BC’09 Conclusion: Results & Aftermath

Battlecry 2009

Well what a weekend – we had had two really intense full on challenging battles, one rather frustrating indecisive game, and one very decisive win. As with previous BattleCry events games were generally played in good spirits and the environment

BC’09 Round 2: Medieval Portuguese & English Allies 1385AD

Battlecry 2009

For our afternoon challenge we were assigned Ivan Truong and Richard “Uncle Dickie” Foster, and their dastardly Medieval Portuguese. Personally I have bad memories of the latter army from back home in Christchurch in the early nineties (playing DBM 1.1

BC’08 Conclusion: Results & Aftermath

Battlecry 2008

It had been a hard weekend, with all the games being fairly challenging and the last 2 having been particularly hard fought battles. Our final result was 64 VPs, and 2nd Place – probably not bad for a team made

BC’08 Round 1: Early German Cimbri & Tigurini Gallic Allies 102BC

Battlecry 2008

On the first morning we drew Ivan Truong & Andrew Fergus for our initial game. The morning actually got off to a slow start with some fluffing around, and all 4 games being played in the first round probably lost
