Playing Outremer Faith and Blood III: Movement

Finally I am pleased to say that my family issues seem to be moving towards some form of resolution and thus I can put some more time back into supporting the ever growing number of Outremer players.

Absence - My Apologies

Hi all. Just a quick one to apologise for my absence; initially I was away with my day job, but have since returned to find that my mother is seriously unwell.

Needless to say this has taken priority and I have been arranging her care needs. I have been reading everyone’s comments questions and posts and rest assured I will get around to answering them as soon as I can.

Again please accept my apologies for the break in communications. 

As an aside I hope you’re all having some really great games of Outremer!!

Cheers

JR

So last time we took a quick look at how players could assemble their Warbands for games of Outremer: Faith and Blood; now we get to the real meat of the matter... actually playing the game.

Playing Outremer: Faith and Blood - Warrior profiles and Warband Selection





So.... Outremer: Faith and Blood is finally out at the end of this week... Hooray!! In fact some of you may have been lucky enough to pick up one of the early copies that Osprey made available at Salute 2018 in London last weekend.

It’s been a long (and sometimes emotional) journey but at long last the game is soon going to be available for people to play! With this in mind I thought I’d spend the next few posts taking a little look at the game and how it works.

First up we’ll take a brief look at Warband selection, followed by a slightly more in depth overview of fighter’s profile sheets and what they represent.

Well as a famous person once said all publicity is good publicity... and so with this in mind I am pleased to say Outremer: Faith and Blood is in the Press once again this month.

Outremer in the Press!

Hi all; apologies for the delay between posts. Unfortunately I have been away with my full-time, real-world job for a while so it has impacted on hobby time! Don’t you just hate it when real life persistently gets in the way of toy soldiers!!

Well for those of you who are avid gamers you may have noticed that this month Outremer: Faith and Blood is featured heavily in the latest issue of Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy Magazine (Issue 95 in case you were wondering).

Military Order Warbands in Outremer: Faith and Blood

The final warband faction that is featured in the rulebook for Outremer: Faith and Blood are the Knight-Brothers and Sergeant-Brothers of the Military Orders. These holy warriors were formidable fighters and formed an iconic faction during the Crusader period; and still for many the bright red cross on a white mantle of the Knights Templar is the lasting image of the Crusades.
