Well the title says it all, well done to our team (the Wild Geese) in Milan this weekend.
Mick Hessian, Richard Aynsley, Jan van Embden and Tony Bergin.
(Some Italians came 1st). Full results at http://www.tagmata.it/itc_2013_results.htm
Mick Hession has a detailed report below
I was the Wild Geese pool 1 player this year and chose Urartian, which I`d used in the Irish league last year. It's a good all-round army. My list was:
Mounted Command: 1xC-in-C RKnO, 4xRKnO, 6xICvO, 4xRAxS, 4xRPsO – 28 ME
Foot Command: 1xS-Gen RKnO, 12xRAxS, 8xRPsO – 24 ME
No details yet.
Probably FOG on Sat or Sat+Sun and 200AP DBMM on Sunday only.
Contact: David Houston
This is the planned date for 2013 but no details have been announced.
A call has gone out for ideas for new events at this year's show: http://www.iworg.com/node/245
The idea is to see if we can broaden then event a bit, as well as having a small DBMM competition, probably a 200AP Open, as in previous years.
this year I am looking for your ideas about games to play or run at Strongbow's Shield on August 3rd.
* In the past we have run 1-day DBM, DBMM and FOG competitions - but what if we broadened the event?
* Is there another period or type of game (historical battle, mini-campaign, demo or participation game, ...) that would get you into Dublin city centre on that day to play some wargames and meet fellow wargamers?
* Is there a type of game that you'd like to put on or run?
* Does your club have a favourite system or demo that you'd like to share with others?
This year's competition will be held in the Gamers' World shop on Sunday 14 th April. Format will be 3 rounds, army size max 200AP , any list.
Army List submission deadline: 1st April
