Nice to see some relatively tight themes (apart from round 4 <g>) and not the usual suspects.

Must try and get along :)

No problem if you're leving out to increase variety. Are allies allowed which are not in the list of armies?

I have my release papers signed for the 1st round. No idea what to take though.

Well done for organising this Alasdair - thank you.

Hope to make later rounds as well subject to SWMBO approval.

Add me for the first round at least, when do you require army lists and money

Never taken part in a competition before( only been wargaming 39 years) but tempted by the Southampton round just to get the lads out.
I can provide lots of laughs from my abysmal die rolling if that's any use?
