Editors Note: This was taken from a thread on Fanaticus posted by Macbeth commenting on the event.
“It was a pretty successful competition all up – with a total of 15 entries turning up on the day, only one of the expected players failed to show and we assume was taken up by the rapture.
Relics and Pavisiers figured prominently and I won’t pretend that there weren’t problems. Some confusion about shooting factors for 8Pv occurred in the early games and a lot of obsession about the possiblilty of scarily stacking up the support factors was aired at the start – but like the double support of Ps and Sp against Kn such facors are possilbe but hard to achieve, even harder for Relics since they cannot move into contact.
In the end there must have been some good in the new elements because the event was taken out by Communal Italian with both types in play, and the Magister Militum Prize was taken by the Early Hebrews hefting their Relic.
We were blest with numerous fanatici on the day
Doug, MarkBB, Gregorius, Memnon, Scipio, Titus Pullo and Andrew Ford were all there.
It was perhaps the most exciting final round we have had in years, after Doug Melville beat David Phillips in round 5, putting 1st place within reach of a number of generals depending on how the round 6 results fell.
The Magister Militum Prize went to Chris Burg and his Early Hebrews, boosted specifically by a victory over the Free Company.
Steve Jones won the Executioner Award for killing 5 elements in battle with the Hebrews
