Also we will be allowing forces from Banzi and Gung Ho. Please ensure you use the Pacific War costings.

Army lists to winterwar@mondayknights.org.au by the 21st of September. Bonus of 1 VP for army lists received on time.

Don't have an Early War army? Not a problem. Armies are available to borrow for those who want to try out Flames of War, or just don't have an Early War army available. Please email oates.andrew@gmail.com for more details.

Trophies
1st on VP
2nd on VP
3rd on VP
Best Painted

Notes:
Games that do not make 8 turns without a result will be considered a fair fight for determination of victory.

Warriors whose death grants a bonus VP will instead subtract one VP from the fielding player.

We invite all players to join us on the Saturday night for a meal and drink to discuss tales of Victory, tales of defeat and how it was all Chippy's fault.

Looking forward to this one, just have to make a decision; roll out the trusty Early war Polish motorised infantry again or try to finish my Russian tankovy in time for the tournament.

I'll probably be taking my Czech Panzerkompanie. We would very much prefer to shoot at Polish trucks than be shot at by Russian T-34s.

How accommodating.

I suspect I could win a lot of battles if I were allowed to call up the opposing company commander in advance and make requests.

Shaping up to be an interesting comp. Along with the usual suspects, there are rumours of some oddities. Frenchmen in a desert fort might make an appearance. Maybe some US Marines with early war equipment.

Will do, my Polish motorised infantry will be there. I was waiting for a new platoon that I ordered but looks like I will have go with what I have.

If you need to borrow miniatures that's not hard to arrange. There's at least one Polish army floating around that I don't think are being used.

Enjoyed the tournament even though my Polish motorised infantry only won 1 out of 3 games - I only played day 1. Next time I'm taking Russian Tankovy even if Tyler likes shooting at Polish trucks!
