Norðri, Switzerland: “I hope we’ll meet interesting novices at “Battle of the Nations”-2015 again”

Team France was also superb, it seemed to me that the guys had gathered an excellent composition for “Battle of the Nations”-2014. It […]

Makarian, Ukraine: “During the tournament the marshal has to forget about his /her “citizenship”
In principle, anyone can become an HBM marshal. However, a real HMB marshal must possess a number of important qualities, namely to be able to make decisions instantly, have resistance to stress, and, of course, know the rules of combat. The marshal has to pay special attention to prohibited actions, i.e. he/she should know all […]

Jacq, France: “You have to truly love your marshal duties, and then everything will be all right!”
I think, first of all, the marshal must have a certain experience of historical medieval battles, and not necessarily be a person who has been competing, but a person who knows what armor and weapons look like. Also, you need not to be afraid of being close to fighters during battles on the lists. And, […]
