Basic Impetus 2 Comp, January 2018?

Post by Aurelius on Mon Oct 30, 2017 10:03 am

I've brought the confirmed details for the Basic Impetus competition to the beginning of the thread for clarity. Note the date is confirmed as Sunday 7 January, other dates mentioned in this thread were earlier proposals!

The Battle of Evesham 2018

I've reserved four tables at Big Orbit Games Evesham branch for Sunday January 7 2018. The venue are not charging us for the day and parking is free.

This will be a "open" 28mm competition, i.e. any list from the published rule book. Ace's restricted to set 1 from the rule book. I hope to be able to schedule in 4 games of 90 minutes each during the day. Doors open at 10:00, first game at 10:30. We will need to bring our own terrain, I can bring some basic terrain along but players will need to bring own resources if they want something specific! We will also need to bring cloths, I can provide 2.

We can leave announcing army and option choice until the day. Round 1 will be a random draw with the usual "fiddle" factor applied to avoid frequent opponents meeting to early. Although with such a small group we will almost certainly get to play everyone.

With Roger's permission we will use the scoring system he used last year.

Snacks (chocolate bars / crisps / muffins etc) and soft drinks are available at the venue, (they will appreciate it if we buy one or two items at the snack bar). Players will need to bring own tea or coffee or any special diets. I will organise a light buffet for lunch time. Alternatively there is a cafe next door.

As the venue are not charging us it will be polite to give them a bit of trade, either through their snack bar, or maybe buy some of their paint / tool supplies, board or card games.

The Venue:

Big Orbit Evesham
Cadbury Courtyard
Blackminster Business Park
Blackminster
Evesham
Worcestershire
WR11 7RE

Players so far;
Roger C
Jez Todd
Matt Todd
Gareth
Ross B
Tony D
Peter D

I think that covers most points, I'll post anything else i think of on here.

Tony

Hi Tony. I’d really have liked to come, but my brother-in-law is visiting that weekend. He doesn’t come down south very often, so I don’t think I can get away for a whole day.

I’d thought of re-doing the Kingston Seymour Challenge again next year, but that can be later in the year.

Hi Roger,

20/21 January was just a first guess, I could try Saturday 13th January as an alternative?

Jez, that's great. Would you be OK with 13th?

Hi again Tony. 13 January looks fine, if that is OK for others. Thanks for considering moving the date.

I'll mention it to Ross and others, in case the aren't watching the forum.

Best wishes

That's great Gareth.

Looks like January 13 is to be preferred.

I reckon we have 6 players so far. Still room for some more. I'll put up a list later with more details...

Ross Broadstock has asked me to say that he will be coming, to take our numbers up to 6. Apparently, he’s forgotten his sign-in.

If 4 games are planned, and we have odd numbers, we can have one player each round having a bye, as we did in the BI2 tournament in March.

Best wishes

Hi all,
" Open " in the original post - I assume this refers to period, I.e. Any list goes?

Yes, any list with options from the published rule book. Should be enough choices there...

Unfortunately it turns out that Saturday January 13th coincides with a new product launch at the games venue, so they cannot fit us in that day. They can offer the weekend of 6/7 January, 20/21 January or Sunday 28. Can potential players give a view of their preference? (I know Roger cannot make the 20th, so focus on the other dates!).

I can make either 6/7 or 28th. A slight preference for the latter, but can fit in with others.

I’ll ask Ross if he’s any preferences.

Hi All - just posting on behalf of Matt and myself. Sunday 7 Jan would be our top preference. Sunday easier for both of us to be able to come.

Thanks, Tony. I’ve also let Ross know the date, etc.

By all means use the scoring system we has in our last BI2 tournament. It is easy for everyone, particularly to organizer! I can also bring some cloths, and terrain templates. I note we are restricted to the aces from the rulebook.

Thanks again for organising this.

Looking forward to meeting the gang again and to kicking off the new year with a round or two of BI2!

It's proving problematic sourcing food supplies on the Sunday, but I've checked with the local Cafe and they do take-out options as well as eat-in. So between the cafe and the venues own snack bar we should be OK.

Tony

Are there 7 players so we should ask around to see if can get one more ??

Any clues on armies - if I can finish some Teutonic Knights might bring those (need a couple of foot units for the Basic Impetus army), otherwise could be Samurai again.

Hi Jez,

7 names confirmed so far. Have heard of some possible new players, but nothing definite. So if you have any other contacts, another definite would be good.

I've not asked for army lists in advance as they are listed in the book and hardly need any checking. But for the record I'll be using either Samurai or maybe Wars of Roses Lancastrians, I've not decided yet. its been a busy few weeks!

Sadly, haven't managed to focus on one painting project, so hoping my Seljuks Turks have learnt to duck when shot at by longbows.

I’m sorry to have to let you know that it is unlikely Ross Broadstock will be able to get to this tournament. I‘ve just had an email from him saying his mother was rushed into hospital yesterday. She isn’t well at all, and Ross doesn’t think there will be enough improvement by Sunday for him to get away.

We should still have 6 players, and Ross has said he’ll come along if he can. He apologises for any disruption to the tournament as he was keen to attend. I’ve told him not to worry about us, and we’ll be thinking of him.

I’ll see you all on Sunday.
