  1. Report back from Iceni 2014
    Interesting first day gaming at Iceni.
    Usual issue for me is getting a result using 500 AP in 3.5 hours.
    My Khurosanian Samanid army performed reasonably well.
    First game was a 6-4 winning draw against Sha-T'o Turkish of John & Peter.
    Then I had to face Jer Morgan & John, Chiang & Ti. I held on to get a 5-5 draw against one of the best UK DBM players.
    The third round saw me play John Brooker's Later Carthaginian which ended 6-4 to me leaving me on 17 points going into the 4th and last round.
    Due to having already played Jer & John I ended up facing the Ottoman Turkish army of JGL & Russ. A very hard fought game that tought me even more things about DBM I thought I knew ending on yet another 6-4 to me.
    This gave me third place on 23 points behing the eventual Winners Jer & John and JGL & Russ in second place on countback.

    An enjoyable if very tiring weekend. Which I hope to repeat next year.

    Both of us lost a big command and given another 30 mins play they would have probably won by looking my baggage. But I might have cracked a second command so it was still all to play at time called.

    Tommorrow morning game is v Later Carthaginians (MM list)

    They are using the 10-0 system and the current leader is Ottomans on 18 points. So this is the army to beat tomorrow morning to open up the last round placings.

    The Welsh army being used is a vast Ax X version of a beast of an army. Not sure how well they are doing but theres so many to kill to beat it its quite formidable due to its EE size.
