I shall be there with my Late Romans, cataphracted to the max, but don't let that put you off.

Booked - thought it wise to get booked been as this event is at my club!

Probably take my south welsh army, but who knows I may surprise myself and take a more competitive army like anglo danes or Vikings, as I suspect there will be a lot of 2HW, Shieldwall, Superior troops in the front rank of many units...

Just checking how many of you are likely to be using barded, shock cavalry with Lance? I don't want to turn up to a gun fight with a butter knife. 😟

It could well be open order vikings for me. Either that or the Anglo Danes

How about the Early mediaval Scot's list would that be allowed in this competition?

Not sure if I would use it but have painted one up, whilst not the best army I have ever used it is fun.
