Now - want to tell us?
Sparticus will be there. Building the camp right now which will have the flaming log ready to roll over any would be camp sackers.

I wanted to answer yes but I will go a step further to say that almost all NASAMW events will follow the rules exactly.
All games will be played on the battlefield sizes listed in the rules except
The big battle doubles will be expanded to 60"
Some of the Sunday morning themes will be on 32" wide boards.
See here for a detailed list of events. Unless otherwise noted the standard battlefield size will be used.

not having 2.2 yet might I ask what exactly is the 25mm standard battlefield size for 2.2?

I'm bringing Sparticus again. Faced a lot of Knight armies at Coldwars and managed to give some scares but I don't expect this one to be an open Tournament winner.

If anyone wants a loaner to use in the 25mm open, let me know the army and the options you want.

Anything in the book huh?
Bob, I didn't know you had that much lead!
What is it really?
If I remember right you have:
WOR English (IV/83a)
Trojan War (I/26 a or b)
Ancient British (II/53)

I think I can field most of the armies in DBA but somtimes with Generic troops.
I am missing some esoteric types. I tried to make a Pre-islamic Arab nomad army for the Duplicate but could not come up with Arab 4Bd types. I needed 3 per army but I guess I could have rebased some Moghul fast blades or other arab types to 4 man stands for just 3, but not the 12 needed for the Duplicate (4 armies). I wanted a Camel army to face a Roman one, in Dry terrain so went with Nobades who have spears but only 3 camels compared to the Nomads who have 5.
Now I do not have Mound Builders or Northwest Americans or Dog People but could we use Eastern Forest types. I have Maori which double as Polynesian as they are blades but not the Hawaian or Melenesian option that have spears. The Melenesian army has the same make up as the Argrive Greeks 1/52 but the later has 4 figure element spears instead of 3 but why not go with the shallower bases. Terrain is different and aggression of the Greeks is 2 vs 1.
I would love to see a list of armies that are the same combination of elements.
Well, anyway, I can make up quite a few of the DBA armies. Oh, yes some will have DBR numbers per element. but that should be ok.
