To the historical purists among us, apologies in advance.

This is a TEAMS event. It means historical alliances and factions do NOT count for this particular event. So, you can have a sun-baked list of wine-drinking Yanks allied to a cold group of hard-nosed Finnish veterans in your team. In other words, an endless supply of materiel with fighting abilities makes for a hard team to beat.

Or you could go for Japanese with Australians together - a combination of suicidal tendencies and a can-do attitude especially in the offensive.

Post interest and team here. Cheers.

Gridiron Grenadier
Short-lived unit of ex-gridiron players who were recruited to toss these lobblies at the enemy. Only effective at short range. Re-emerged later as a toy where it enjoyed greater success. smile.gif

Front post updated.

Better start pulling out those old Airfix and HaT plastics, dollop some paint, and stick them (not you) to bases, and bring 'em along to a fun day of model mayhem and good cheer.

Just an update.

Player Pack is now due for release in the new financial year (Sun 1 July). It is still pairs. 400 points total, so 200 points per player maximum. This will be the only event using Rapid Fire 2 ruleset. We are hoping to obtain an updated version that is more fairer to the players across the board when devising lists. And will keep you posted on updates on our progress.

EOFY report

After several good night's sleep, the Rapid Fire 2 teams event is still officially on. But now the event is only $20 per pairing (this money will go towards prize support). Nothing else has changed apart from a new builder's list that will be made available shortly, thanks to Bryce Simon who wrote it up. This new list creator has a much more amenable builder's list for those wanting to take part. As a result, all lists must be submitted before 7 September for vetting by the Tournament organisers.

So, still pairs event with 400 points maximum (150 per player plus a 100 point "reserves/specialist" list to draw from for various situations/scenarios). Late War period (Jun 1944 onwards). Aircraft are mandatory (to counter the potent impact of armour and artillery platforms).

Please enter team interest here. NOTE: Any singles/unpaired players interested will be matched up. Faction irrelevant; this is a performance-based event.

Scale is still 20mm as Rapid Fire is played in 20mm scale anyway. No 25mm smalls or 18mm talls will be allowed on the day.

Event will still be a one-dayer event. Cheers.

Hi again. A noticeable lack of interest here has led to the decision to cancel this year's planned Smackdown event. Not to worry however. Tomorrow's another day. armata_PDT_34.gif
