Results for the inaugural 25/28mm Big Battle DBA event at a Natcon, Christchurch 2017

1st Mike Thorby, II/19b Seleucid, ...................................23 points
2nd Gordon Pinchin, II/49 Marian Roman,..........................20 points
3rd Brian Sowman, II64b Eastern Middle Imperial Roman,.......19 points
4th Bryan Fowler, II/82b Eastern Patrician Romans,..............12 points
5th Josh Day, II/11 Gallic,............................................1 point

Richard Amor, II/56 Early Imperial Roman, withdrew due to illness.

A very enjoyable event with much fun and laughter through out.
Some of the fun bits, Mike having his elephant fondled by the lovely blonde President of the Hamilton Immortals. :D
Gordon (now called 15 second Gordon) needed a win with two enemy generals in the bag to beat me into second place,
was staring a draw against Bryan Fowler in the face. Thanks to Bryan getting through his move in good time Gordon managed to roll his pip dice within 15 seconds before I called "Time". :)
Gordon then went on to remove the last element required to break Bryan's Roman army claiming a well deserved win with two enemy generals in the bag giving him 2nd place. :D
There were many calls of "hey Brian these dice are crap" through out the two days of the event until Mike's last game against Bryan Fowler when his dice drove his scythed chariots through Bryan's CnC and several other Roman knights breaking the CnC's command and giving Mike an unassailable lead of three wins. :D :D :D
I thought my game against Gordon would give me an easy win and take me into the lead with three wins as I had Gordon's left wing command out numbered, out manoeuvred, out flanked, out of reserves and gaps available for nasty outflanking manoeuvres, so charged in gung-ho. Three turns later my command was smashed and my army was 5 bases away from breaking....... :oops:
Josh was making hard work of being the event football until the last game where he managed what no other player had done, break Mike's Pike Phalanx frontally. The Gallic Warriors drew on the inspiration of their Gods and my bribes of a ride home if they beat Mike, for this mighty feat.
Bryan Fowler for refusing my offer to play in the AdlG event, his preferred rule set, and holding our Big Battle event together.
Bryan had only played one BBDBA game before this event so did well all things considered. Thanks for making the trip from Wellington.

Note, Brand new, never before used, Dice were supplied for this event by the Organiser.

The Big Battle Scoring I used was

6 points for a Win + 1 point for each enemy General destroyed + 1 point for sacking the enemy Camp, Maximum 10 pts

2 points for a Draw + 1 point for each enemy General destroyed + 1 point for sacking the enemy Camp + 1 point for Demoralising an enemy Command + 1 point for Breaking an enemy Command, maximum 8 points

0 points for a Loss+ 1 point for each enemy General destroyed + 1 point for sacking the enemy Camp + 1 point for Demoralising an enemy Command + 1 point for Breaking an enemy Command, maximum 6 points

Games were 2 hours 15 minutes + the time to finish the move in progress when time was called.

Each player played each other once and the scores were then totalled for the final result.

Organiser, Brian Sowman
Time Keeper & Scorer Andy Brown
