Woolston Challenge 2019

The theme for the 2019 Woolston DBA Challenge is “Historical Matched Pairs”.

This format encourages some unusual armies to be used and potentially allows players to experience the challenges of using armies they may not be familiar with.

  •  Scale: 15mm
  • Date: Sunday 28th April 2019 (Tentative Date only –  TBC)

No registration fee applies to this event. The event is open to members of the Christchurch Wargames Club and others by invitation. Please register by emailing the  DBA organiser your interest.

You will need to confirm your army selections with list names and dates prior to the 21st April. This will allow a list of armies to be circulated prior.

Army Selection:

Each player supplies a historical matched pair, either from their own collection or by organising a loan army. The 12 stands of each army are defined at the start of the competition and are not changed.

At the start of each round the pair to be used in the current game is determined by umpire. The aim is for players to use their own pair in approximately half the games and their opponents in half the games. The player not providing the pair in the particular game then selects which army of the opponent’s pair he wishes to use.

We expect some loan armies to be available.
