We are planning 3 events for DBA 3.0 in 28mm for HMGS Little Wars, actual times TBD:

Battle of the Sabis River, Friday afternoon April 28:
57 BC – Rome is at war with the Belgic tribes in Northern Gaul. Julius Caesar's army has begun encamping near the Sabis River, when the massed tribes of the Nervii come screaming out of the woods to attack the unsuspecting Romans. This is a "Giant DBA" scenario. 8 players will command at least 12-15 elements of troops. Inexperienced players are welcome.

Battle of Chalons, Saturday morning April 29:
451 AD- Attila the Hun's army, including vassal Ostrogoths & Gepids, are looting & pillaging Roman Gaul. A coalition army under the Roman General Flavius Aetius, including Visigoth & Alan allies, meet Attila to do battle on the Catalaunian Fields near modern day Chalons. This is a "Big Battle DBA" scenario. 6 players will command at least 12-15 elements of troops. Inexperienced players are welcome.

Battle of Nedao, Saturday afternoon April 29:
454 AD – Attila is dead. His sons struggled for supremecy, with Ellac emerging as king. However, Attila's former vassals have used the opportunity of his death to rebel. The rebel's combined army of the Gepids, Ostrogoths, & Rugians, under Ardaric's leadership, meet the Ellac's Hun army near the Nedao River in the Balkans. This is a "Big Battle DBA" scenario. 6 players will command at least 12-15 elements of troops. Inexperienced players are welcome.

Looks to be a great lineup. In 28mm as well!

I wish I could attend.

I missed Siege due to a corporate buyout.

I will miss Nashcon due to a graduation.

No conventions this year for me it seems.

We decided that this year for Little Wars to have a few "Giant/Big Battle" events featuring 28mm.

Adepticon is also having a Trojan War BBDBA event run by Bob Beattie in 28mm, along with open and chariot tournaments in 15mm run by Bill Hupp.

Next year we are thinking of doing a 28mm (we would provide the armies) one day campaign (3+ rounds) on the rise of Pontus. Multiple armies including Rome (2), Pontus, Numidia, Spain, Gaul, Germany, Armenia, Ptolemy, etc.
