  3. Event is approved for the Enfilade convention and table space is reserved. Enfilade 2018 Flames Of War Mid-War Tournament Ruleset: Flames of War v4 published by Battlefront Miniatures Ltd. with Lessons From the Front v4 updates Date: May 26, 2018 Location: Enfilade convention Olympia, WA Convention Website: http://www.nhmgscitadel.com/enfilade/ Room: State Room (same as last year) Scale: 15mm Era: Mid-war Points: 71 points Rounds: 3 Duration: 2h15m per round Registration: Must be registered for the Enfilade convention.

Along with signing up on Enfilade site, post here that you are signing up with info: first name and last initial, axis or allied, and nation. Organized by: Rose City Dukes FoW Ranger Group Tournament Organizer: Steve McCuen pdxwar@gmail.com Club Website: rosecitydukes.wordpress.com Force Lists: The following books are allowed and standard v4 force construction should be used: Afrika Korp Desert Rats Fighting First Avanti Armoured Fist List Submission: Email your army to: pdxwar@gmail by May 23rd 12:01 Pacific timezone for verification. Get it in earlier to make sure it is valid and get feedback. Schedule for Saturday 26 May 2018 09:15 Final registration/Player Briefing 09:30 – 11:45 1st Round (9:30-11:45 AM) lunch break 12:45 – 15:00 2nd round (12:45-3:00 PM) break 15:30 – 17:45 3rd round (3:30-5:45 PM) break 18:00 Awards Presentation (6:00 PM) Missions: Missions for the round will be randomly determined by the TO. Command cards are allowed. Battleplans will not be in use. Fog of War cards are NOT allowed. Attacker/Defender Determination will be using the same method that mid-war Nationals is using this year to calculate Attacker Defender (subject to change after Adepticon if needed): Tank Units - 2pts - meaning any unit with Tanks with an Armor Value (not "-") that is not a Transport Unit or have the Spearhead Rule. Mech Units - 1pt - meaning any unit with Transports (Armored, Unarmored,or Horse-drawn), Unarmored Tank Teams (like British Portees), Any Tank Unit with the Spearhead Rule, or Cavalry Infantry/Gun Units - 0pts. - Any Unit made up of only Infantry Teams and Gun Teams. Game Play: Players are responsible for monitoring the time and the judges will announce time intervals throughout the tournament. A true act of sportsmanship is not starting a new turn if both players will not be able to finish that turn. The game should be called if both players cannot finish their turn and the results should be calculated. Slow play is to be actively discouraged. When time is called the game must immediately end regardless of the action taking place in the game. New turns cannot be started even if starting a new turn would award an immediate victory or cause a player to make a company morale check. TOURNAMENT SCORING (running scenarios still but this is probably the scoring) We will be using a spreadsheet for scoring and here is the breakdown we will use for the Enfilade 2018 tournament.

    Reboot Northwest Invasion

    Somewhere, in the dark woodlands of the Northwest… …lies a hidden treasure… …earned in blood… …but unseen for years: The Northwest Invasion trophy Will the woodsmen from the South be able to keep it? Will the horde from the North take it? Which heroes will tip a pint and congratulate each other on their victory? I would like to resurrect this tradition. But in attempting to organize this, it has become obvious that I will need some assistance. One person, part-time, will not reboot this and keep it going. Need someone on the WA end to volunteer to help with the organization and logistics. If anyone else (from Oregon or Washington) justs want to help out with one part, then that assistance will also be welcome (sponsorship, venue, prizes, format, promotion, terrain, umpiring, judging, recruiting players, etc.) To get this going again, we need: a venue a team tournament format recruiting players and something to generate interest ...that will draw together both Oregon gamers and Washington players. Firstly, I need help in nailing down an affordable and mutually attractive location Looks like game stores midway between Portland and Lacey/Lakewood are too small: Centralia, Castle Rock, Longview. As for other options, my limited research in renting a hall indicates that this option is too expensive (e.g. $300.00 for non-members of the American Legion Post in Centralia), unless someone is a member of an organization where they can get a discounted rental rate. If we can get gamers from Seattle and Redmond, it might make sense to hold this at OC&C. But to do that, we need commitment from the Oregon guys to travel there. If held in Portland, we might get some players from farther south and east in OR. If there was some sponsorship, it might sweeten the pot, draw more gamers. Ideas and volunteers welcome.

  23. For those gamers not registered yet, I am quoting a message from the NHMGS Yahoo newsgroup: " 2016 Enfilade Pre-Registration ends on April 27! So all of you Gamers who haven’t Pre-Registered, you only have 2 weeks to get it done. That means paid registration! Remember you get the 3 days of the Con, 2016 NHMGS Membership, $30 Reg gets a $5 T-Shirt and 2 online Event/Game sign-ups. 3 as a GM! Remember, if you cannot make the Con for any reason we will refund your money less the $5 NHMGS Fee. So lets get going and get Registered! Note: Due to a Policy change you must do your 2/3 online Event/Game sign-ups before Game sign-up closure! They will not be allowed to be carried over to the Con and will be lost. Save yourselves some time and don’t stand in the sign-up line those 2 periods. AL Rivers Enfilade Registration Coordinator"
