Even I miss the competitions, so for players it must be even worse.
No point in me going, at Tarrington last year I found myself about to ask the question "what happened to the half-inch and three-quarter-inch bases", since I have not used those sizes for about 50 (fifty) years, I realized how badly I was getting confused.
Hopefully about the middle of 2021 you will be back playing DBA competitions.
Keep an eye on the Danish Mink problem, if any get loose then pray, or move to the North Pole.
Lady Emily Community Hall Tarrington Herefordshire HR1 4EX
Tarrington is halfway between Hereford and Ledbury; approximately 11 miles from junction 2 of the M50.
Each player brings any valid 12-element v3.0 army on 15mm base sizes (40mm frontage), camp (camp follower element optional), and terrain for a legal battlefield as the defender, which may include provision of a specific legal board size.
Note that the army will be used by other players. • Players will play AGAINST their own army only in the first round. • Players will use their own army only in the final round. • Players will be matched using Swiss chess format. • Armies will be matched as far as possible to maximise variety (of army used and fought against) for players. • The 12-element army and terrain choices may not be changed between rounds (hence no dismounting!). • Players must attempt to place all terrain pieces supplied.
The aim is to have 6 rounds, but may be revised on the day.
Depending upon the number of players and the time to arrange the pairings for each round, there is no guarantee of non-repetition, but priority order will be given to:
1. New opponent each round
2. New army used each round
3. New opposing army each round
Cost will be £5 per player.
Further details may be necessary depending upon social restrictions applicable at the time.
