Armies should comply with the DBA v3 lists and be 15mm figures on 40mm basing. Army composition will be chosen before the first round, including whether to dismount, and then remain the same throughout the tournament.
Playing area. 24 inch boards will be provided and participants should bring along appropriate terrain in the event of them being the defender.
Number of games - five games of up to an hour are proposed to allow time for games to run to a result as much as possible and provide opportunities for socialising and visiting the show.

1130 – game 2
1330 - game 3
1430 - game 4
