If a player resigns from a game at any stage after the first set up dice have been rolled their opponents will be awarded maximum points, and they will be awarded 0 points.

Covid – 19: -
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation and for the comfort and safety of all Firestorm Games patrons and staff the following will be in place until further notice –
Everyone must comply with any Government and Firestorm Games requirements in respect to face covering and social distancing
You MUST purchase a relevant ticket, online, BEFORE entering the venue.
Tickets will be available ONLY as per the specified schedule.
This is so Firestorm Games can control numbers and have a record of all those who have attended on specific days for the purpose of contact tracing compliance.
The capacity of the venue has been restricted. If there is no ticket or the tickets are sold out it is because the space is full or is being used for a specific event.

As I dont have a specific 15mm 30 YW army, I am looking into what I can actually field. Hopefully ECW flags wont be too off putting as I was impressed with the choice I can probably use, and certainly with last years event.

I learnt a trick from Ray a few years ago (I am sure there are others too!) to never stick my flags on the pikes or standards so that they are inter-changeable and so for the most part the TYW/ECW figures can be interchangeable between Hapsburgs against the Ottomans, Swedes against all comers etc without too much fuss from my opponents (or maybe they were just being kind). For the most part we want to enjoy the gaming and not get too precious about the exactitude's of uniform details! They are basically all 4+2 packs of foot and 4 packs of horse! David (B)

All my ECW's are just that, and as such have attached flags. Must admit all my 28's have interchangeable flags. Not intending to change the 15's though. I certainly intend to come on down to S. Wales, as I have a position to improve on ( should'nt be too hard in comparison to this year).
