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.

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.
