A quick reminder that I am able to accommodate a couple more people at the Bakewell DBA Tournament on Saturday 18 June. We have around 16 people coming at the moment. and it should be giood fun. The theme is Bakewell TARTers and tARTillery - ie legal armies from any period but must have at least 4 elements that are LH and/or Artillery.
Firstly, I am delighted to be able to say that all round good guy John Roberts, from Naismith and Roundway ( naismithandroundway.co.uk ) has kindly offered to support the event by donating an unpainted DBA army as first prize and some assorted figures for other prizes. You may be aware that John has recently set up his business after acquiring the ranges from Navwar. The 15mm DBA army will be Medieval German IV/13d – so you will have plenty of time to paint all those lovely landsknechts in preparation for Mercian 2017!
Secondly, the latest list of contestants (18 in all!) is:
Pete Duckworth, Paul Murgatroyd, Simon Wilson, Denis Grey, Sean Pratt, Richard Pulley, Phil Johnson, Tom Whitehead, Graham Fordham, Tamara Fordham, Scott Russell, Frank Shaw, Pete Whyman, Martin Myers, John Saunders, Arnaud Marmier, Neil Mason, Philip Donald.
I have e-mailed all those coming with some final details so please let me know via this forum if you did't get that e-mail.
I am pleased to say that the Bakewell Tournament was well attended with 14 participants.
Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and prizes were kindly donated by John Roberts of Naismith and Roundway Miniatures at www.naismithandroundway.co.uk First prize was a Late German army that would be most eligible for Pete Duckworth's Mercian Tournament next year, themed on the Italian Wars
