Podcasts! I'm on one

Over on the Madaxeman site, you can hear me ramble with Tim and various others on lots of things wargaming.

In some podcasts, wine may be involved.


Worlds 2017

It's almost July and time to think about the Worlds.

This year, I'll be joining the central London mob as part of our pre Brexit tour and joining them in Salamanca for ADLG.

They had us as wine and sunshine.

We don't expect to do well, we are aiming for mid table this time, last year, the CLWC got spanked very hard at the Worlds in Belgium.

It's an open period, allowing for two armies lists, so, like most people, it will be an anti elephant list and one for everything else.

I've got no idea what to bring.

Rules : 

L’Art de la Guerre - 2014 (V3) with all clarifications and official errata at: 

The umpire’s rulings will be final. 

We will use the standard scoring system found in the rules. 

Army lists : 

All army lists are authorized. The lists will not exceed 200 points. Players will be able to send in two versions of the same list without any restrictions on the date or geographical origin, After announcing your list to your opponent, both players will place on the table the version of the list they will use before the initiative die roll. After all ambushes are revealed and flank marches have arrived, both players will check the other’s list. All mistakes will be penalized by the umpire. 

In order to make list checking easier, please use the following website to create your army list (allies in the last command): 

Please indicate in the “troop description” the description as found in the army list in the rulebook. 

All lists must be sent to the umpire by Monday 10th July 2017 at: 

On 15th July, the list of participants and their lists will be published. In order to encourage players to respect the deadline, after July 15th all published army lists will be considered reserved and no longer available for late entries.
