All tables will have a mission set out for that table. These missions will be taken from any of the books (main rule book, plus the additional mission at the end of this pack) and use the mission rules that are set for them. So choose your army wisely.
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 whatever) 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 – remember this is aimed at improving everyone’s enjoyment, it’s not meant to be a chore.
