Yes, 25mm will be open, I believe that it will be the same as this year (700 points, 40mm MUs for Movement, Command Distances and Shooting, 1 inch MUs for Terrain, Deployment and Threatened Flank Sectors).

Ohh... A few of 'legal' lists are really difficult to do due to the cavalry restrictions (Early Henrician and Scottish to name two), and the cut off date removed some interesting lists too (Danish and Elizabethan for instance).
Wot no Aztecs? ;)

Who said it was meant to be easy? Admittedly, the Henricians can only get enough mounted by using everything in the list. The Scots have more options. Some of the other armies might require an ally.

As for the Aztecs, unless you can convince the the authors of the existence of the legendary Llama Lancieros or Alpaca Arquebusiers, you're stuck with an all pedestrian army. Personally I'd love to do a South American theme, but I just don't think enough people have the armies. It's something that needs to be in a tournament like Campaign or Derby where only one third of the players need to provide something so obscure.

I will be waiting until after the weekend to see if I am making 1 entry or 2. If Isabel has a good time at Warfare then it will be two entries. Fingers crossed!

Roll Call is now almost 50% sold out, with FoGR 15mm currently the sixth most popular period (led by Bolt Action and our newest theme, Blucher), and FoGR 25mm being neck and nevk with DBMM for the largest 25mm period.

The rate of bookings and the venue capacity means that the maximum number of players in any given period will probably end up being limited to somewhere between 12-18, with early-booking periods being larger than later booking ones, so please sign up soon to guarantee a decent pool of players in your chosen theme.
