Here I'm presenting the Runners & Riders for the FoG:AM-tournament
http://www.tabletopturniere.de/t3_tourn ... ?tid=10482

We have 47 players from 12 different countries, and 34 different armies.
Thanks to everybody to have the armylists sent in-time.
This makes it much easier for us.

Thanks a lot

Martin

Well done Martin - great work.

Will you be publishing the date of each army as well?

Where there are options - it would be good to know which it is? EG - WotR / Moldavian or Wallachian etc.

And why are some people still anonymous?

A high proportion of most different flavours of Romans - 8 in total - plus the Later Ptolemaics may have a few as well. Certainly a lot more HF than I expected. (gulp!)

This is so exciting! The high proportion of Romans is a bit of a surprise, and the number of Medieval German City Leagues is even more so. That's why playing these international events is so much fun.

Looking forward to landing in Germany in a couple weeks.

Well, I will neither publish the army date, as that will take away much of the surprise nor will I post chosen options.
When I start to do it this way, the next player wants to know which allies are used, how many BG's has each army etc.
Next to the amount of work for me, I think, it's much more fun speculating without having all information.

The players showing as anonymous have selected their names not to be shown in the software, but I will have a complete list very soon to be posted here including all names!

Excellent work Martin, really looking forward to this competition.Really interesting mix of armies.

ArrIving by train from London Wednesday and staying the hotel Haus Morgan if anyone is in the least interested. Might be few Central London in and around the area. Tim Porter is staying there as we'll I believe.

May be being stoopid as usual but what time is kick off. To risk a football analogy... :twisted:

Not a problem Martin - but dates and options are disclosed - the number of BGs and Allies are not. Having them in advance saves delay at the table whilst you look up what the differences are.

You must have a huge amount of work to do as it is so quite understand your reluctance. I look forward to the surprises. If anyone is interested my army date is 1290 AD.

Hi Martin - just read the 'Information & Rules' for the event. Games are 3.5 hours.

It then says 'current round shall be finished' when time is called.

Is this the individual player turn or the final pair of bounds (excluding the JAP) - so that both players have an equal number of turns?
The venue is open from 12:00 CEST, and at 1:00 pm CEST, we will start with the games
The published info says 1.30 pm for the first game. Has this changed?

Thanks
Pete
