Post  phil24 on October 6th 2013, 11:41

Gravesend Wargamers Club
War & Conquest Gaming Day
 
Sunday 1st December 2013
 
Venue: The Northfleet Veterans Club, The Hill, Northfleet, Kent, DA11 9EU.
 
There is parking outside the club and lunch is provided in the entry price of £10
 
Format of the Day:
 
Please arrive around 9am, the first game will start circa 9.30
 
Army size: 2000 points. Armies should be selected from the scarab website online army organisation lists. You may include up to 250 points of Legends of War within the 2000 points.
 
If you have not yet confirmed your attendance or army preference, please let Phil know as soon as possible.
 
We intend to fit players into groups with a theme, these are as follows-
 
The Greeks and enemies
Rome and their many  enemies
The Dark Ages
 
We intend to play 3 games, time permitting and so to help speed up play, the following deployments and objectives will be used. Attendees are urged to read the 'Battle Begins' section starting on page 153. You can download a set of cards with the Battle Objectives from the Scarab web site to speed up selection. Remember, 'No Plan Survives Contact with the Enemy' on page 159.
 
Game 1
Deployment Zone:            Autumn (page 155)
Deployment Method:      (5) One Side Deploys First (page 158)
Game Length:                    Variable Length (page 159)
 
Game 2
Deployment Zone:            Spring (page 156)
Deployment Method:      (6) Unit by Unit (page 158)
Game Length:                    Player Calls Time (page 159)
 
Game 3
Deployment Zone:            Summer (page 155)
Deployment Method:      (2) Deploy by Formation Type (page 158)
Game Length:                    Fixed Length (page 159)

You may use Veiled Hand (page 158) in the games, should you so wish. As for a number of players this will be their first games, it would be polite to let your opponent know you are doing so.
 
Terrain
Items of club terrain will be on the tables. Don't forget to select at least one Rally Point each. With that in mind, you will need to bring something to indicate your Rally Point, and if you wish to bring one or two items of terrain, that is absolutely fine.
 
Winning and Losing
There is no “street cred” in winning a game of toy soldiers. There will be a number of people who haven’t played much/at all, so please help them along and enjoy the day.
 
Finish time
About 5pm
 
Questions?
Please get in contact with us via email at philturner@talktalk.net or telephone, 07794908204.
If you cannot make the event or are delayed on the day, please let us know.

Phil.

Phil,

Alan just got in touch to let me know that he's been drafted in to work the weekend of the Gaming day, so won't be able to make it after all :-(

Assuming I get through Friday intact I'm looking forward to Sunday. Will bring something I'll-mannered with pointy sticks, tree-felling equipment and so forth. How many are we on the Dark Ages tables?

Nigel,

Your feasting was worthy of a prize. 

Unfortunately, the dry cleaning bill will be worth posting on the forum !!
