Looks like we'll have to have themes next year.

Hi Tim

if you are good at keeping secrets I can tell you they'll be a couple of Late Imperial Austrians, just to get people looking in the list books, not sure its a tournament army but it'll be fun to play

Hi having played in both the 800 point and the 900 point, (both of which I enjoyed) I think the 800 point version gives a wider range of armies a good opportunity of success, if it was 900 point I think you would see more Swedes and Tercios and less variation in armies selected and therefore less in...

Basing

Hi

just a quick question am basing up some more figures for fog, I would like to base the majority of infantry on double bases (just cause I can make them look nicer)with a few singles for when I have to remove casualties, is that a problem or am i better sticking to single bases

Cheers
