First, a big thanks to Simon and Steve for making this possible
Also a big thank to everbody there for a warm welcome, it was worth the 18.5 hours trip
Now I will have to try and convince some mates to give it a try, and the Loose Cannons are the perfect bait :)

Alex

ps If it would be possible to share results and compositions it would be wonderfull, was so immersed in my games that I barely had the time to look at the other tables

To get things started, the list I used
Basic idea was to have a hill on the base line (so I used 4 double box hills) with the camp/mob/fortification combo save
They generated 12VP/4 medals for only 14 points
Next have 1 little command for first deployment, together with 8 scouting and 4 commands I was guaranteed to choose my line of attack
Overall I was not so impressed with shooting, at least not mine, the opponents always seemed to do much better
What I also learned is that replaying a first high card is a very dangerous thing, in my last game I tried it 4 times and each time an ace popped up, aaargh

But certainly had a lot of fun, will try to promote the game over here

Hi Alex. I was dissapointed I had to pull out and have a new hip instead. However, if I would have been able to come, I would have brought a Hun army, not dissimilar to your Alan's. Mine had more light cavalry and fewer nobles. How did the Alan's perform? I would have liked to take them on!

Hi Barry,
results were 2 draws (with higher medals taken by me)  against Imperial Roman and Late Roman and a victory against 100YW French
I was quite pleased considering these were my first 3 games of TTS
