Any tales of heroic performance at Cancon? Apparently Monday Knights had the best Cancon ever?

Mick, the Hail Caesar 28mm mini campaign display/participation game between the Romano-British and the Saxons and Scoti was a tremendous hoot. We had 12+ players every day for each of our 5 rounds, with a good mix of challenging scenarios. IMHO Hail Caesar leaves all other Ancients rules for dead when it comes to fast and fun games. It is also ideal for multi-player set-piece games. My noble hero, the Tribune Gluteus Maximus, rode to glory (well most of the time), even if I myself was translated mystically to the Isle of Avalon in the middle of the final battle (i.e. I had an early flight home... sigh).

cheers
Mark

There were 12 players in the DBR renaissance competition, although not all the players could play the full 6 rounds. The top 5 were:
Damian Pooley - Polish-Lithuanian Rzeczpospolita 95
Lyle Daymond - Free Cossack 73
John McQualter (NSW) - Portuguese Colonial with Hindus 58
Chris Pooley - ECW Royalist 58
Brian Sowman (NZ) - Scots Covenanter 50

James Armstrong, one of the local players couldn't make the last round. He would have been in contention for a place. Chris narrowly missed out on making it a League clean sweep of podium places, while Damian was undefeated for the second year in a row.

There were 3 Scots armies and 2 ECW Royalist, a smattering of late 17th century armies (Williamite Anglo-Dutch, Later Danish, Later Saxon), and a mass pike army (Sebastianic Portuguese) as well as those mentioned above.
