    This year we're "sort-of" aligning the two periods to cover a similar
    timeframe, with the usual caveat of 25mm being slightly less restrictive
    in recognition of the fact the figures take longer to paint!

    The themes will therefore be as follows:

    15mm "[b]Other Empires are Available[/b]": Any army valid between the
    two Western (Holy) Roman Emperors 456 - 801 CE (from the death of
    Valentinian III to the crowning of Charlemagne).

    There are no geographical restrictions in this period, however only the
    minimum number of Cataphracts and/or Elephants can be taken in any list.
    Allied contingents that have a compulsory minima of Cataphracts and/or
    elephants are allowed to be chosen.

    25mm "[b]Even More Other Empires are Available[/b]": The same idea, and
    same troop type restrictions, but also extending the datelines a little
    wider to 395-962 CE (from the partition of the Roman Empire to the
    coronation of Otto I by the Pope to (again) restore the Holy Roman

    The tournament starts 900-ish. Each round will be 2 and 1/2 hours plus a bit, and we will break for buffet lunch when it's ready (so there will be a " put down your dice and step away from the measuring sticks " moment probably half way through the second game). We expect to finish at around 6ish. The ideal timings will be
    9:00 - 11:30 Round 1
    12:00 - 15:00 (allowing a 30 min lunch pause) Round 2.
    When the food arrives, which will be mid-way through the second game, the umpires will call "Down Dice" and everyone will halt their games exactly where they are for about half an hour so we can all have lunch.
    15:30-18:00 Round 3
    18:00ish Prizes and packing away
    If we find that all games in any round are concluded within the time limit we will try and crack on and start the subsequent rounds a bit earlier so we can all get away sooner.
    The club does have some terrain, but not enough for all of us, so either bring your own or take pot luck on whats left! If you have a playing mat of the correct dimensions that you can bring along it would really help too.
