On another point, knowing someone's army isn't enough as an army list not submitted could be re-arranged if needed to suit.

Not saying any of us guys would do that. :oops:

You have my sympathies Andy. I'm only the list checker for the Northern Doubles, but I continually get harassed by people saying it's unfair that I know other players armies.

It's impossible to remember any army unless they are barking mad or completely different - you are checking the army, literally that. You aren't looking at composition, simply how many points (Yes, I know Bob...), are they the right troops and have they complied to the notes, minimums and maximums and any particular options for that army.

It's a thankless task that must be done. And for that - you have my thanks Andy.

Andy,

I did send my list on Friday. I will send again tonight as you seem to be missing it.

Apologies to all for holding up R&Rs. I am playing Later Seleucid, which will please those who made predictions. :D

Sorry folks - I've spotted the glitch that was holding up some of the email forwarding from the fogamlists@.. address onto Andy - all hopefully should be resolved now.

Palmyran if anyone really wants to know.....which of course, could be just about anything!

:D

That's an understatement. FWIW I think you made the right call - I would've made the same call but for a different reason.

Oh - and I just found out I'll be umpiring the early period. Aided and abetted by that nice Mr Briggs.

*sigh* I wonder when they are planning to ask me? We might need to ask for a bit of extra time for our games Pete as last year was a nightmare in a couple of rounds.
