|After another successful Melee competition, this time held at 'the Games Cube' Level 2, 79-81 Phillip St Parramatta, the decision was made that we'd try to hold a FoG:R Competition in August.
The date is the 23rd & 24th of August .
I feel that this would be a fantastic opportunity for those people who are interested in FoG:R but unable to attend the FoG:R comp at MOAB.
The competition will be as follows:
15mm Field of Glory: Renaissance (FoG:R)
This is an 800a.p. open competition with any army from any list.
Players are permitted to submit two lists. The first, and primary list must comply with all minimums and maximums from the selected list. This list will be used unless the player has clearly announced that he is using his alternative list during the 'detached shot' section of the setup rules. It is suggested that players become familiar with the setup sequence as laid out in page 177&178 of the rules. The second list may be used only if the 'detached shot' option is being used and must comply with pages 182-183 of the rule book. A secondary list is only available if submitted to the organiser prior to the commencement of play on the first day.
All players must provide their own terrain.
Games will be 3 hours + a random number of minutes not less than 10 minutes and not more than 30 minutes. Once time is called players will conclude their current phase if it would affect the outcome of the game. There will be two games each day.
There is a slight rules modification that I will be employing:
"Uncontrolled or captured artillery are removed immediately after 'Move Routers and Pursuers' of the Joint Action Phase."
There has been substantial discussion on the slitherine site on a few wonky things that can happen in the rules as written regarding artillery. This (to my way of thinking) is the cleanest and easiest way of getting around all those wonkies.
Please let me know if you're interested.

Note, that this is the exact format (except for 3 days) for MOAB, so it a great opportunity to be able to test out your killer lists and refine it before the big event.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
