Ha! It's quite exciting to see the votes climb up and great to revisit these works of art and literature in the cold winter nights.

I have become a little concerned what to do in the case of a draw. Do an Alan Sugar and declare two winners? or some kind of sudden death penalty shoot out. Ideally I suppose the armies of the two winning entries would fight each other to determine the victor.

Any sensible (or otherwise) suggestions?

Re: The Greatest Battle Report of 2017: Voting

In the case of a tie, as the adjudicator of the competition, do the following:

1. Take the tied entry that was nominated first. Treat this one as having the higher Initiative.

2. Take the final number of votes for each tied contestant and treat these as the contestants' Weapon Skill.

3. Roll 1D6 for the contestant with the highest Initiative. If the die rolls the required 'To Hit' score, this contestant has won the competition.

4. If the die roll for the contestant with the highest Initiative does not meet the 'To Hit' requirement, roll for the contestant with the next highest Initiative. If they succeed, they have won the competition.

As this is a friendly competition, no 'To Wound' rolls are required for victory.

Re: The Greatest Battle Report of 2017: Voting

Very well done to all the nominees, so many great entries, dramatically photographed and presented with exciting scenarios, detailed accounts of derring do and mayhem, each of them very much deserving recognition on their own merits. Thanks to everyone who took part, not only in writing up their battle reports, nominating them but also voting - no easy feat with so many great entries to choose from. But in the end, there could be only one.

So it is with great pleasure I announce Nicos Pitch Invasionas the Greatest Battle Report of 2017. A very well deserved win, with a unique and interesting premise, clearly documented with great scenery, costumes, gamers having fun and a dramatic battle to the end. Congratulations Nico!

I found this too late to vote; do any of those feature The Empire, or the Orcs and Goblins? Also, for this rusty wargamer, what constitutes "OldHammer"; 5th Ed. and older? Or is 6th Ed. included as well?

Here's a can of worms - but to be honest in my opinion - it's more a case of the spirit the games played in, than the game itself so a straight stand-up fight between two equal forces across a table, really isn't going to cut it; its really got to have a narrative, hopefully with multiple tasks for the players to complete during the course of the game, and if multiple players are taking part - as much back stabbing and rescuing of damsels etc as possible. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hope this helps
