What: Flames of War Escalation League
When: March 16, 2013 through May 11, 2013
Where: The Gamer's Armory in Cary, NC
Description/Rules: (provided by Andrew Hall)
This Escalation League will be Late War!
Pick a nationality and stick to it, you may experiment with the various lists of that nation until week 4 when you should settle on a list and stick with it.
Please only fully painted/based stuff on the table. What constitutes a fully painted model is at least 3 colors and basing.
One of the goals of this League is to motivate us all to clean those painting queues out!
Any FOW games that meet the league restrictions and are played at The Gamer’s Armory will count towards the league scores.
During each escalation period, you must play each League game against a different opponent. League days will be held Thursday Nights between 5:00 pm and 9:00 pm,
but League games can be played anytime during the league period; if you plan to play on a night other than Thursday Night,
please be sure to check with The Gamer’s Armory to be sure there is enough space available to play!!
