The Northwest Historical Miniature Gaming Society convention Enfilade 2014 Flames of War Late War 1650pt Tournament is in the books. It was held at the Red Lion Hotel in Olympia, WA on May 24th. The convention ran from May 23-25.
When we arrived to open the doors to the State Room the tables were all arranged like last year. The event space could handle up to 30 players comfortably if we needed to so there is plenty of room for growth.
We had twelve players come out and battle it out for ww2 late war supremacy. There were 7 Axis players and 5 Allied players. I could not have asked for a better group of players to be tournament director for. There were no issues to speak of and everyone was a great sport.

Images of the Some Armies
There were some really well painted armies this year but Steve Z. produced something that had the extra wow factor. He lost points on the historical part but gained for original idea.
Images from the action...
For reference, the player packet from 2014.
We will see what war era the tournament will be for next year.... early war, mid war, or late war....
I look forward to seeing you all again for Enfilade 2015.
