Militia Brabantia organises

Wargames Club, Militia Brabantia, invides you for our second Open Warhammer Ancient Battles tournament. We are especially inviting the wargames clubs in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany and the United Kingdom. But players not united into a club are of course also very welcome!

We expect quite a lot players from abroad, so all rules and scenarios will be available in English.

 

 

Where & when?

The Tournament will be held in the village of Uden in Noord-Brabant in the Netherlands. Uden lays between Eindhoven and Den Bosch along the new A50 highway.

It will be held on Saturday the 6th or March and Sunday the 7th of March.

12:00 till 13:00 lunch. (if you have a special diet or needs, please let us know a.s.a.p.)

On Saturday we will go to a restaurant. You are invited to join us. (Costs for the restaurant are not included in the entry fee.)

 

 

The campaigns  

During these days we will be running two campaigns at the same time. The first will be from 490 BC up to 476 AD; the classical world from the Persian wars up until the fall of the West Roman Empire. The second one will be situated in the Dark Ages until the battle of Hastings; 476 AD until 1066 AD. It will not be possible to enter both campaigns.

We will play three battles on Saturday and two on Sunday, the last one being a double.

We will have some ten interesting scenarios set up for you. So do not expect only simple pitched battles!

The scenarios we will play will be made available a few weeks before the tournament.

 

 

The Armies  

The armies will be 1500 points. There are a few armies that Militia Brabantia can lend to the players. But they are limited, so please inform us as soon as possible if you want to use these.

The Dark Ages tournament will use these books:

-Shieldwall

-El Cid

-Age of Arthur

Only 1 frenzy unit per army, no crossbows, no lances. Secondly if an army from the Age of Arthur supplement faces off against an army from either the Shieldwall or El Cid supplement, than the units from Age of Arthur will have warband rules 1,2 and 3 as suggested in the Age of Arthur supplement by the authors.

The Ancient world Tournament uses these books:

-Armies of Antiquity (Greeks)

-Alexander the Great and his successors

-Spartacus

-Fall of the West

-Hannibal and the Punic Wars

-Romans and barbarians from the rulebook

Please note that we allowed for players to enter armies which are drafted from the Mercenary list from the Alexander supplement!

We play with  25/28mm painted figures.

 

 

Stands  

We hope to welcome a few companies too. Ancient Warfare and Comitatus Figurines have confirmed they will be present.

 

 

Food & Drinks  

Included into the entry fee will be a lunch on both days, and some drinks. We will present you with some typical Dutch snacks during the day.

There is a bar and a snack-bar in the building to prevent you from dying of thirst or hunger if the food we provide is not enough.

On Saturday we will go to a restaurant. You are invited to join us. (Costs for the restaurant are not included in the entry fee.)

 

 

Lodgings  

We have made you a list of hotels and B&B’s in or in the vicinity of Uden. Some are quite expensive so check the prices! The hotels in Eindhoven are the cheapest ones but you’ll need to drive about 20 kilometres to Uden.

There are also a few beds available at some of the members of Militia Brabantia. You will know these people already. So don't hesitate to ask them if you can stay with them.

 

 

  How to get to Uden 

For people arriving by train or airplane, we will gladly pick you up and drive you to your hotel or B&B. But please let us know in advance so we can work out a schedule.

At the bottom is a list of things worth seeing in the vicinity of Uden. So if you are planning on staying longer go visit these great sites!

 Prizes  

Playing Warhammer Ancient Battles is a lot of fun. We want to reward the people that excel in one or more of the following important aspects of the hobby:

1) Most sympathetic player

2) Best painted army

3) Best player

The prizes are paid from the entry fee and from the donations of our sponsors (notably Gripping Beast and Grand Manner). But having a good time is always more important than winning. That will be an important part of this weekend.

On Sunday, after the last battle, we will claim a few minutes to honour the winners and hand of their prizes.

 

 

Entry  

The entry is 25 euro.

 

Deadline  

Entry will close on the 15th of February 2010. There is only place for about 50 players. So react as soon as possible!

 

 

Fair Play  

We are surely looking forward to this tournament. And we will try to do everything to give you a nice weekend. We will keep the following in mind:

We play for fun. A Battle is only played well when both players have had a nice time.

When in doubt about a situation on the game board think if it would have been possible in a real situation. Ask the referee if you can not work things out.
