On the 28th-29th of Febuary 2004 RINIWA in association with the Trinity Gamers organised the semi-annual Leprecon 400AP DBM competition as part of the Leprecon gaming convention. This page contains some images of the day and the final results of the competition.
Unfortunately we had a poor turn-out for this event with several players being unable to make it at the last minute but we still had a few good games and some new faces in the winner's circle (which is always nice).
This was a 2-day, 4-round, 2-list 400AP open event using BHGS 0-32 scoring with +100AP for a win as practice for the upcoming IWF Individual World Championships in Rome. Cillian Cleland did the tough job of umpiring and painted the door prize - thanks Cill.

Here we see the Persians (left) deployed with a block of infantry in their centre and two large wings of cavalry. To their rear are cowering 86 elements of Persian "Hordes" representing approximately 86,000 men. In front of their main battle line they have scythed chariots, skirmishers and on the far flank Scythian/Bactrian heavy cavalry. The Macedonians on the right of the picture have a central phalax and wings of heavy cavalry, skirmishers and medium infantry deployed in echelon.
The Macedonians, as the invaders, went first rolling average PIPs. Alexander's wing advanced (including the Hypaspidists), and followed by the centre and Parmenio's brave Greek mercenary cavalry. The Macedonians had much better command and control because they had 4 regular commands that were fairly close to each other (Luke had included a scenario special rule that regular generals could only swap PIP dice if within 1800p).
