Post by viking123 » Mon Jul 26, 2021 1:54 pm

The Devizes & District Wargames Group's website states that their much-loved show will be back hopefully over the weekend of 16th-17th July 2022.

I have been in touch with Phil Mackie to say that I am happy to organise and run a FOG R competition at Attack! 2022. Please put the dates in your calendar so that we have a good turnout.

Below is the draft theme and would welcome comments on the proposal: -

David,

I have updated the dates but these may still be changed depending on circumstances.

I had originally drafted this two years ago and missed the dates.

I hope the theme will be of interest as it allows players to dig out the Polish winged Hussars which rarely get on the table.

Thanks for the amendment of the 2 deadline dates! I am looking forward to potentially getting my Poles out for this - with it being an 820 point event, there is a better chance of a balanced force once you've paid for the compulsory Hussars (@ c.20 points a base) that makes them a bit expensive in a 650 point army!
