Hi All. I am running the Bolt Action Competition again this year.

It's going to be 1000pts and themed. The theme will be a year of the war from 1941 to 1945, i.e. 1941 or 1942 or 1943 etc. The year will be selected by a popular vote here. In case of a tie I will have the deciding vote. If no one votes it will be a default of 1943. Japanese and American forces for 1941 will be from the first six months 1942 scenerio selectors in the relevant books.

You can have a maximum of one scenerio Selector reniforced platoon or a max of two generic platoons. Just use the scenerio selector to see what equipment is available.

The idea behind this theme is that it doesn't exclude anyone, where as a theme based on a front or battle would exclude armys/people.

awesome glad to hear BA has a slot at conquest count me in. As for which year we play in I really don't mind personally but preferably mid to late period. Are we restricting lists to just basic rulebook and respective army/country books or are we including theatre books too?

All army books as well as units from Ostfront and Battleground Europe are available. There may or may not be missions from the last two being played. There may or may not be mine fields, barbed wire, snow or darkness occuring. That is umpires surprise :lol:

Sounds like fun. Count me in. If we are going for a theme, would it be ok to use force selectors to make it easier to figure what to bring (as what was actually around at the time).

Are you going to use the BoltActionNet Season 2 rule changes? This will influence what I bring to the tourney.

I have paid and signed up for BA at conquest this year, lets hope we get the numbers! Have we decided on a year for our army lists to be themed around?

We will be using the official Bolt Action rules. I have read the BoltAction Net version and allthough I like some of them, I think some of them are unnecessary, also other tournaments are using the official rules and I have been informed that Natcon next year will also be using them.

Also force selectors are okay, although you can only field one platoon if going that way.

just out of curiosity will there be prizes for best painted, best sport etc etc? And do armies need to be painted?

Also, I vote for 1942 if we are planning on focusing on a certain year.

cheers.

Yes there will be a prize for best painted.

Also looking at the voting the year will be 1942.

One final request I will need everyones list no later than the weekend before Conquest. I will be getting in touch with all enrolled players later this month, so I can arrange the correct email account to send the lists to

Hi all,due to a lack of entries it has been decided to cancel the Bolt Action comp this year, hopefully next year we can get it going again. Good gaming everyone

Thanks
