Home From Iceni 2014 in Hoveton

Coltishall Cowards 500 AP DBM Doubles Tournament

Arrived home after a tiring weekend of rolling dice, cursing a succession of 1's yet still managing to achieve third place after holding the eventual winners to a 5-5 Draw [Jer Morgan/John Calvert] and narrowly beating the second place team 6-4 [John Graham-Leigh/Russell King]. Jer/John and John/Russ were tied for first place but John/Russ lost out on count back due to my winning my game against them.

I learnt a few new things by playing who are probably the best UK DBM players.

Heres my army list.

Army [500 AP]

87/77.5/39 to break

Over the weekend I used mobile baggage, on reflection I should have taken immobile baggage but I guess I could have just declared that all my camels were tethered. I never had to move them and being immobile I would not have to hold them if a command broke.

Heres are a few pictures of the first days two games. Being engrossed in playing games on the Sunday meant I forgot to take any pictures.
