      The Battle of Iceland: Glorantha Miniatures Combat

      Roderick Robertson has some nice rules for miniature combat in Greg Stafford's Glorantha http://www.lightofaction.com/ The Battle of Iceland is a climactic battle in the occupation of the barbarian lands of Sartar. And I have the tonnes of paper minis to play it out. It's based on the Orlanth is Dead setting pack: "The campaign section consists of two parts ? a campaign description and a fully developed scenario. The campaign description lays out what occurs in Sartar when Orlanth, the great Storm God and Father-God to the Heortlings, is defeated and chained by the Lunars. The grim picture of the frozen kingdom is filled with scenario hooks and bits of color to help narrator and players understand the horror of a people who have lost their gods. The scenario, "The Battle of Iceland," serves as the climax for this first section of Sartar Rising, allowing the player characters to participate in a major event of the campaign. The scenario is especially interesting because it is a battle, a difficult and unusual setting for an adventure. " The Battle of Iceland " pulls it off, however, partly due to the ability of Hero Wars to change between scales of action, but mostly by paying careful attention to pacing and mood ? when the player characters should be the focus of the action and when the larger scope of the battle should take precedence. It's also a great example of a grand cinematic scenario ? the biggest to hit Glorantha since "The Cradle" back in 1982." http://www.lightofaction.com/Rules/FyrdnPhalanx.pdf
