Roll Call 2019 27/8 April

Post by madaxeman » Mon Sep 24, 2018 8:02 pm

At Roll Call this year there will be one FoG:Renaissance period, which following discussion elsewhere on the forum will be in 15mm

The theme is being worked on by the mystical elves of the BHGS, and will be published soon. You've probably got an army that fits it anyway, so no need to worry.

Yt will be 800 points, 6x4 table, Games to be played using the latest Slitherine amendments.

Games will be 3 hours 20 mins plus a 1-10 min(s) variable

Saturday 0900-1230, 1330-1700
Sunday 0900-1230, 1330-1700

List Deadline: 14th April 2019

Might this not clash with the Oxford ECW round? The latter is usually the last Sunday in April.

Hopefully Oxford will have an opportunity to schedule the ECW round on a different date.

Between avoiding Easter, staying in the school holidays (as we run in a school) and keeping away from Salute! the number of viable weekend in April for Roll Call is somewhat limited - it was basically this one or nothing.

I quite understand, just wanted to make sure everyone was aware whilst it was still possible to do something about it.

Noting that FoGR is listed as 15mm for Roll Call next year, Dene & I at Burton who are both building up more 25mm armies are particularly disappointed about this.

I have contacted the 'usual suspects' and have ascertained that Ben, Bob, Lynette, Simon LRM, and this Keith are entering and would happily play 15mm or 25mm, especially if the later was open. So that gives 7 who would play 25mm to my knowledge. At a recent Burton club night Dene & I talked to Steve Holt who would also go "Big Toys" if the organisers really needed 8 players.

So, given the dilution of players to MeG & possibly FK&P, I suggest that they will not get more entries to FoGR simply by switching to 15mm.

For some years Roll Call has held up the 'Big Toys' banner. So I am appealing to Tim Porter & the organisers to not let it drop and to change FoGR back to 25mm and to keep the theme open.

Any thoughts in support or objections please.

Ray

After in depth secret negotiations at the highest levels, Campaign will be running a 25mm open event.

This means that you can get to do both 25mm and 15mm FoGR wargaming in the beautiful Greater Milton Keynes area, all within the space of a few weeks !
