24th and 25th February 2024

You are invited to come and join in our 28th annual competition weekend and play one of the following

DBMM Doubles

500 points. 1071—1525AD.

Any army legal during these dates may be chosen.

All armies must have 4 commands. 1 Ally General can be nominated in the submitted list as auto-reliable. He (and his command) is treated in all ways as an Ally General (including AP) but is reliable from the outset of the game. Also if flank marching or a delayed arrival his command will not count as lost and will continue to dice for arrival even from the 8th bound.

FOG Renaissance Doubles

900 points. Any army 1618—1660AD.

Any army legal during these dates may be chosen.

Amended rules and points as per the Slitherine forum.

Army lists may exceed 900 points by the cost of the cheapest base used.

Any heavy artillery used must be the first battlegroup(s) deployed, followed immediately by any medium artillery used.

Dragoons making any move including an evade starting or ending within 6MU of the enemy, may make a full dragoon mounted move if they pass a CMT.

If they make a move which would be longer than that allowed to dragoons on foot they may shoot but as Carbines (range and effect) not Muskets as they are shooting from horseback, or have dismounted so quickly that they cannot shoot properly as a unit.

Cavalry that pass a CMT can either, move 2MU and turn 180, or turn 180 and move 2MU, or turn 180 move 2MU and turnback 180.

Squarebashing Day 2018

Squarebashing 2018 is to be held on Saturday 23rd June 2018, at Battlefieldhobbies in Daventry.

It will be a team event (entries permitting). The armies are divided into 2 Pools. In each team – one player plays allies, the other central powers. I have added forces from the Russian Civil War that are dated 1918+. I have added 2 neutral armies that can be fielded on the either side. Game pairings will ‘historical’ were possible, and avoid ‘same club’ where possible

The lists and statuses are

There will be 2 games, Team against Team (Allies vs Central Powers). For each game the sum of each team score will be added to the team total. The army points are 620pts (standard game)

To encourage using under valued armies the sum total of army rating will be deducted from final score.

The terrain will be pre set , other than that, its RAW. You have the option to use the ‘Rays Stick’ method for countdown to battle. There will be no trench, canal or fort games. All painted figures please, we want it to look nice!

Any questions can be raised to me at or via the RFCM forum
