Gravesend Wargamers Club
War & Conquest Gaming Day

Sunday 29th June 2014

Venue: The Northfleet Veterans Club, The Hill, Northfleet, Kent, DA11 9EU.

The cost is just £12 per person.

There is parking outside the club and lunch is provided in the entry price

Format of the Day:

Please arrive around 9am, the first game will start circa 9.30, 

Army size: 4000 points. Armies should be selected from the scarab website online army organisation lists. You may include up to 500 points of Legends of War within the 4000 points.

We hope to fit players into groups with a theme, which are as follows-

The Greeks and enemies
Rome and their many  enemies
The Dark Ages

But we’ll try and accommodate any army you bring along.

If you have not yet confirmed your attendance or army preference, please let Phil know as soon as possible.

We intend to play 2 games, and so to help speed up play, the following deployments and objectives will be used. Attendees are urged to read the 'Battle Begins' section starting on page 153. You can download a set of cards with the Battle Objectives from our web site to speed up selection. Remember, 'No Plan Survives Contact with the Enemy' on page 159.

Game 1
Deployment Zone:          Summer (page 155)
Deployment Method:    (2) Deploy by Formation Type (page 158)
Game Length:                   Fixed Length (page 159)

Game 2
Deployment Zone:          Autumn (page 155)
Deployment Method:    (5) One Side Deploys First (page 158)
Game Length:                   Variable Length (page 159)

You may use Veiled Hand (page 158) in the games, should you so wish. As for a number of players this will be their first games, it would be polite to let your opponent know you are doing so.

Items of club terrain will be on the tables. Don't forget to select at least one Rally Point each. With that in mind, you will need to bring something to indicate your Rally Point, and if you wish to bring one or two items of terrain, that is absolutely fine.

Winning and Losing
There is no “street cred” in winning a game of toy soldiers. There will be a number of people who haven’t played much/at all, so please help them along and enjoy the day.

Finish time
About 5pm

Please get in contact with us via email at philturner@talktalk.net or telephone 07794908204.
If you cannot make the event or are delayed on the day, please let us know.

  1. Sounds like a great game day in the works - never played WaC, but "they" say it's close to WAB, which I've played a bit.

    1. I got the rules as a Christmas pressie, but have yet to have a game with them.

  2. Not a set of rules I play. But if it was I think it would be worth the trip. Thanks for pointing it out.

  3. Good luck to them, a nice bunch of lads!

  4. I wish I could attend, alas. That said have a great day and be sure to post an AAR!
