YORK Sunday 7th Feb 2016 Impetus Tournament

Post by Cyrus The Adequate on Thu Nov 05, 2015 8:29 am

The traditional first meeting of the UK tournament season is back. We will be holding a 28mm tournament at the Vapnartak wargaming show at York on 7th Feb 2016. Details will follow BUT please note spaces will be limited to a maximum of 12 players so get your names down early

Format will be 28mm 350 pts 2+ commands open (unless Lorenzo confirms the shift to 400pts)

If you are interested please let me know - earlier the better

Hi Guys

I'm trying to revive the Impetus competition at York this year. We have some tables booked, so now I need some entries :-)

Lorenzo has asked us to try the "new" 28mm 400pt format which will be in the new Advanced Impetus \ Tournament rules update as soon as he gets it out, but basically is the same as the 350 - at least 2 commands except you dont half the maxima of the most numerous troop type in your list

I appreciate this is a bit out of the backfield but please try and support if you can, our previous competitions there were well received and usually fun, so it would be a shame to lose such a useful opening venue. If you know anyone else who may be interested please pass this on

Entry fee is £10 payable to paypal@yorkwargames.org with a note to say it is for the Impetus competition

Still roughing the timings out but something like

Registration 9.15-9.30
1st game 9.30-11.30
Lunch 11.30-12.30
2nd game 12.30-14.30
3rd game 14.30-16.30

New Years Resolution, must play more Impetvs!

This competition is very tempting, do we have a minimum number of players for it to definitely run? I only ask because I would need to book accommodation...

Err 2 - that would be me and you :-)

However I'm hoping to catch up with a few locals in the new year so I expect we should have at least a half a dozen

Hi,

I would like to register my interest in playing in York. Need to arrange some things but pretty sure I can make it. Just thought I would post in case, like me, there were others lurking in the background waiting to see if it is a goer or not.

Regards

John

That's great news. I've been taken in to hospital for the last week so I'm passing the organisation baton to Paul Davison who will be along here soon.

Current numbers are six including Jon and Aurelius so far with a couple of others possible. We still have a month so it would be more than possible to get ten.

Some one mention my name? It seems I have been volunteered (voluntold!) to do the organising since Ken had drawn a yellow card from the Grim Reaper.

A reminder to send in your entry fee.

£10 to  paypal@yorkwargames.org with a note to say that its for the Impetus completion.

Paid so far:
1) Me
2) Ken
3) JR2
4) Tony

Is Gareth Steel one of ours? The organiser has an entry fee but doesn't know what for.

Paul

Hi,

I can confirm my attendance and have paid the competition fee.

Please can we clarify the rules around the 400 points system? The post at the beginning of this thread states that only the maxima of the most numerous troop type in the army is not halved.

Under the General Discussion board there is an active discussion around the 400 points system that concludes that none of the maxima need to be halved.

Need to be sure before I start painting the extra 50 points.

OK, I'm in.

I'm assuming 400pts open, half minimums, full maximums.

(I'm guessing it will be Charles the Bold again!)

I know they told me entries were closed but we have an odd number so I cant see them objecting

Rather than going through too much list checking and the like I would propose we have a public posting of army lists for scrutiny. I'll kick off by posting mine, which will be Early Achaemenid, in the next day or so just as soon as I have finalised it. Hopefully we can get them all posted by this coming Sunday.

I'm also proposing we cut down on time at York by doing the first round draw prior to the event and posting here. As usual I will try and arrange for any club players to avoid their regular opponents as it seems silly to drive for an hour or more just to play the same guy you play every week. If any of you are regular opponents can you post here to let me and Paul know?

Cheers

btw battle report from our practice match here

Hi There...

I have just had confirmation that I can be in the competition.

John Ryan & I are in the same club so not facing him in the first round would be nice!

I will see how to present my army list over the weekend!
