The Gathering 2013 - An Impetus Competition

Sunday 11th August 2013 saw Dunfermline Wargames Club host their second 28mm Impetus competition. With twelve entries ranging from Middle Assyrians to Ottoman Turks there was going to be a lot of challenging and entertaining games. So, what happened throughout the day? Well there was laughter, head shaking, dice rolling, draws and routs. Basically everything you would expect from an Impetus competition. So on to the results, and there was a surprise in a Scottish competition, this being a new name in first place: 

1. Frazer Watson: Yuan Chinese 329 pts
2. Dax Robertson: Middle Assyrians 279 pts 
3. David Burns: Normans 264 pts 
4. Justin Marshall: Ottoman Turks 207 pts 
5. Russ Gibson: Sui Dynasty Chinese 162 pts 
6. Ross Manning: Patrician Romans 155 pts 
7. Dave Knight; Early Feudal English 154 pts 
8. Richard Coats: Almoravids 132 pts 
9. Martin Murray: Lancastrian WOTR 126 pts 
10. Mark Learmonth: Ancient Britons 92 pts 
11. Richard Bryan: Hundred Year War English 83 pts 
12. Marco Grillanda: Eastern Late Imperial Romans 79 pts 

Overall everybody had a great day and as organiser and player there are less close up pictures of the tables but a good few of the various games from all three rounds. The pictures below all come from round one.



The Yuan Chinese deploy against the Early Feudal English.



Ancient Britons above and their adversaries below the Middle Assyrians. This game resulted in the Ancient Britons being routed by the Assyrians.



The forces clash with the Yuan Chinese versus Feudal English above and Hundred Year War English versus the Lancastrian WOTR below. The Yuan Chinese routed the Early Feudal English and the Lancastrian's had the advantage in points in a hard fought draw with the Hundred Year War English.


Below East meets East with Sui Chinese versus Eastern Late Imperial Romans. The Sui Chinese again routing the Late Romans


As there were a few new players to Impetus at this years Gathering a few of the armies are still being painted. As its a relaxed atmosphere there was no problem with this on the day.



Pictures from Rounds Two and Three to follow shortly.

Cheers for now

I second Jonathan's comment. I'd even settle for just a local game!

Great looking armies there. Thanks for sharing.
