Does anyone still play? Any UK tournaments/comps?

We play it quite often. Matter of fact, while I was defeating some British Riflemen with my French, there were a couple of my friends playing DBR behind me. Venetian and Austrian I think?

The down side is that we never play tournaments, and we are located in Canada!

We have considered getting into Renaissance gaming, and are looking just at using the DBA-RRR rules extensions. We are otherwise a DBA/DBM group and do not see enough benefit in adopting the DBR rules. The DBA-RRR have interesting army lists as well.

I am just getting back into war gaming after a bit of a sabbatical/hiatus and picked up a copy of the DBR rules and ordered some Essex 15mm ECW Cavalry (Pistols).

I have fond memories of playing these when I was a teenager and fancied getting back into it in 15mm but seems to be dead in the UK!?

I find DBR to be a great set of rules which I play frequently. The tournament scene in the UK may not offer the rules as often as in the past. That may not be a problem depending on your aims.

You may find the DBR Mailing list a useful tool to track down opponents. You can find a link on my DBR blog which can be found here:

I am a huge fan of DBR… DBA 3.0 pulls mainly from DBR…
I do Italian Wars…

Have fun.

Thanks all. I really like DBR so I'm gonna go with it though opponent hunting might be a tad difficult! But I've gotta get stuff painted first!

@The Wargames Room – I had already come across your blog – a great resource so please keep posting and I wwill follow with interest.
