an idea has been floated around about maybe a bolt action game or 2 on one of the nights with a few beers and snacks ;)

we are hoping to hire a large tent and if we can sort some tables out would anyone be up for a game or two ?

i have yet to finish off a squad yet so may inspire me :)

if we just playing small armies or group sure we could sort out a few loans for folks to try (says the guy who has never played lol)

anyway just an idea at this stage :)

There will be a new rule though. All participants must dress as the respective commander of their army.

Would it be a idea to have a few players on either side with said amount of points each? cause have been playing this off and on but me and the guys have been mainly doing tank wars battles (easy to get an engagement done in an evening) so that's most of what I have got. be fun if was able to do something where you have got different units commanded by different players. can have overall game goals for each side with extra victory points for individual unit missions etc.
just an idea but we could get a bigger game going on without everyone shelling out for large point forces.
have got both German and British tank units so happy to do either.

i like the idea of maybe 3 games

1) with armies provided small battle so new folks can try it

2) for those with armies again small and fast games maybe 2 v2 ?

3) maybe a tank wars one

but martin had a idea i need to check up on , and that is there safe zone has some pretty good covered areas :) which may be able to provide a ample gaming space :)

which means crap i may need to get around to painting some stuff and try and find my missing panzer :(

Would depend on what victory objective the battle is played to mate. If its a full on to the last man game then all depends on the luck of the roll but if it an objective based then you could have anything from take and hold 'x' and must be in control by turn 'x' so you can basically tailor a game to be as long or short as you want it to be. I have had games that lasted three turns before and although that doesn't sound long they can be quite full on and therefore lots of fun.
Will have a think about some of the objective games then we can pick what we want.

Went along to a mates group organised tournament the other day, just for a look around.
All armies were 1000pts based and it seemed like over the whole day each player got three games in, each game being max of six full turns. So don't know if that helps with a guideline of how long games should take.
Think 750 points each would be a good choice.
Plus what armies we bringing? I will have Russian and am planning generic heer in the Santa list
