This will again be a singles tournament with the best three scores from a wargame club counting for the club trophy, which is normally impressive.

There will be the offer again of a dinner together in winchester on the Saturday night. There is also a travel lodge by the cathedral now open.

An idea for next year Lynda and I thought up on the way back from Britcon
Fixed terrain.Variable amounts on the tables ,roughly equal amounts of open ,medium,closed tables
Player with initiative can move or add up to 2 pieces using the normal dice methods or remove 1
Player without initiative can move 1 piece .
When moving use 2 d6 for distance,must move the full distance if possible
Player with initiative picks side.
Allocate tables randomly after draw has been made

Hi David - a quick question.

The LRR & Principate are limited to a max of 20 Legionaries. Any reason why that restriction has not been extended to the Dom Roms and Palmyrans?

Thanks
Pete

Good point, the Palmyran are now in line as twenty bases.

Because the dominate are not skilled sword, i didn't put them under the same restriction, but happy to discuss.

Also, any armies that faced the desert in that period which i have missed off let me know.

Is it 20 bases of skilled sword legionaries, or 20 bases of legionaries?
These armies have crap legionaries, legionaries converted from marines, raw recruits, etc
Shouldn't they also be specified as Eastern

I think Phil makes a good point. Just restrict it to a max of 20 Skilled Swordsmen and then you sort out the MF Lanceraii as well.

Eastern options only makes sense for the Romans if you are focussing on that desert theatre.
