William de Warenne was given about 20 manors in Norfolk by Duke William so can I be based in East Anglia on the map please.
Grahame

In early 1067 you might find it difficult to convince the locals of that.

Attached is a first draft of the Campaign Rules, please take a look, and let me know if there are any obvious problems, or anything you think can be improved.

Something I've been thinking about for a show game-

"The Battle of Eakring"

In WWII there were deposits of high quality oil under Eakring, Caunton and Kelham Hills. In 1943 there was an oil field of around 100 wells that produced around 3.5 million barrels of oil throughout the war. Most were crewed by Americans brought in from the Oklahoma oil fields. This was all kept secret from the Germans.

But what if the secret had been leaked?

Something like the Eakring home guard and armed American oil drillers trying to hold off a Fallschirmjäger raiding force until a local armoured unit arrives?

We could use the Dead's Army buildings for Eakring, we have home guard figures already and I'm sure a few people have Fallschirmjäger. Just need to build an oil derrick or 2.

It would be ideal to do at one of the Newark shows as Eakring is very close to Newark and the American drilling crews were housed at Kelham Hall (where Hammerhead used to be).

They sounded quite keen for us to put on a game.

I'd suggest something that uses models closer to the type of thing the model clubs favor, something like 28mm tanks over some good terrain.

I'll be there for at least one day maybe both.

First thoughts are:

1) The "French Invasion of England by Balloon". I know we've done it there before but it went down very well and is very noticeable.

2) The "100 years War - Siege game" we put on at The Leeds Armoury. It's easy to pick up even for a non-gamer, it looks good (it's in 54mm) and is a good demonstration that wargaming does not need to cost a fortune - IIRC both armies, the terrain and everything else cost less than £40?

3) "Battles of Lake Tanganyika". It's 3 games in one with some great stories, it looks good and the rules are simple enough for non-gamers to pick up easily.
