Battlegroup Tobruk Campaign Weekend at Bovington Tank Museum

Battlegroup Tobruk Campaign Weekend at Bovington Tank Museum

Postby andyt » 14 Mar 2017

Enthused by the imminent release of the Battlegroup Tobruk supplement and inspired by the success of previous Battlegroup Campaign Weekends, and with help from Ironfist Publishing and the Plastic Soldier Company, I shall be running a Tobruk weekend at the Battlegroup South Wargames show at Bovington Tank Museum in July 2017

This is not a conventional Tournament for those seeking individual glory, but will instead be fought between an Axis "team" and an Allied "team", with individual results contributing to the overall success or failure of your “team.”

Each player will need a 500pt Battlegroup in 20mm scale, chosen from one of the following army lists:

1. British Armoured Division
2. British Infantry Division
3. German Afrika Korps
4. Italian Ariete Division
5. Italian Infantry Division

We have space for 20 players, and each player will play 3 games over the course of the weekend (2 on Saturday, 1 on Sunday). The Event schedule has been designed to allow plenty of time for players to browse both the Wargames show and the Tank Museum. Tickets are priced £15 each (This includes entry to the show on both days) and will soon be available from the Plastic Soldier Company website.

Date: Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd July 2017.

Location: Bovington Tank Museum, Bovington, Wareham, Dorset, BH20 6JG.

Might want to drop it to 400 points...

Or I will be forced to bring an army of 16 Crusader IIs and a hunting horn... and shout 'Tally Ho' at annoyingly loud volumes!

Sounds like an excellent plan. Why would I want to discourage it?

Sadly I can't be bothered to paint that many Crusaders...

And it's a bit of a one trick pony - Charge the enemy like a steel clad Light Brigade!

Last year was brilliant... three of the best games of Battlegroup that I've had.

I highly recommend it.

It's the only way to be sure...

Though minefields really ruin your day.
