Huzzah! 2015 Impetus Tourney

Post by GamesPoet on Mon May 11, 2015 6:14 pm

Huzzah! Con is in it's 6th year.

This is probably the 4th year that there's an Impetus tourney being played.  The convention is a 3 day event, and it is less than a week away, May 15 to 17, 2015.

Here is a link to the convention site ...  http://www.huzzahcon.com/

Here is a link to the Impetus tourney info ... http://www.huzzahcon.com/1/Content2/26

The Impetus tourney is on Friday, May 15th 2015, starting at 10am.

Participants sign up for the convention in advance or at the convention.

Traditionally it goes at least three rounds, armies capped at 300 points (command structure, commanders, an destiny points included), and figures are 25 or 28mm.  Army lists that can be used go from Ancients through 1071AD (Battle of Manzikert).

Prizes so far have been contributed by Impetus, Aventine, and Scale Creep, thank you!

So far we have the following signed up ...

Macedonians
Normans
Late Persians
More Macedonians
Romans
Sassanids
More Normans or Byzantines

5 tables are planned, and so we have room for at least 3 more players, and if we get 4 more, or there is an odd number of players, then the Sassanid army's owner will run the tourney only.  Rumor has it that we have enough scenery to put together a 6th and 7th table if there is enough participants, although in the past we've only gotten 1 or 2 who've signed up at the door, so we'll see.

Also, baggage camps are not a necessity, winning is determined by crushing the enemy or making them flee the field.

Besides, the Persians aren't interested in giving up those fine garments that they carry with them on campaign anyway. ; )

Looks good. I will have to keep this in mind for next year. I would suggest moving up to 350 points going forward.

My camera was on the wrong setting, didn't discover the problem until my evening session at the convention, and so ended up with no pictures of the Impetus tourney.  Most disappointing, and my apology.

However, regarding the results ...

1st Place ... Carolingians
2nd ... Late Persians
3rd ... Byzantines
4th ... Macedonians
5th ... Normans
6th ... Sassinids

One of the original Macedonian players opted to go with Carolingians instead, and for the win.  Congrats!

This tourney has been using 300 points for the last 3 years primarily because folks were looking to encourage other's who might be interested in starting an army. When the tourney first began, the Basic Impetus armies were used, and again because there was an intent to make it easier for folks to make an initial commitment.

Wondering why going to 350 is being suggested?

Mainly because 350 has become the predominant world standard for Impetus 28mm tournaments. Also, in moving to 350 points the armies are surprisingly more varied. The requirement for a minimum of 2 commands makes for more interesting army designs than 300 points.
