Hello all

January 27-28, mark the dates in your diary, and get your 25mm DBMM armies ready.

The Hutt Valley Wargaming Club is once again hosting its annual, world famous in New Zealand, ValleyCon.

Please register now at [url]https://huttclub.wordpress.com/events/valleycon-2018/

As always ValleyCon is cunningly timed to coincide with the three-day Auckland Anniversary Weekend. This means our northern brethren can travel and still return home with time for their weekend chores (they will have clean socks and undies for the following week at work!).

I shall post the DBMM player pack shortly. Something to watch for is we are hoping to have at least some 8' x 5' tables. The narrower depth, no longer 6', should make little difference to game play but will make considerable difference to middle-aged backs!

Best regards
Vince

Hello all

The player information for the DBMM competition at ValleyCon is now on the Hutt Miniature Wargames Club website at:

https://huttclub.wordpress.com/events/valleycon-2018/

You must register via the website.

After you have registered please email your 400AP list to me. I will be using Early Imperial Romans, with the list options for an army from the 2nd Century AD based in Syria. Ave Caesar!

Best regards
Vince

Hi all

Good on you to the lucky 13 who have already registered for 25mm DBMM at ValleyCon, 27-28 January 2018. Some have even paid! Those who have not, please do.

One of ValleyCon’s stalwarts, Andrew Bennetts, won’t be able to make it next year but Benny has very kindly offered to vet the army lists. So far we have four lists from 13 players. Please send your 400AP lists to me and I will forward them to Benny.

A reminder, we must register through the club website https://huttclub.wordpress.com/events/valleycon-2018/ by January 10. The player information is there too.

Eight is the minimum for a competition – we have clearly achieved that, including three new players getting their armies finished. Yes!

The next step is 16 players, at which point there is step up in the value of prize vouchers and number of medals. After that 24+ players gives the biggest prize pool.

Best regards
Vince

Here's a reason to come to ValleyCon, 27-28 January 2018. Because you will see armies like this that are just, Wow! These are some pics of Robert Curry's brand new, almost finished, Macedonians. You will see Philip II of Macedon is still "dad" and is in purple with the hypaspists. Alexander is "the boy" not yet "the great" and is leading the companions. Enjoy Robert's superb work, and register for ValleyCon at

Yet more "wow!" reasons to come to ValleyCon 27-28 January 2018: Doug Smith's brand new Later Carthaginians will be there. Here are some pics of the Libyan spearmen, elephants and Gauls. There will, of course, be much more. Hasn't Doug done a fab job?

So far we have 21 registered for the DBMM competition (good effort guys). If you have not yet registered, then click on this link and do; player information is there too. Registrations must be in by January 10. https://huttclub.wordpress.com/events/valleycon-2018/

Link to some pics of Doug's new army on the DBMM New Zealand Facebook:

I would like to upload pics to an album on the Yahoo DBMM list, except the list keeps telling me an error has occurred and it can't upload the pictures. What's the error? It won't say. It's the Yahoo way! I will try again later.

Vince
