NZs First Impetus Competition
I don't play Impetus as a competition game but Kent and I am intending to run a First Crusades demo game at TAGCON which is held here in Timaru the first weekend in August. I started TAGCON several years ago as the second FoW competition in the South Island. In the past couple of years I haven't run FoW at TAGCON, preferring to run our campaign weekend, Day of Days, instead (mainly because no bbody else would organise the FoW comp at TAG and I got sick of doing it!). TAGCON now mainly s 40K, DBA and a few other games (Warmachine was run last year for example year). The DBA comp is held on one day and Kent and I usually run, or take part in some sort of demo/fun game on day 2. This year though we intend to do things a bit different. We'll run our demo game on Saturday and run a small Impetus Comp, probably the first in NZ, on the Sunday. The theme will be the armies and enemies of Imperial Rome (as a few players now have Warlord Games Roman forces) and I'll provide several armies for those who want to give it a go. Rather than a competition we will focus on having 3-4 300 pt battles and introducing other ancients players to the rules. It should be fun, but I guess I neeed to get bbuilding some suitable terrain pieces.
