300 points is yesterday's size.

350 points multi commands is the future



just personal choice

tho i agree that it should be a one day event for 28mm and another day for 15mm.

will get many more players for saturday if its just that day

I plan on being there. Like Frazer, I would prefer 350 pts for the "big one", it worked well last year I thought...

We could go 350 points and 2+ commands if that is the majority view.
My main reason for proposing 300 points is that it usually gets more players to sign up and games are more decisive.
It's also the "classic" format that made the game so popular.

PS - Does anyone think my avatar looks like Dax? I miss him and am hoping to draw him out of retirement Smile

Lorenzo - I am holding 4 places for you. Does that sound about right?
It does seem fair as you are coming so far ... and you did write the game after all!!

Please confirm names and numbers as soon as you can as places are limited (unfortunately)

Ross - have the organisers put the limit on the 8 tables? Know usually it is first come first served when you pay direct to the organisers so if more pay early we could have more tables?

Still just checking on the date for me but always like to go.

Would also nominate the 350 format.

Cheers Jez

If we fill the 8 tables I can try to get more.
As things stand the first 16 confirmed get a slot with others going on the reserve list.
I will post the payment details from the organiser as soon as I have them. As you say, the organiser usually want to be paid directly by players in advance. It all seems a bit clumsy to me and I am going to see if I can streamline things this year.

I am also waiting to find out the impact of us only taking 1 day so watch this space

Ross thanks for organising can you put me and my brother - Jez and Matt down on the list. Now we are painting Teutonic Knights and medieval Russian - might be ready by October!

Can I check will we still be able to pay just for the one day. Pretty sure they will be ok with this.

Hi all

Going against the grain here. but I would like to nominate the 300pt option. Personal choice but I feel it provides a better game with less draws.

Cheers, Gareth

Ok count me in - I prefer 350pts - not sure how much difference the extra points have on army size as mine tend to go on commanders

ok, there are good chances that me and Luca Pellattiero come. I'm trying to convince other players and I think that 2-3 more is really possible. Very Happy

Hi All
To add a little flavour and keep things fresh this year we will be awarding bonus points for players making an extra effort-
T-shirt with army name/graphics = +20 points
Helmet or hat of the correct period = +30 points
Tunic or the period = +30 points
Full costume including footware = +50 points.

I really think it will add to the day and hope as many as possible get into the spirit of the event and make an effort.

I take it that as the organiser Ross this is "official"?

OOOOOOOOOOH NO!!!!!

I just realised that this is the same day that I will be at 'Twickenham' watching England face down the Australians in the RWC!

Isn't that just typical!

Hi Ross, et al, just noticed my name being raised in vain on this thread.
No chance of the retirement decision being reversed, but want to wish everyone the best for competitions this year.
Keep it clean and keep it fun, no gouging or blows below the waist and, to the jocks, you have a long history of world domination to maintain - up and at 'em lads Wink
