Squarebashing Day 2019
« on: December 12, 2018, 11:27:37 AM »

Squarebashing 2019 is to be held on Saturday 15th June 2019,
at Battlefieldhobbies in Daventry.

The theme will be
1914: Coming of World War


Rules
Any army can be used, dated up to and including 1914, from any theatre.
Rather than dividing into two sides this year I thought it would do something a little different. All players will be in a single pool and the draw will be organised on other ’social’ factors such as army match-up, or ‘different opponents’. So everyone gets to play someone they don’t normally. Scoring will be simplified and will only account for a percentage of the total score. The other components will be a best army ballot and most sporting player. The details are yet to be finalised.

I’d like to to make this year more inclusive by trying to bring in more players where possible so even if its for a single game or tutorial game.
Buffet will be provided and all tickets are available from the Battlefield hobby site


Tickets: £12.50 including lunch

Simon - that's great - many thanks again for setting this up.

The likelihood of my getting a 1914 army painted in time is vanishingly small: is it possible/likely that there will be some loaner armies to use, please?

Sean, do you have Balkan conflict also? I'd like to get some unusual games ... 1914 armies are the backstop really

Not yet but I have been tempted to get one from Irregular as they have quite a comprehensive range.

I am hoping to attend and have French, British, German and Russian if someone needs to borrow an army

Very nice!

But I've just splashed out on the new RFCM polo shirt...

I have an aversion to paying for postage on anything (the Amazon effect), but would be willing to organise a bulk order for those attending the Square Bashing Day to share the postage pain, if folk are interested?
