Hi Paul H

Jez here - did we play each other last year? I seem to remember some nasty Thracians .....

Anyway I think that makes 10 players in total with the two Paul's - Paul Davidson (Eddie Longshanks) and you to go on the list.

Yeah double figures!

Cheers Jez

Seljuk Turks

Slightly concerned about the lack of VDT, but here's my entry in case I change my mind:
Command 1 : Fair Commander 20pts*

2 x Ghulams. (6-2-B Comp bow C) VD=6 Pts=64
3 x Turcomans. (3-1-B Comp bow B) VD=6 Pts=75
Total = 195pts, 15VDT

Command 2: Fair Commander 20pts*
1 x Ghulams* (6-2-B- Comp bow c) VD=3 Pts=32
3 x Turcomans (4-1-B-Comp bow b). VD=6 Pts =81
2 x Daylami. (4-1-B-javelin). VD=4 Pts =38
2 x Archers. (2-0-C-short bow b). VD=2 Pts=14
2 x Javelins. (2-0-C-javelin). VD=2. Pts=14
Total = VDT 17 Pts 199
Scouting pts = 6
Command structure= poor

IMPORTANT

The organisers provide table covers but no terrain. I will be bringing "some" to use but if you absolutely have to have a particular terrain piece make sure you take some!

John - Free Companies list is interesting. German, French and English co-operating together???

If we are still going for a "historical" match up in the first round wonder if it will be Colin Venetian v my Late Samurai. Different parts of the world but we both have harquebus.

Looking forward to Saturday. Cheers Jez

Hi Ken

Happy to start with feedback and firstly thanks for being the organiser and for you and Paul to make the long trek down from the Northeast. This is fairly local for me and I thought it was a bit weird in the middle of nowhere but the parking and overall hall seemed fine.

OK had to queue a bit to get in and quite crowded competition gaming tables but these are small points.

The show seemed good and I liked the chance with a long lunch to look around properly and buy a few things. Pricewise I was OK paying £15 especially as we got the £5 discount voucher to spend on the day.

Games wise two worked well for me. I always get tired with three games in one day. I had a draw and loss (heavy loss really) but both games lasted a long time. Not sure how we would have fitted in another game if we had been doing three games on the day.

Perhaps if doing just two games whether a "theme" is better, but saying that Derby has up to now been the traditional open competition so anything goes ....

I would like to see a Basic Impetus competition in our yearly calendar but there is always the option to run something using gaming rooms in a local wargame shop or even a village hall (there was an good example of this earlier in the year).

Overall I enjoyed and will aim to try and make the trip to York next year.

Cheers Jez

Very much enjoyed my first games of Impetvs, despite the havoc john's longbows wreaked on my Cavalry.
I'd definitely be up for an informal Basic Impetvs event. Anywhere within a couple of hours of Chester is fine with me.

Post by Cyrus The Adequate on Mon Oct 23, 2017 5:48 pm

I've been thinking about the results and I suspect the 2 or 3 command thing certainly played against a couple of the less experienced tournament players. Splitting your army into two fairly equal halves just makes it easy for an opponent to pick one half off and break the whole army. I know a 50/50 split can work, particularly with heavy infantry armies or with huge warband armies but on the whole I think having 3 Commands allows you more flexibility assuming each has a function, ie there is enough of one troop type in each command to work effectively. On the other hand 3 Commands are certainly more fragile individually and you can end up spending significant a slice of points on Commanders. What do people think?

and a sort of addendum to that - I think Flank Marches are overpowered. I'm at a loss to think of a historical battle where they happen like they do in wargames. I suspect they're there because we expect them to be there because they always have been. Flank Marching really encourages 3 commands - both me and Paul D had armies set up to do it, but with hindsight I think it is a really just too open to abuse

Thoughts?

I've been thinking along the lines of 3 commands for my next 400pts army. It does seem to make sense as losing 1 command won't then push you off a cliff edge. I also like the idea of having a small, mobile command to hold back and then move 3rd. A drawback of that seems to be the limited units in which you can include a general. Un-included generals don't sound like a good plan, unless you also spend points on the command structure.
Plenty to think about before I finally decide what to paint for York. Options currently include Sung Chinese, Byzantine, Persian, Hoplite Greek, Ancient British etc,etc..

At our club we habitually use three commands for 400 points, it would be unusual if somebody only used two.

I have never used the flank march option to date. As I played Cyrus's Thracians in the competition, with hindsight I could of deployed much better to counter a FM. For example you could use terrain to block off one flank and then place enough units to defend against a FM but still have an advantage against those units on the table at the start.

I seem to remember I lost to Fraser using a FM with El Cid Spanish previously so obviously I am not learning from my defeats.
