The Befuddled On Tour – Ladywood 2009

Yesterday, I and my regular DBMM opponent buried our differences and travelled to Birmingham for the third Ladywood Invitational.

I’d like to thank Gordon Harrow for organising such an enjoyable event. The venue, refreshments, lunch and handy bar really were first class.

We took an 500 pt Early Russian army and lost both games but I will write up reports later.  In the meantime here’s some photos from the day

Our second opponents, Tim Child & Stuart Whigham (Red Oktober) looking relaxed as they prepared to crush the Russians with their Nikephorian Byzantine army.



Fellow MAWS members Geoff Pearson and Brian Pierpoint, with their Later Visigoth army, cast a wary eye on their first opponents; Tim Child & Stuart Whigham’s Nikephorian Byzantines.

  1. I look forward to hearing the after battle reports. Did anybody feel the need to refer to guides and aids to settle difficult problems?

  2. Hi James

    I'll need some time to distil the best out of the two games to make an entertaining report.

    As to the guides; well I certainly used mine and saw one or two others had their favourites to hand. However, I didn't really get much time to look around during games - too busy rolling ones.
