28mm Impetus Competition York Sunday 5th February 2017

Post by Cyrus The Adequate on Mon Oct 03, 2016 8:44 am

The traditional start to the Impetus Competition calendar in the UK is York in February

I'll be running a competition at the Vapnartak show in York on 5th February 2017. "Vappa" is a superb venue - held at the Racecourse the facilities are excellent. York Wargames Club are both friendly and well organised and we usually have a great day
gaming.

Running Order (provisional)
Doors open 09:00 & Registration
Game 1 09:30-11:30
Lunch \ shopping 11:30-12:30
Game 2 12:30-14:30
Game 3 14:30-16:30

This will be a 400 pt 28mm competition over the usual 3 rounds.

Army Selections

Armies should be selected from the Ancients category - - sub periods 1, 2 & 3, so no Dark age, Medieval or Renaissance armies, and to concentrate the theme a little more excluding Ancient Chinese, so allowable armies from Volumes 1 through to 9.

Please check the errata here http://dadiepiombo.it/pdf/exerrae.pdf

Army composition

Armies must contain 2 to 4 Commands. Cowardly Generals cannot be used in this competition.

The larger Command must not exceed 60% of VDT. Halve minimums on the army list

All armies should be painted and should include a camp if appropriate.

Army Lists should be submitted for peer review either on the Facebook Event Page or the Impetus Forum thread for this event – details below, no later than Friday 27th January 2017

Terrain and Rules amendments

The competition will be run using the Impetus Rules published by Dadi & Piombo with the amendments from the most recent edition of Advanced Impetus, a free copy of which can be obtained here http://dadiepiombo.it/pdf/advancedeng2015.pdf

Some basic terrain will be provided however to minimise the transport load on the organisers we would appreciate it if players bring some terrain, particularly those items they intend to use as we cannot guarantee availability of everything.

Competition Entry

Entry fee is £10 per player. Payment for entries needs to be made directly to York Wargames Club via their PayPal Account paypal@yorkwargames.org

Please tag your payment Vapnartak - Impetus and give your name not your forum id. Could I also ask you put it down as a payment to a friend - it helps them avoid too many fees.

Please get your entry fees paid in asap as it helps sooth my nerves :-)

We have confirmation of TEN tables - so a maximum of 20 entries which will make this our biggest competition in quite a while

1. Shaun Rimmer (PAID) Mid Republican Roman
2. Andy Walls (PAID) 2nd Punic Wars Carthaginian
3. Fred Taylor (PAID) Thessalian
4. Ken Natt (PAID) Thracian
5. James Irvin (PAID) Goth
6. Chris Coles (PAID) Ancient Briton
7. Steven Johnson (PAID) Early Imperial Roman
8. Jon Webb (PAID) Samnite
9. Frazer Watson (PAID) Middle Republican Roman

The only ancients I have is a half-painted Ancient Britons army so I even know what I am bringing!

BIG UPDATE - we have confirmed up to ten tables so if there are anyone else wishing to take part let me know. Can I ask you make your entry payments to York Wargames themselves using the details in the main post.

This is looking like it could be a great opener to 2017

Just to let you know we have another sponsor - Magnetic Displays \ Coritani. They are great for magnetic displays (doh!) but they also carry a really useful line of scenery items great for making Camps for your armies

Old Glory UK will be providing a prize too - cant be specific yet but in the past they have been particularly generous so fingers crossed.

And Annie (The Dice Bag Lady) will also be sponsoring us

OK general update

First GET YOUR HANDS IN YOUR POCKET and pay the entry fee please! I've updated the initial list to show who has been a responsible person. Joking aside I would appreciate it if you got paid up so we are square with the organisers.

Secondly this is starting to look like one of the best sponsored events we've had. So far due to begging and blagging we have

Warbases - who will be providing some event only measuring sets
Old Glory -
Coritani -
Bad Squiddo -
Lorenzo -
Asgard WarGames
