Blimey! I'm completely overwhelmed. Thanks a lot to everyone who has voted for our entries and thanks again to Eric for hosting the competition and to everyone who has thrown in for the prizes. Whoa - gonna have a party now!
Congratulations, Soaringraven. Now if we could find a nifty ruleset for running jousts...
Thank you for letting us play. Looking forward to next year
Vermin King, the idea for the Tournament set came from a long-running Harnmaster campaign that featured tourney knights and the tourney circuit in Kaldor. I still have my house rules for this floating around somewhere. I can scrounge these up if you're interested - they won't be much use unless you play Harnmaster. PM me if you want to have them.
If anyone can find an old first-edition set of the 1977 FGU Chivalry and Sorcery rules, there's a simple and brilliant set of jousting rules, which would do soaringraven's lovely entry justice.
Not sure I'd really class C&S in any of its editions as "simple", as I've long found it far too complex to be workable as an RPG, for all its attempted realism. However, don't let that put you off finding out if you like it for yourself!
I found a free PDF downloadable version here, which appears to be a genuine copy of 1st edition C&S, but redrafted to be actually readable. Although there seem to be some questions over its legality, it appears never to have been the subject of any actual legal proceedings, and remains available online in several places. If you're concerned though, it's worth reviewing the Red Book (C&S) Wikipedia page first.
There is also an electronic version of the most recent, 4th, edition available via the OBS sites, as a free download too. It comes in three volumes, although from a quick scan through, I'm not sure the jousting rules have survived as such, but I may simply have missed them. The combat rules are still VERY involved... In the 1st edition PDF rules though, look for "Tournament" on pages 70-74.
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)

wyvern: Nah, just rewatched the 1931 Universal "Dracula" movies (the Lugosi one and the Spanish version)

chiefasaur: Sweet tutorial! Now I know how to make paper minis ;P

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.
