For this event we’d like to make sure that forces, so far as possible, represent ones that are as plausible as possible for a game that has WWII as its theme. While imperfect, this will help to mitigate the impact of some of the more problematic units in the game without resorting to house rules or ‘comping’.
We’d really encourage players to go ‘as themed as possible‘, and if you want to do a specific unit at a specific time and place (a reinforced platoon from Johnny Frost’s Bn. at Arnhem, for instance, or maybe a Panzer Zug from the 21st Panzer Division in 1941, or some such) then crack on and we’ll be suitably impressed (and there might be a prize for ‘Best Force’ or similar in the mix to reward that). But, if all you want is a force that looks right for the time and place for your chosen nation, that’s fantastic too.
We’ve found that the overwhelming majority of forces fit into this structure with little or no tweaking.
If time’s limited or historical research isn’t your strong suit then the guidelines are designed to help you and the event organisers will be very happy to offer any assistance they can if desired. Drop them a line here and ask for a players pack that outlines everything you need to know about building a force for this event.
You don’t have to play if you want to visit
We’ll will be there with a large stand packed with great products. Not only our own ranges but also the full range of Army Painter sprays, glues, basing materials and brushes. We will also have a large range of our highly detailed resin vehicles for all you Bolt Action fans.
Not to forget of course that we’re back at a fantastic venue that has the added attraction of holding part of the incredible Wheatcroft collection of military vehicles. The Wheatcroft family are constantly adding more from their vast collection to the venue so there is always something new to see. Now there is no earthly reason not to attend the show!
