Hi all

Three DBMM competitions are about to get underway in New Zealand: the Winter Cup, Call to Arms and Recoil!

Winter (Cup) is coming! Peter Nobel is running the Winter Cup at the Hutt Valley Wargaming Club this year, Saturday's July 25 and August 22. So far 12 players are confirmed and there is definitely room for more. Peter has added a twist of fate. For this competition ally-generals are reliable if their first die roll is 6! If an army has no allies it nominates a sub-general for the same treatment. There are, of course, terms and conditions. Check out the competition details at

You can also email Peter on

I will be using "Brent's Byzantines", in memory of Brent Senior-Partridge. They are the Maurikian Byzantines - all Hinchliffe figures - that Brent gave me.

Paul Graham's update about the Wellington Warlords' Call to Arms, August 8-9: "We are 4 weeks away from this year's event, so it's time for a few reminders and promises. We have our full complement of 18 players, which is a fantastic effort when 2 months ago we wondered if Level One would ever come. I'll be sending out soon some sketches of the terrain on the 9 tables, which stays fixed for the whole competition - some you will recognise from previous years, and one or two will present new perspectives on old battlefields. Please in return, send in your army lists now (400 pts, 2 alternate lists).

"I wanted to add that the competition will be named in honour of the Immortal Warlord Brent Senior-Partridge, sadly missed, and we'll have a suitable trophy for the winner to enjoy until the next Call to Arms."

Neil Williamson is running Recoil! as a DBMM 200 competition, September 12 and 26. He has emailed:
"You are all invited to attend the second Recoil! tournament
"This is a 240ap tournament to be held on the normal club days in September at the Hutt Club.
"Follow the link to the Hutt Club website for details and registration form
"If you know of anyone who might be interested please forward this email.
"In addition to the player pack information I will also be reducing the cost and amending the stratagems for this tournament, when I get a round tuit."
