    ADLG Version 4 (if youdon't have a copy of the new rules check with Olympian Games (Aus) or NorthStar (UK)).

    Latest Errata V4 forADLG - currently dated June 2021.




    25mm 200ap, open period,5 rounds over 2 days.

    Historically matchedopponents with armies supplied by organiser, as well as measuring sticks,ambush markers and dice.

    Table size and terrainsize as per 200ap games.

    Preset Terrain. Playersmay move (not remove) 1 piece of terrain. If the army contains a strategist youmay make a 2nd attempt to move the terrain piece if you fail (you may notattempt to move 2 pieces). Any terrain that is moved in a game becomes thestarting point for the next game i.e don't move the terrain back.

    Semi random draw for the1st 3 rounds (the umpire will not pair you with your regular opponent/s). Swisschess pairings will be used thereafter.

    When time is calledplayers stop moving immediately (they can move the unit group IF they havealready started moving it). Remaining pips for that command can only be spenton rallies. Conduct shooting & combat. Fill in score sheet indicating whicharmy was used by each player and how many elements were lost each /the armysize.

    Scoring will be thestandard French system.

    When you & youropponent arrive at a table you both look at the army lists. Choose an ambushtoken (marked A & B) & reveal them simultaneously. If you chosedifferent armies, that is the army you get. If you chose the same army, rolloff to see who gets to choose.

    Roll for the riverdifficulty if your table has one. Roll for initiative, winner choosing whetherto be attacker or defender. Roll to move terrain. Continue the game as per therules.

    Every attempt will bemade to ensure no one plays on the same table twice, however if you are drawnat the same table you automatically get the army you DIDN'T use.

    Once the draw is knownplayers are free to commence games before the official start time by mutualagreement.




    If a bye is requiredvolunteers will be sought in the 1st instant. If no one volunteers it will beawarded to the player on the least points, with the exception that overseas orinterstate players will not get the bye.




    The umpire may call uponother players to assist with umpiring at his discretion.

    Intentional slow play& unsportsmanlike behaviour will be viewed in the poorest possible way bythe umpire. Penalties may include forfeiture of points for that round.

    The umpire's decision isfinal.

    Play fair, play hard, becourteous & enjoy yourselves.

    The event is currently limited to about two dozen or so players at the moment, however this may be extended nearer the time (if everyone is cool with it, including our landlord)
    Standard ADLGv4 rules, 15mm, 200 points, 3 games,
    200point ADLG competition for Sunday September 12th. Theme The Rise of Byzantium to the 1st Crusade: Dark Ages - the West and the Middle East.
    Any army legal in the dateline 500AD to 1049AD, excluding those from any "Asia" or "Far East" section of the lists .
    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:[list=]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[/list] 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.
