On Saturday 23rd of November 2019, the Phoenix Gaming Club of Rushden will be holding their 9th 28mm WW2 Bolt Action tournament: Operation Weserubung! 

QuotePhoenix events are very popular so please book early to guarentee a place.

This event takes place at our usual venue: Rushden Scout HQ, (behind Orbit Tyres) off Skinners Hill, Rushden, Northamptonshire, NN10 9YE 

There are 24 places in the event, 12 for Axis players, and 12 for Allied players but happy to take reserves. 

Entry into the event is £15 payable by cheque, to PHOENIX GAMING CLUB, cash on a club night to Paul Tysoe, Carl King or Paul Wilkinson or alternatively by Paypal to paul_wilky@hotmail.com

Places will be allocated on a first come first served bases, but we will happily take reserve places in case of last minute drop outs.

Please contact us here on the club's FB page, PM Paul Tysoe, Carl King or Paul Wilkinson or contact us on the Phoenix facebook page or via messanger. 

The Tournament will consist of 3 1,000 point games. Missions will be revealed shortly (but will no doubt be substantially the same as last year)  An event pack will be publish very soon.

Armies are to be chosen from the "Armies of" books, but not Generic Lists or theatre selectors lists as these require careful vetting. (We have taken on board Warlord Games advice here, which is built on feedback from numerous previous events held by other clubs as well as our own events.)

There will be trophies / medals for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places (for both Axis and Allied) as well as a best painted army prize for each side.

The lowest scoring player from each faction will win a small consolation prize and there may be other prizes on the day depending on sponsorship etc
