There were many great looking armies and camps used.
I found the Carthaginian camp with observation post particularly interesting.
Yes, it gives a new meaning to 'held to his post'! Who exactly he was was a moving target, but I couldn't really complain about the performance of my troops; they usually did better than expected when outmatched due to unfortunate deployment choices.
Thanks Mark. I'm very pleased you enjoyed yourself.
I have been looking a little more at the results. There were actually in interesting spread of results across the DBA sections on Saturday. Brian and Greg Kelleher for example had a strong morning though a more difficult afternoon on the first day. While others, such as Mark Baker and Greg Wells had the reverse. Others managed to have a more solid day overall. Examples are Jim in second and Mark Davies who secured third place overall. It was pleasing to see such an interesting spread with different players doing well at different times. Indeed, 2nd to 5th places were very much fought for and every point counted.
The BBDBA competition was interesting as well, with top placings being only separated by a narrow margin. I need to consider ways of adding greater granularity to the BBDBA scoring though.
The most important point however was both days were most noticeable for the many excellently painted armies and the very pleasant way all the games were played. I think the last point was the key item that made DBA at Conquest real success.
