Hi all

Allen Yaxley is again running the Hutt Valley Wargaming Club's Winter Cup. this is a 25mm DBMM competition. Fourteen have signed up so far. I have copied Allen's initial message below.

Vince


Day One will be on Sat July 9th. two rounds on day one , two rounds on day two ( Sat July 24th). 400/450 points as per normal.

This year we are gaming "River crossings". Each game will be as per the rules but the Defender will have to place a river. The river will be compulsory & included in the 2-4 terrain pieces. The rivers will placed as per the rules but will move to the next edge if the same sides end up being selected ie....1-1 will become 1-2.

If your list does not include a river it will still be as above. Do not expect there to be spare rivers on the day. Each person entering will be required to have one long enough to reach across the tables short sides. Check the rule book for river dimensions.

If you want to see how to make a great looking river then check out the one Drew made. Looks very nice indeed.

Any list from books 1-4.

Registration $35.00 . Comp closes on 12 entries. Nice awards including special for "Best Floater" or Boat. Be interesting to see what the Egyptian boys come up with for this.

Cheers,
Allen.

Hi all, I am forwarding the draw for the first round of the Hutt Valley Wargaming Club's Winter Cup DBMM competition. The indefatigable Allen Yaxley is running the event and emailed the draw last night. The theme is river crossings.

Vince

Fwd: This is the draw for Round One at the "Winter Cup" challenge on Sat July 9th.

Can those of you who have not registered by paying your $35.00 please do so asap. I will be at the club on April 14th. ( No, I don't have EFTPOS)

The comp is 450AP with the games going back to 400AP if an opponent only has 400AP. I am not aware of anyone not using 450AP.

If any one else wants to join in now it will require two entries & they will play each other in round one.

Armies for game two must be advised before the start of round One. Start time for round one is 8.45am until 12.30pm. Round two starts at 1.15pm - 5pm.

Round One.
a) Doug Smith ( Pre-Feudal scots-1152AD) V b) Mark Pickup ( 100yrs war English-1340AD )
c) Vince Cholewa ( Early Byzantine-530AD) V d) Gary Lewis (Norman-1066AD )
e) John Van Den Hoeven ( Aamu-2198BC) V f) Dirk Heinsius ( New Kingdom Egyptian-1190BC )
g) Graham Starkey ( E I Romans-150AD ) V h) Andrew Brazendale ( Pat Roman-493AD )
I) Paul Graham ( Parthians-90BC ) V j) Alastair Duncan ( Han Chinese-1AD )
k) Phil Gates ( French Ord-1515AD ) V l) Drew Fortune (Ottoman-1441AD )
m) Peter Noble ( Alex Imperial-328BC ) V n) Allen Yaxley ( Early Carthaginian-342BC )

The river must be chosen by thedefender and is included as acompulsory terrain option. The dicing for placement will be as normal but if the second dice has the same number then it will move forward to the nextside edge....ie 1-1 will become 1-2.
