After suggesting that, as the largest FOG:N comp in the World, ours could be considered the World Championships, Keef sent a link to some small, provincial gathering in Europe (hah, like anyone takes any notice of what happens 'over there'!!) which is occurring in August.
As I have already said, possession is nine-tenths of the law, and our tournament is in July... Cool

Keef then had the temerity to try, in some puerile way, to cast aspersions on the valour and dignity of Saxon arms Shocked .....this from a Russian whose only strategic plan in 1812 (and pretty much ever since) has been "RUN AWAY!!" Laughing

I would like to point out to Marshal Marshallovsky that Saxony was a Kingdom in 1809, and while this one true Fatherland may have had some assistance from the French, was nobody's vassal.
A king is a king is a king.... Wink

Hi Richard
I'm just confirming I will be attending.
Arnaud Ng will also be playing, so if not already done so please add two more names to the list.
I'll be using the Dutch Belgian Reserve Corps, 1815!
Yes, you can all stop laughing,.. Rolling Eyes
I know it's a crap list, but I also hope not many others will have it and it will be a nice change to all the inevitable French, Prussian, Russian and Austrian armies.
Also, it's a really cool looking army and the AB Miniatures Netherlands figures are too beautiful not to trot out after painting them. Laughing
Can you confirm when you require the lists?
800 and 650 points right?
Many thanks for putting this on. It's so rare these days to see a Naps tournament being run except for those god awful WRG 1695-1845 comps.
Wink
Cheers
Scott Driscoll Cool

How about "Pas de Charge 2014"! as a tournament name?
A musical march that would have been heard on almost every napoleonic battlefield.

Just a thought? Wink

Thanks Scott. The more the merrier.

Looking forward to seeing the DB's from AB on the TB. Lists are due 18 June. Yes, 800 & 650 point lists.

Rather boringly, in the absence of consensus on a name, we're down to Victorian Napoleonic Championships, but maybe I should just make an executive decision and go with the one I like, "Grognards".

I wonder how Aussies (or South Africans for that matter!) would pronounce "Pas de Charge"?

Same way we pronounce "Paris" - any way we want

I recall being told at school that Ypres was pronounced wipers by the Australian troops in the first world war.

Just one question regarding rule interpretations for the tournament.
There has been an ongoing thread on the FOG forum about intercept charges and how they relate or affect counter-charges.

My understanding was that a successful intercept would prevent contact with the original target, and that the original target would therefore not need to perform any compulsory tests or moves - Apparently it is not that simple!! Compulsory tests are avoided, compulsory moves are not.

A successful intercept only needs to contact the enemy, and the original target can still counter-charge - in fact it is possible to argue that they would have to counter-charge, as this is a compulsory move.

And the thread has not even considered how this will affect infantry intercepts.

I can see this creating a LOT of confusion, something to be avoided in the midst of a competition. I think it would be worthwhile to make a ruling on this beforehand.
I think the post by BrettP is very pertinent, and I would recommend that we all have a look at this whole thread.

http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=188&t=47296&start=20

Until a firm ruling on this is decided, IMHO the easiest thing to do is rule that:
1/ If an intercept does not prevent contact with the original target of an assault, it fails and does not happen.
2/ A successful intercept cancels all compulsory moves and tests the original target would otherwise be required to make.

What do you all think? Smile
