Hosted by Conquest 2014, April 20-21, 2014

Organised By Django Upton

Sponsored by:
the League of Ancients www.leagueofancients.org.au (Terrain)

Flames of War is an easy, fun and popular set of miniatures rules. Players control a company of World War Two troops in battle using 15mm scale miniatures.

Conquest 2014 is a general games convention held in Melbourne over the Easter weekend (April 18-21, 2014). This Flames of War tournament is one of many events at the convention.

The rules used will be Flames of War Third Edition including any updates and errata listed at www.flamesofwar.com

Play will consist of three rounds of up to 2 1/2 hours.

Players will use fully painted 15mm scale Mid War armies of up to 1485 points from any FOW intelligence briefing from the North Africa or Eastern Front books or official PDF from the Flames of War website.

Terrain will be pre-set and defined. Missions played will be randomly drawn from the V3 Rulebook.

The draw will be by Swiss chess by accumulated Victory Point score with the best attempt made to match historical opponents. If necessary an extra player will play byes to make the numbers even.

Trophies and prizes will be awarded to the top three placed players by VP. Countback for places shall be by the results of their games if they have played each other, otherwise by sum of opponent’s scores.

A Trophy and prize will be awarded to the Best Army as voted by the players.

Highest VP for the whole tournament will be the official Australian Mid War Flames of War Champion for 2014.

Army lists are to be emailed to the organiser at django@alphalink.com.au before Monday April 14, 2014 and you must also register with Conquest 2014.

Entry fee is 3 Conquest tickets and $5 payable to the organiser for prize support. Prepay for your tickets by bank transfer to Conquest and save money.

It's the current standard for official BF tournaments and I've been running it as 1750 points for ages so time for a change. Nothing to do with game balance etc.

Django doesn't want me to use my 8 Panthers Doom.

Little does he know that this year the 7 Pamthers of Doom + Air Support of Doom will ride!

Only 5 entrants so far. Looks like FOW has jumped the shark. If we go the full 5 rounds it will be a round robin as it stands. If I don't get at least 9 players I'll consider dropping it back to one day.

Due to low player numbers I have dropped FOW back to the Sunday only. Anyone wanting to play only a single day can do so.

Note that there are plenty of other games on during Conquest including Bolt Action, Epic, X-Wing, Warmachine and Wings Of Glory.
