2009 DBMM Championship

Neil Grant will be looking for Army lists prior to the AGM, by 7 September. Following the use of incorrect armies this year the championship will return to the system where all army lists are published  online. This negates the advantages of most DBMM stratagems but will hopefully prevent what happened this year. DBMM lists can only be chosen from DBMM Lists Books 2 & 3.

DBM Impetuous Armies Competition 6/7 January 2007

This will take place on the weekend 6th/7th Jan 2007. The overall rules and cost will be as last competition-copies available if required. After the questionnaire circulated last meeting, the specific rules are:
 

At least 50% rounded up of element equivalents or points must be impetuous troops.

Once this criteria has been met, regular troops are allowed.
One regular sub general or ally general is allowed. Regular sub generals may not have any impetuous troops in their command. If this violates other list instructions, such as minimums of troop types per command, then the army may not be used.
Armies which otherwise would have met the criteria may change regular generals and sub generals to irregulars of the same type. Examples of this would be warring State Chinese (Chin) and Aztecs.

 

Lists to John Muir by 3rd December.

 After all the games for each round are completed, give your scores to me and I will rank the players in order. Then for the next round 1st plays 2nd etc. Players will only play each other once; so some shuffling may be necessary for some rounds.

 If, at the end, the top two players have not played each other, (the system makes that unlikely), a sudden death play-off will decide the winner

Dates for each Round

Ideally all games should be played on the assigned dates. Block these dates out in your calendar. This may not be possible for everyone but it is better for the fairness and progress of the tournament, so do your best.

 The dates are:

 

Round 1

12th December

Round 2

First meeting February

Round 3

First meeting April

Round 4

First meeting June

Round 5

First meeting August
