DBMM One-dayer


MKWS will be organising DBMM one day team event on Saturday 13th January 2024. The format will be similar to that fomulated by Ray Briggs for his successful Guildford tournament and used for last year’s MKWS One- dayer. Although a team event, individual entries are welcome; the organisers will group individuals to either complete or form new teams. Teams do not have to represent clubs.

Please note the teams listed below are still subject to change, as we are still accepting entries, and therefore individual players may be relocated to avoid army list clashes or form new teams.

The figure scale will be 15mm.

Individuals wishing to enter will either be grouped into teams, or used to complete full teams at the organiser’s discretion.

In the event of an odd number of players, the player with the bye will score 17 points for that game.

Only armies from DBMM Book 1 may be used.
Only Allies may be taken from other books.

An army can only be used once per team.

There will be two rounds on the day, with both rounds being drawn on the morning of the event, when attendance levels have been confirmed. Obviously team members will not play one another, whilst every effort will be made to avoid club mates playing each other.

If depolyment ends between dusk and dawn the battle may not begin until sunrise.
