UK Games Expo - 31st May - Looking for 1 extra player

There have been a couple of changes of play with the FoG and FoW events at theis year's Expo. Due to massive space pressure on the venue both events are now being held on the Sunday not one on each day as before. Field of Glory will be a mixed FoG:R and FoG:AM event, I know it is a bit strange but t...

Re: UK Games Expo 30th May - question

OK, the organisers have OKd us for a combined FoG tournament. As long as one player is happy to float from Ancients to Renaissance then things will be fine. It is not going to make the draw perfect Swiss but even with only 16 players a 3 round comp is not really enough to get Swiss to work fully any...

Re: UK Games Expo 30th May - question

The problem I have is that the organisers of the event only want reasonable sized tournaments and I am not convinced I would get 16 players for FoG:AM :( I am wondering if it might be possible to do a combined competition with AM players playing other AM players and R players playing other R players...

Re: UK Games Expo 30th May - question

The FoG tournament would be on the Saturday. Flames of War gets the Sunday. This year the venue is really rammed for space but next year there will be a big expansion as the trade part of the show will move into one of the halls at the NEC :O I want to keep some historical miniatures presence at the...

UK Games Expo 30th May - question

Hi all, The Games Expo people are talking to me about the FoG tournament(s) for 2015 at their event. Space is very much at a premium this year and also there is a desire on the part of the organisers for tournaments to be at least 16 players strong. As a result they are suggesting that there is a si...

Re: Stockport Pick'n'Mix 2014 - December 13th/14th

At the moment I am still waiting to get an idea of how many people are up for FoG:R. I doubt it will be more than one day I am afraid :( You clash with the Southern league FoGR which will not help numbers. It has certainly not helped FoG:R numbers FoG:AM numbers are pretty slim as well. At the mome...

Re: Stockport Pick'n'Mix 2014 - December 13th/14th

If you are intending playing please can you let me know. I am trying to get an idea of what numbers will be like in each period.

Several people have spoken to me but very few have actually contacted me by mail.

Stockport Pick'n'Mix 2014 - December 13th/14th

It is getting close to Christmas so it must be time to publicise the Pick'n'Mix again. Once again this event will feature the only edible prizes on the tournament circuit as well as other prize support. I hope to get the Element Games store to open up for at least one day of the event. IMO they miss...

Re: UK Games Expo - Birmingham May 31st

There are two spaces left for this comp now after the Expo added some last week, the booking system closes on Friday so if you want to enter there is still time.

Lists need to go to me hammy@the-riverbank.net ideally by this weekend

UK Games Expo - Birmingham May 31st

The Games Expo is heading back to its new home at the NEC Hilton. The FoG tournament will be in the same room that it was in last year but the event as a whole is bigger and better than ever before. FoG Renaissance will be an open 650 point three game competition on 5' by 3' tables with 2 1/2 hour g...

Re: Campaign Milton Keynes 2014

The event is definitely going ahead on May 10th/11th but just the tournament side of it.

It will be at the iCon Centre in Daventry because of the lack of availability of the MK venue.

Hopefully at some point someone in MKWS will update their website.

Re: UK Games Expo - Birmingham May 31st

The ticketing system for the Expo goes live tomorrow evening.

Rather confusingly it has been showing all events as sold out up till this point.
