Calling all OGRE gamers for knightly combat!

Ok, I've been chatting with Whiskey Priest, and having had an original plan to do something knightly up in Nottingham but realising that we couldn't make it after all, we've decided it would be better to do it as something in East Anglia to get OGRE together again. Our theme is "Chivalry!" and we want to have a game based on the "Combat of the Thirty": everybody bringing a warband of knights on foot to indulge in staged combat.

I've just bought a blister of the old citadel knights from Foundry and I'm keen to get them painted. We're also looking to try out the Chivalry rules from WD130 and the Full Tilt rules from WD215.

Whiskey Priest and I have identified the weekend of the 21-22 as a good time for us. How about you guys? What say you?

Like the idea, but that weekend is busy for me.

Sounds good to me! If I can make the date work, I'll be there. Which day and which part of it were you envisaging?

Personally I'm flexible on that (although Saturday is always a little easier than Sunday), so I'm happy to follow the lead of people who have more restrictive timetables.

Morning Chaps,

I'm certainly interested but not sure of my availability at the preset time.

We are undergoing home improvements so lots of stuff is packed away at the moment too.

Normal chaos will be resumed at some point and the smaller paintbrushes will come back out :D
Regards
Christopher

Certainly possible, were you imagining each player brings thirty knights or just some to add to one side or another. I'm assuming on foot unless one side wants to act like the disgraceful French and jump on a horse. Are we worrying to much about time periods and getting armour right?

Are we assuming this is Bretonnia or Brittany?

Re: Calling all OGRE gamers for knightly combat!

Looking at points I reckon 150 points would get 15 guys in heavy armour with either a sword and shield or a double handed weapon - or- two lvl 5 heroes and ten guys or a lvl 15 a lvl 5 and 3 guys etc etc. does sound around about the right level?

And just knights yes? No commoners with long bows?
