FOG Renaissance Doubles

Art De La Guerre Doubles
400 points any book 500AD—999AD.
£34.00 per team.

ADLG Special rules;
1 400 points made up of 2 x 200 point armies. Each army must not be more than 210 points with a combined total of no more than 400 points.
2 The armies chosen must be listed as potential allies in either army list. All troop options used from both lists must be available within the time period 500—999AD.
3 Commands from each 200 point “army” may be intermingled at deployment. Each player must command the 3 adjacent commands in their half of the table.
4 The break point of the army is the combined total of both armies.
5 If flank marching or ambushing 1 command it is permitted to start with 2 commands for one player and 3 for the other and then transfer one command to maintain the 3 + 3 requirement once the flank march arrives or ambush is revealed, in order to disguise the flank of arrival. In the same principle, if only one flank march/ambush is being attempted, either player may roll for it.
6 Each player has a separate standard camp that must be deployed in their half of the table. The loss of each camp counts as per the standard 200 point rules.
7 Teams are expected to roll for and move 1 command each simultaneously in order to not unduly delay play and to resolve combats together as well where possible.

Prize draw for entering before 31.12.15 Dave Ruddock & Phil Powell- Free entry to 2017 event

Congratulations to the 4 winning teams, to Paul Dawson for best painted army and Tim Child for his baggage.

I hope that Nigel is feeling better after his close encounter with a plate of eels.

Badcon will return in 2017 but perhaps not at the Town Hall due to an impending huge price hike. We will keep you informed as we have more details.

See you at shows and competitions throughout the year.

Regards, Dene, for BAD Wargamers
