Got it. Added it. Thank you Edward. Just one question. Which nationalities are yours & which are Brian's? Just so we know who to talk to for what figures.

*****   Ayr - Sheffield October game   *****

John, Allan & Scott will arrange and umpire a Seven Years War game for the 2 day October game with Sheffield. It will be on 26th & 27th October for the game. Setup on Friday night 25th October.

To help facilitate this I have been tasked with getting lists of available 15mm Seven Years War figures, as units of 3, 4 or 5 figure bases from our members.

If you would either write a list and give it to me or private message me a document.  I will collate it for the umpires and let people know what we need.

If I can get lists from people this Sunday or next it will get things moving along.

Also an idea of who will be wanting to play (and what day if necessary) and who is available to help set up on Friday night.

Thanks for your cooperation.

I hadn't heard anything being planned. Its 2 months away & to start trying to paint up the number of figures necessary for a 10 - 20 player game in a new period wouldn't be feasible.

Its why I suggested 20mm WW2 or Napoleonic. I know there are probably enough painted figures knocking around in folks collections to be able to put something together.

Was there not a bit of a push for doing something very different this year? Like ancients/medieval?
Or what about a pike and shotte type period? A few of the guys have been trying English civil war rules.

Thanks for setting this up Doc. I'll be in this year (not doing the Leeds show anymore) and happy to play whatever the club goes for Very Happy

I've put up a new topic for discussing our 2018 game in October with the Sheffield lads.
Thought it would be easier to follow in its own topic rather than getting lost among the weekly games posts in the main thread.

As far as I remember (wasn't in last year), it was an American War of Independence battle.

I'm feeling a 28mm Napoleonic or 20mm WWII battle would be easiest to arrange with the availability of figures in the club. We probably need to get an idea of what is easily fielded in painted figures from members. Would be best to get that in the club rather than putting it up publically here.

I'm willing to chase a list of figures available list.
