Fall In 2000: November 3-5, 2000. Gettysburg, PA. A 525 point MW tournament in both 15mm and 25mm scales and a 25mm only AW tournament will be held on Saurday. Three rounds of three and a half hours each. You must preregister with Terry to play.
VERY LIMITED SPACE!!! Preregister asap.
Demo games: The PEL will have listed three 'demo' games for four players each. Actually, each player will take a division in one of the tournament games (as 2iC) and learn the game under battle conditions. This was a huge success at Cold Wars, so we'll keep doing it.
RW: Dave Bonk will be doing a demo game of our new Renaissance Warfare rules in 25mm as well.
At Cold Wars and Historicon 2001, there will be MW and AW tournaments, in 25mm and in 15mm (if there is enough interest in this scale). Each army must be 525 points. Email me for the updates. There will be three rounds of three and a half hours each. TG
The first ever MW tournament is history. Jeff Ball won the trophy and also the 1st prize of 20 packs of Foundry figures (thank you Bryan). 2nd prize was split 3 ways, so we awarded Tony and Silvio Marra as well as Perry Gray and Kevin Boylan 5 packs of Foundry figures each. Thanks to all 14 of you who played.
At Fall In we will be doing both 15mm and 25mm scales. Please email me with your army and intent to play as I have to let Scott Holder know how many tables we need. The tourney will run Saturday, three rounds. I'll have more info up on the web site as we get finalised.
The big news is that Jeff Ball has joined SAGA as a rules writer and will be coordinating, playtesting and pretty much writing the Renaissance Warfare rules booklet. Jeff has been a huge help to us in the past in promoting the MW rules set and his expertise and gaming knowledge are essential components in making these rules the best on the market.
Finally, we have some rules changes that were the result of the tournament games.
No rivers or streams may run through the center two sectors of the field.
That's it for now.
- #1. All longbow-armed units, whether skirmishers, cavalry, whatever, now cost an additional 1 point per stand. this relfects their superior 'training' in the use of the weapon as well as its lethality.
- #2. Obstacles are now treated as Light Terrain. No more disorder for loose order foot crossing them.
- #3. On the Victory Points chart, we are adding two items.
1 Point if there are no non-skirmisher enemy units on your side of the table at the end of the battle. (This encourages aggressive play, instead of passive sit back and watch play).
Eliminate more enemy killed and replace with
1 Point for 50 points of enemy troops killed. (This eliminates non-aggressive tactics).
- #4. We are including a new optional tournament terrain generation table.
The table is divided into 6 equal sectors.
The player gets to select his desired terrain (from 0-5) each and then rolls a d10 to place.
- 1 or a 2 is a discard.
- 3 or a 4 is placed in the friendly left flank sector.
- 5 is placed in the friendly center sector.
- 6 is placed in the friendly right flank sector.
- 7 is in the enemy left flank sector.
- 8 is placed in the enemy center.
- 9 or 10 is placed in the enemy right flank sector.
- #1. Fish, Gore and Abrams 'relaxing' after a tough day on the job.
- #2. A young Mr. Taylor contemplating the Mongols next move inthe MW tournament.
- #3. Mike McVeigh keeps an eys on Phil Barker and a young lady playing in the DBA tournament.
- #4. Kevin Boylan about to face the dreaded Normans.
- #1. Mitch Abrams tries to explain to Paul Georgian how to use Byzantines....
- #2. The Marra brothers, Tony and Silvio, in a tema game of MW.
- #3. The cornfield at Antietam using Mister Lincoln's War.
- #4. Self-explanatory.
- #1. Sue Laflin-Barker, Phil Barker and Terry Gore at Historicon.
- #2. Kevin boylan looks on as Perry Gray tries to win the MW championship trophy by beating up on Jevon Garrett.
- #3. The MW tournament in full swing.
- #4. Dave Bonk, Jeff Ball and Lyle Bickley's 16-player Liegnitz MW mega-game.
