Do you have to stick with the same theatre selector from one game to the next? Presumably not, if you can move from early war to late war.


Hi Rob,

You can change at will as long as you have the same units in your list. The only thing that can change about the unit is it's veterancy.  If you choose an inexperienced list to begin with & that unit is only inexperienced in any list/theatre selector then you must stick with that. Please feel free to point out the issues with this if there are any :)

Hi John,

Yes. Have a look at the long post on the previous page.  The second sentence reads "Forces allowed are any army, from any book so feel free to be creative."

If you have any further questions please feel free to post here, on FB, PM me or grab me on a Monday night :)

Don't worry I have some cream for it.

Star Wars Armada. ECW Parliamentarian army.

Andy Mellor

Martin, now with a possible 20 players  :D, has the club got enough tables and scenery for this, by the end it could mean 30,000 points fielded? Seems just as many as a tournament/weekend game. Should we have 2 leagues or smaller multiplayer games, obviously the Germans will be League 1 !!!

Rob Farley

The club has enough tables and scenery for 10 Bolt Action tables. What it doesn't have is enough for anyone else to play anything at the same time. We have the collapsible tables as well though, but it will need some planning.

But I can pretty much guarantee that we won't have all 10 tables filled every time. There's always somebody who can't or won't show up. ::)
Current games (and armies) played: Gaslands, Direwolf Rampant, Frostgrave, Bolt Action & Operation Squad (Desert Rats, Communist Chinese, Russians, partisans, Americans, Finns, Italian Paras), In Her Majesty's Name, Judge Dredd Miniatures, Dreadball, Deadzone, Mobile Frame Zero, Uncharted Seas (Orcs), Necromunda (Pit Slaves, Escher), Wings of War (WWI and WWII), Mordheim, Alien vs Predator, Warpath

Current Projects: Brotherhood Without Banners, Jomsvikings, the Blaine Legion, Gaslands vehicles, WWII Danish

Daniel Phillips

We've plenty of roads, rivers & trees (particularly with all the winter trees). Between the normal stuff, the WWII era buildings we bought for Dead's Army and the Stalingrad scenery we should be ok for buildings as well so long as we don't want any fully urban tables. If we run short on anything it's probably going to be hedges, fields and maybe hills.

I can bring 6 extra 2'X4's if we're short and as Rob said we have the folding tables.

A lot will depend on what else people want to play on the campaign nights.

Are we using 6X4 tables for all the rounds or are we going to 4X4s for the smaller games?
Warning: This post may contain sarcasm.
Current games & armies played- Gaslands: Idris. Full Thrust: NAC & NSL. Bolt Action: Late war German. Judge Dredd: Justice Dept & Renegade Robots. Kings of War: Dwarfs & Kingdoms of men. Mordheim: Skaven & Marianburg. Uncharted Seas: Iron Dwarfs. Necromunda: Orlock, Redemptionists & Van Saar. Direwolf Rampant : House Mallister.

Rob Farley

4x4s would work for the 500 point games, but we need 6x4s for 750 points.

Hi All,

OK, 20 players!! I'm with Rob, it will be a miracle if we have 20 players each week. For the first week we can do 4x4 tables & that will give us an idea of where we are.

I will message everyone 2 weeks before & then release the schedule for the first round & message everyone again. If we have an odd number turn up I will sit out & catch up over the next three weeks.

I'm going to let everyone get some painting & building done then revisit the logistics in the first week of April. Thanks for all the support so far.

Martin did say we could make a case for a free unit at 500 pts.

Could I please bring my free 50pt light artillery piece because I''m playing Romanians and need all the help lol and its kind of the point of the army.
