Default Cold Wars 2012 DBA PEL Information

DBA, HotT & DBxVariants at Cold Wars
Players should bring their own armies (unless event description notes that figures will be provided or that loaners will be available) as well as terrain (some terrain is available for communal use); all battlefields are provided. Players must show up at events 15 minutes prior to the posted start time for assignments. Sign up for all events at the NASAMW DBA registration table. Some online pre-registration is available for specific events where listed in the event details. Please contact David Schlanger with any questions: buckynduke@gmail.com

Special Cold Wars Rule Modification: Unless noted in a specific event description, all DBA events will allow dismounting in the first bound ONLY. All other rules related to dismounting remain the same.

The 2012 Manly Cup: The Long Island Bostwicks bring you The Manly Cup! This is an award that is designed to find and recognize those DBA players that are the absolute gutsiest. Those that always seem to make those moves that don't necessarily make sense, but adopt that "Go Big or Go Home" attitude. This "event" begins the first evening of the convention (Thursday, this year) and ends Saturday night. The player that has been recognized as making the most Manly (read "gutsy") moves throughout this period will be declared The Manliest Man (or woman!) of Cold Wars, and will be awarded the prestigious Manly Cup!

This event is the fantasy equivalent of the DBA matched pairs format. Players bring two 24 AP armies in the same scale which share a theme of the player’s choice. You can bring Orcs vs Dwarves, Atreides vs Harkonnen, Christians vs
Pagans, Empire vs Rebels or whatever pair your imagination can cook up. Published lists are welcome as are home brewed lists.
Players alternate being guests and hosts. Hosts offer guests their pick of the army pair and play the other army themselves.
Optimal pairs are balanced and should offer interesting challenges to both guests and hosts. Players are encouraged to test play their pairs in advance.
Note that this format allows both 15mm and 25mm pairs since armies are matched. With no published lists, players should provide two army lists to aid guests’ selection of side.
Loaners are available. Just commit to playing on the fanaticus discussion thread to get one.
GM: Terence McPartland

5pm-Midnight
DBA Campaign Theme
Omnia Pro Pecunia Facta Sunt!
(15th c. latin motto -- all things are done for money)
22 players
It is Northern Italy, 1415 AD. The wealthiest city states in Europe, nay, the World. But does wealth bring contentment? Not a bit -- it brings Pride, and Envy, and Avarice; it brings Warfare. And lots of money means lots of very, very capable mercenaries! The Condottieri were sought-after hirelings on short-term contracts, switching allegiance like newly-fired
hockey coaches. Empire beckons, and Immortal Glory, and Wealth beyond count.
Announcing a Two Davids Campaign Theme
for Cold Wars 2012: Condotta Chaos.

Advance signup is very strongly encouraged. You may sign up online at the following thread on the DBA Fanaticus bulletin board:
http://www.fanaticus.org/discussion/...ad.php?t=12073

Powers are:
Venice (Tommaso Mocenigo, Doge of Venice)
Venetian Dalmatia
Verona
Aquileia (Louis of Teck, Patriarch of Aquilaia)
Bergamo
Milan (Filippo Maria Visconti, Duke of Milan)
Savoy (Amadeus VIII, Count of Savoy and future anti-pope)
Genoa
Mantua (Gianfrancesco Gonzaga, Lord of Mantua)
Ferrara
Modena
Bologna
Florence (Niccolo da Tolentino)
Ancona (Guidantonio da Montefeltro, Duke of Urbino)
Spoleta
Siena (Niccolò Piccinino)
Naples (James II, Count of La Marche)
Papacy (Anti-Pope John XXIII)
Swiss Confederation (IV/79 Later Swiss)
Trent (Prince-Bishop George of Liechtenstein)
(IV/13b Medieval German)
Styria (Ernest the Iron, Archduke of Inner Austria and Duke of Styria) (IV/13b Medieval German)
Hungary (King Sigismund) (IV/43c Later Hungarian)

The Swiss Confed will use an alternate list that better covers the army of the Swiss in that period, when they were making the transition from Halberds to Pikes: 1x 4Pk or 3/4Bd (Gen),
1x 2LH or 2Ps, 3x 4Pk, 5x 3Bd or 5x 4Bd, 2x 2Ps.

Trent and Styria use the Medieval German list, but no Pike option.

Pavisier rules for 8Bw and Raiders rules for 3Bd will be used; both have appeared in several previous Campaign Themes.

All Condotta Knights may dismount as 4Bd. All dismounting is at deployment ONLY.
GM: David Kuijt and David Schlanger
(Two Davids)

Sunday:
9AM-Noon

I don't think I understand the distinctions of acceptability when it comes to your views on heresy... Like: Hordes will not be quick killed by shooting, but will instead recoil.

I don't see the problem, he's being completely consistent.

If it's a change he prefers, it's not heresy. If it's something he doesn't want, it is heresy.

So you're saying... this is Larry?




Strange, he doesn't look like a Penguins fan at all...

No, this.



The photo DK selected only proves he is not only a heretic but an apostate.

It is not heresay when it is a special rule for the event. Kinda, sorta like fast blade and fast spear. I never called that heretical because it was a special rule for the event.

David, I would love to play the Early Hebrews for the Pyramid Tourney. It is about time that army saw bloodshed. Maybe more of their own then the enemies, but they will go out for bagels and locks afterwards. Better lock up all the sweeteners and extra condiments....

I would recommend against that since it will be after sundown and they will not fight.
