The Conquest convention is held each year in Christchurch New Zealand. As with other years a 15mm DBA competition will be held.
The date is Saturday the 5th November and Sunday 6th November (BBDBA). The player briefing is at 8.45am on Saturday with games starting at 9am. Games last one hour.
The competition will comprise six rounds divided into an Ancient and Medieval Section each of three rounds. The Ancient Section requires army with a list dating between 3000BC to 450AD. The Medieval Section requires an army with a list date from 451AD-1520AD. Each list is limited to a specific year or sub-period with no change of elements during the course of the Section from that selected in the first round.
With increasing interest in DBA, since the release of DBA 3.0, I have decided to expand Conquest's DBA event back to a two days. Conquest is a two day convention supporting a range of rule systems held each year in Christchurch. DBA for many years has been part of Conquest.
For the second day Of Conquest I have considered a number of formats including more standard DBA events, a campaign or BBDBA. After much thought I have opted for the following format.
Saturday will remain a six round tournament with three games using Ancient armies and three games using Dark Age or Medieval armies. This provides lots of opportunity for using different armies within a single day. Sunday, the expanded day, will have a three round BBDBA tournament.
