As discussed at the AGM, I am organising a large WW2 Bolt Action game which will be German v Soviets. This will involve a number of joined 6 x 6 tables dependant on numbers. Each participant will command a Battlegroup of either side of arround 1500 - 2000 pts roughly. Battlegroups will be dependant on peoples figures/models more than  exact pts.
I have plenty of 28mm Germans and soviets to probably do 4 battle groups + so its not a problem if anyone doesn’t have there own or need a few extra bits to make up a reasonable size BG. The scenario will be objective based with a mix of attack and defence tables for each side.
We can use the big game rules in the 2nd edition book with each player having there own coloured dice. If enough players are interested we can further break this down by using both square and round edged sets. This shouldn’t be a problem given the amount of dice. 3 or 4 dice will be drawn at a time to speed up play all be it pulled one at a time, so that where it matters, we can identify who goes first. We will need a lot of BA dice and I will prepare a process for ensuring everyone gets their dice sets back post game.
What I need to know reasonably quick is who is interested and what painted figures / models people have. Even better if you can give a rough points value of your BG. This will allow me to work out how big the table is, face off opponents and prepare a briefing for each overall CinC. Although each player will face off another, more or less, this will be a continuous table so nothing to stop players interfering with adjacent areas. It will mean that certain rules such as out flanking will not apply. I intend to play and will adjudicate on scenario/list queries and ask Rob to do the same in respect of rules. Apologies for the rambling nature of the above but time is f the essence and I wanted to get the ball rolling. Please feel free to add any ideas you have as nothing is written in stone. All communication through this event post please. If you have both sides or wish to borrow a BG please indicate your preference of side. When I know what people have I will work out the scenario.

Well, I'm in. I've got somewhere in the region of 2500ish points of Soviets, mostly infantry, and plenty of spare order dice.

Can everyone looking to play send me an army list of what you have. I will put lists together for those without armies. And draft the scenario. Thanks

Gary, I think I'm actually going to be unable to make it as I'm most likely going to be out of town that weekend. If anything changes, I'll let you know.

Hi Gary,

Count me in. I've got 2-3,000 points of German that I'm happy to bring along for anyone to use inc. around 100 figs (various standards of painting) a Jagdtiger, an 88mm, 38(T)'s. a Marder III, a Puma, a Panzer IV, trucks etc.

So the scenario will be Kursk July 1943 so army lists need to be mid war ish, so no King Tigers, T34/85 or JS II etc. Mainly T34(76), Pzr IV, some panthers and a few Tigers, all models/figures to be painted. Hope to get some good photos for the facebook page. Soviet 5th Guards Tank Army, the last reserves available are committed to try and stop the advance of the II SS Panzer Corps.
There will be 4 or 5 6x4 tables joined with the village of Prokhorovka on one flank. This table will be infantry based lists. Most of the other tables will be armoured platoons. When I have the final lists I can allocate the tables. Lists need to be maximised to meet points but minimise dice numbers. Each player will have different coloured dice and 4 will be pulled at once and issued in order. As soon as the dice is received the player needs to conduct his move having already decided what that will be. As the die is drawn a player can ask for extra if they are implementing the  officer rule. If the next die drawn conflicts with the previous then the die will be held by the player until the first die move is complete. It is hoped to keep things moving along so dice will be drawn asp as previous moves complete.
Players are not limited to the table they are on but can influence flanking tables if directed. One player on each side will be overall commander and have a senior officer in there list.

You will be on the Prokhorovka table with a infantry platoon(s). All sections to be max strength to minimise dice numbers. If you need an extra vehicle or two let me know. Need your list so that I can ensure it is equitable with your opponent.

Martin you will be facing Rob on the Prokhorovka table with an Infantry Platoon(s) list. The Marder, Panzer IV and 88 will be good support. If you need some other vehicles let me know. Let me have your list when done.
