Results

Scores made little difference in final places

Alex Inglis - 4 wins - 383
Ian Sharp - 3 wins - 309
Martin Ossa Bordes - 3 wins - 302 (would have lost to Ian on countback)
Jason Williams -3 wins - 292 (would have lost to Ian on countback)
Andrew Wright - 2 wins - 221
Martin Morgan - 2 wins - 217
Brett Kvisle - 2 wins - 211 (Icarus award)
Gareth Holes - 2 wins - 211
Glen Noonan - 2 wins - 211
Andrew Oates - 2 wins - 210
Django Upton - 2 wins - 194 - played only Saturday
Peter Condliffe - 2 wins - 192 - play Sunday only
Richard Stubbs - 1 win - 143 - played only three games
James Morgan - 1 win - 125
Tyler Jefferson - 1 win - 123
Paul Garnham - 1 win - 109 - played Saturday only
Arnaud Ng - o wins - 56
Karsten Zeidler - 0 wins - 55
Michael George - o wins - 24 - played only Sunday

I played 2 games as effectively the bye (1 win) and Andrew Silk played the other bye game for a win.

Karsten won the best painted army.
James Morgan won the sportsman award (mainly for helping Andrew Wright beat him).

Cheers

The feeling everything's going well, then the lines hit.


I think what I like about ADLG is that there's no fleeing troops - that distracting part of the battle is removed thankfully.

Photos of my army from behind here:

Also, does anyone know what range is this guy is from?

Having only one ancients competition each year leaves plenty of time to plan for the next one. Has any discussion occurred regarding 2018? I'm wondering what folk out there would like to see. Could an open theme be on the cards or maybe a return to classical era? Or even biblical?

It might seem too soon but planning nine months for an event that I don't end up attending is one of my main wargaming past-times.

In a discussion with all the players at the end of this year's tournament, we tentatively settled on 2018's theme being the first two or three sections of the ADLG lists. So Ancient, Classical, and perhaps Roman as well.

(Note that 'Classical' includes Rome up to the end of the republic, so even if we restrict it to the first two rather than three books, there will still be some legions.)

With a good number of new players taking up ADLG recently, I definitely agree it's good to give everyone time to paint new armies ahead of next year's comp!

Thanks for that response, Tyler. That gives me a few things to think about.
The first two books present some interesting choices. Including the Roman era as well would probably make it less restrictive but might just coax a few extra attendees.
