COMPANIONS CUP VI – THE GLISTENING OF SPEARS

Trundle, trundle, trundle.

The long awaited sixth Companions Cup is about to start.

The teams:

Rest of the World - claymore (capt), rexhurley, pantherboy, CheAhn and macsen.


Armies at 600 points

Athens (L Hoplite Greek) -no Spartan allies
Persia (Later Ach Persians 420-329BC only)
Egypt (28th-30th dyn)
Carthage (Early Carthaginian)
Syracuse (Early Syracusan)

Reminder of rules, new armies and terrain

This will be a team event with teams representing 4 world regions; UK and Republic of Ireland), Europe (excluding UK and ROI), North America (US & Canada) and Rest of World (all other places). .

Tournament Format

All teams will play against each other, hopefully this will make the final games even more exciting.

As before there will be a random draw to decide which teams are home and away

Teams, Captains and Selection

The teams;
Hannibal (representing British Isles) will be captained by ianiow
Caesar (representing North America) will be captained by batesmotel
Pyrrhus (representing Europe) will be captained by hidde
Alexander (representing RotW) will be captained by claymore

Each team will consist of 5 players.

The captain of each team;

- will determine which army each of his players commands.
- will have some influence regarding which armies fight each other (more later)
- may want to give guidance regarding army composition and tactics


Armies, Points and Terrain

The 5 armies for this tournament will be 600 points and are;
Athens (L Hoplite Greek) -no Spartan allies
Persia (Later Ach Persians 420-329BC only)
Egypt (28th-30th dyn)
Carthage (Early Carthaginian)
Syracuse (Early Syracusan)


ALL ALLIES CAN BE USED EXCEPT SPARTANS


The terrain (with match number) for this tournament are;
1. Mixed
2. Open
3. Very Open
4. Open
5.Mixed

Determination of Matches

The match-up of all 5 armies will be determined before any battles begin. The process for doing this is as follows;
- The captain of the away team will nominate an army to fight match number 1.
- After seeing the enemy army the captain of the home team will then nominate an army to fight match number 1. He will also propose an army to fight match 2.
- After seeing the enemy army the captain of the away team will then nominate an army to fight match number 2. He will also propose an army to fight match 3.
- After seeing the enemy army the captain of the home team will then nominate an army to fight match number 3. He will also propose an army to fight match 4.
- After seeing the enemy army the captain of the away team will then nominate an army to fight match number 4.
- Match 5 is determined by what's left.

N.B. A captain may not choose the same army for any match (i.e. civil war) unless it is the 5th match.

Both captains will then assign their players to the armies and PM them to me. I will publish them once I have received both selections.

Players then create their respective 600 point armies.

Each home player creates his battle (with FoW and double moves on), PMs his opponent and fights the battle. Note: This relies on both players to select the same terrain for the battle!

The winner should publish the results on this forum.

Determination of Tournament winner:

Matches: Between teams.
Games: Between players.

Points for games:
1 for a win, 0,5 for a draw, 0 for a loss. Winner of a match is the team with 3pts or more.
Points for matches:
2 for a win, 1 for a draw, 0 for a loss.
Winner of the tournament:
The team with most match points,
if equal the team with best ratio of game points for-against,
if equal the team with best ratio of breakpoints taken-lost,
if equal the team with most breakpoints taken.
