Suits me (I fly back in from Europe the weekend before).

Is it definite yet or still provisional?

I'll try and get some additional interest from Wellington guys.

Regretfully I won 't be able to attend. I'm house and daughter sitting for seven weeks ending that weekend.

regards
Brent

Hi Aaron,

This months one is due out this Friday, if you can flick me some details and an email I'll get it out there.

I felt I did ok with the cav army; won 2, lost 2, drew 2.

The good US guys were adamant that I needed some shock units. They were not convinced that pure cav can consistently break an opponent. Yes, you can bamboozle newbies with all the shooty cav. But experienced players with knights will always clean you up (as I learned!).

Another great weekend, marred only slightly by being held up by a truckload of potatoes that crashed and blocked the only road between the Christchurch and the top of the south. We were stopped at the end of a 25km line of cars and trucks and there was probably another 2km behind us by the time it was cleared.

Great venue at Josh's work, was just a little disappointing that Jacinda Adern didn't call in for a chat.

2 Ptolemaics, 2 Seleucids, 2 Chinese, 1 Roman, 1 Carthaginian and a very huge Sumerian army fielded by Richard whose main tactic was wearing out the enemies right arms slaughtering the masses of crud.

Pikes ruled the day with Shaun first, Aaron second and Tim third all using Successor armies.

Once again thanks to the Nelson guys for a fun relaxed weekend, see you all at Conquest

And tired they did become, as wave upon wave of Sumerian's crashed upon them. Until finally they gave up, call it a draw, and went home and had a nice cup of tea and put their feet up.

I see that you have stayed at the top Richard. The cunning plan of letting masses of peasants die so you can earn eternal fame was a great success.

That's it Andre, but I think I'll try a different tactic at Conquest, maybe not dying in droves.
