cavalry.

The fort was made for my collection by Paul Darnell.

Andrew and I got together for a photo shoot of the collection so far.
