Wimp Wars -DBA Tournament
Session 2 (Fri 2pm-6pm)
GM: Tony Aguilar
Want to play DBA without worrying about someone using a "Killer
Army"? Here is your chance. This is an "Open" Tourney with all armies
having a minimum of 6 elements of either Psiloi and/or Light Horse.
What are you waiting for? Bring out your Wimps! Some loaner armies
will be available. Any army can be used from the army lists in DBA
2.2, but they must have a minimum of either Psiloi and/or Light
Horse. For each element of Psiloi and/or Light Horse that you have
more than your opponent. You will be able to reduce the aggression of
your army by one.
DBA Midnight Madness
Session 3 (Fri 8pm-12 midnight)
GM: Martin Schmidt
This double elimination event is based on the `tried and true' format
run at the `Big East' conventions. Each player brings his favorite
army from the 2.0 or 2.2 rulebook and we play standard `one on one'
games until one player claims the final victory. Loaner armies are
available for use (several of which have even won this tournament in
beginner\'s hands!) Please arrive promptly for this event as the
sooner we start the sooner we finish and can get to bed to be ready
for the next full day of gaming!
Sponsored by NASAWM. NICT qualifier.
HMGS South DBA 'Matched Pairs' Championship
Session 5 (Sat 2:00pm-6:00pm)
GM: Martin Schmidt
Bring a pair of well matched armies who were historical enemies.
Choose wisely as your opponent gets to pick which army of the two
they wish to use against you! Four rounds total against four
different opponents, two with your pair of armies, two using someone
else's. Both armies of the pairing must be based for the same scale
but either 25mm or 15mm scale armies may be used. Alternate scale
basings are also permitted (such as masses of 6 mm figures on 25 mm
bases) but both armies must use the same size figures. Those planning
to bring 25 mm army pairs or needing to borrow a pair of armies
should contact the Tourney Director as early as possible.
Return of the Necromancer-Part III
Session 7 (Sun 9:00am-1:00pm)
28 mm Hordes of the Things v2
GM: Jason & Martin Schmidt
Yes it is the never ending saga of the Necromancer and his minions
against the Elven Mage King and his allies. The battle record now
stands 1-1! Who will win the 'series'? Mass battle Hordes of the
Things. It is easy to learn, fast and most of all fun! Players
familiar with the rules are welcome to bring their own 24AP force of
25-28mm troops and join either side.
