Autumn 2017

Richard Pulley, winner of the Summer DBA, chose the theme for the third DBA Event of 2017, which was held on 30th September 2017.

The Theme was Al Andalus and the Magrib in the 10th Century (Armies & enemies of Islamic Spain and North-West Africa, 901-1000 AD). This was a repeat of 2010’s Autumn DBA theme, but used the current Version 3 rules and army lists.

The list of armies is as follows:

III/21b Italian Lombard
III/29 Thematic Byzantine
III/33 Early Muslim North Africa & Sicily
III/34b Andalusian
III/35a,b Feudal Spanish
III/40b Norse Viking
III/49 Tulunid or Iqshidid Egyptian
III/52 West Frankish (not Norman, so Ag:2 only)
III/53 East Frankish
III/66 Fatamid Egyptian
III/70 Tuareg

    Excellent theme.Any allies specifically ‘disallowed’, or is it any ally within the timeframe (as against geographical zone)?

    • Good point. I think if we recommend that allies should be from the Mediterranean (i.e., no Scots, Irish or English with the Vikings and no Poles with the Franks), that would do. But I’m not sure if we should absolutely prohibit them, just frown upon the practice.

      • On second thoughts. I think it will be easier if we specify that allied contingents must be from the same list of allowed armies. This keeps out the anachronisms without excessively limiting the probables.
