2018 will be 1000 years since the battles of Cannae and Dyrrachium, so the 2018 Britcon DBA theme will be Byzantines, Bulgars and Lombards - and their enemies in 1018.
This means the following eclectic mix of armies can be played at the tournament:
• III/14c Early Bulgar
• III/21b Lombard
• III/26a Early Serbian
• III/26b Croatian
• III/33a Early Muslim North Africa and Sicily
• III/47 Pecheneg
• III/48 Rus
• III/51 Bagradid Armenian
• III/52 West Frankish
• III/53 East Frankish
• III/54a Dynastic Bedouin
• III/66 Fatimid Egyptian
• III/65 Nikephorian Byzantine
• III/68a Early Hungarian
• III/71a Georgian
As well as prizes for those ranked highest, there will also be a prize for the person who does best with a more underpowered army. This will be awarded on the basis of dividing their points earned by the combined combat factors of the elements in their army.
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. Competitors should bring appropriate terrain in the event of them being defenders. Allies can be selected as long as they were active in 1018.
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.

1000 – Arrivals and introductions
1030 – game 1
1130 – game 2
1330 - game 3
1430 - game 4
