The WABGT 2013 onwards
There are going to be two events running at the same time:
1. The Grand Tournament (GT).
2. The General Melee (GM).
After suggestions received on the WAB Forum I have decided to run with two events at the same venue, the GT will remain the main event and will take priority over the GM. The GM is for people who do not wish to play in the GT or do not have an “in period Army”.
The periods for the GT will change yearly. The GM will cover any other army not “in period”
The periods for consideration for the GT games are:
2013. Any Pre 31 BC, Biblical & classical
2014. 600 AD - onwards Dark Ages & Medieval
2015. 100 BC - 700 AD Rome’s rise and fall
With this set up people could have just a couple of armies and be able to play each year. What do you think?
600 AD - onwards Dark Ages & Medieval is this too much? (not periods I normally play)
The GT and GM will use the Warhammer Armies of Antiquity supplement and the additional lists available on http://WWW.WABGT.CO.UK
web site for the army selection (when published). Any army of 3000 points or less selected from the time period before 31BC (No stone throwers allowed.), will be considered a fair army for the Grand Tournament (GT) 2013.
Any other army (not in period) from AoA may be used in the General Melee Games (GM).
All army list restrictions must be adhered too.
Additionally if you want to submit a historically based Army/list (please quote sources) that you want to use, we will look at it and once checked/amended publish it as a “tournament additional list” that can be used. So if you have a favourite army that is not covered by AoA then get typing
Scenarios can add a lot to an event as long as both sides have a good chance. Mixing up the type of game played mean that armies that succeed well in a pitched battle may not do so well in a different type of game. There will also be special instructions for individual tables or pieces of terrain (remember the city and crocodile swamp?).
The various scenarios will get published before the event but the table layouts etc. will not be known until the draw is made just prior to each game. I am to make sure no player plays on the same table twice or against the same player.
