Hi all

A big thank you to Allen Yaxley for organising the DBMM competition Saturday and Sunday, and a bunch of horse and musket and ancient demo games on Friday and Saturday. Allen will post full results soon. Highlights for me included:

- In my first game, summoning the devil and his brother! In one bound my PIP dice were 666 and my flank marching command rolled a fourth 6. I have never done that before :-)

- I won the medal for best army with my Early Byzantines. Many thanks to Brent Senior-Partridge for giving me my box of 25mm Hinchcliffe Byzantines. By spending about $200 to buy some additional figures I have got Early and Maurikian Byzantines from the box. Choice! as we might say in some parts of New Zealand LOL

- Lots of good conversation and ideas about my army. I had only used it once before and tweaks will be made to one or two commands and to how I use the infantry command. I finished with 52 points from four games.

- Graham Starkey, a great bloke returning to wargaming after the slings and arrows of breeding and raising children, has my Early Imperial Romans on long-term loan while he decides which army he will get for his very own.

- Last, and definitely not least, catching up with old friends who I had not seen for years. Great to see you guys. We need to do this more often :-)

The Award for Best terrain went to Drew's river which he made himself & was the best I have ever seen. The Judge agreed.

The Award for General Slayer went to Grant with 3 Generals slain.

The Award for Baggage Looter was awarded to Tilman with 6 elements burgled.

The best army was close with Grant , Drew , Dirk & Vince all mentioned but the judge chose Vince as his presented will with the terrain in his first game. I could have given out 6 best army awards , the standard was so high. Alastair's Africans, Andrew's Carthaginians, & Phil's Venetians all mentioned.

Will done Andrew & Nick for 10 out of 10 in the Military History Quiz.

John Mclennan , I hope you are better by the time you get this. Hope to see you all in June at NICON.
