Hi guys,

I remember reading about this game many months ago --- but I can't remember the name. I believe it is a medieval or fantasy wargame with combat system involving different sided dice. I think 6 sided, 8 sided, and 12 sided dice are used. I know this isn't much to go on, but does anyone know the name of this game? It seemed to me that this was one of the more obscure fantasy/wargame titles.

Thanks for any help.

Lee

Thanks guys for the help --- but I still can't seem to find it.

I think there was a battle board for this game much like Axis and Allies --- but the units were medieval or fantasy in nature. I remember some units using regular 6 sided dice and others using 10 or 12 sided dice. And I believe there were rules for flanking the ranged units.

If this rings a bell with anyone, I would GREATLY appreciate any input.

Thanks,
Lee

Never play block wargames with a dentist, they have those little mirrors to peek behind the block.

All I can think of is Milton Bradley's "Battle Masters", I think that is the name, it came with a big floor playing mat. I can't remember the type of dice it used. You used cards to activte the units.
