Yes, the numbers were low for this first meeting, but the core did attend and put together many details for the next six months of activities.
Tops on the list is the upcoming Moscow Winter Offensive. We've set the date for 22 February, 2014, at Strategy and Games on 6th St. in Moscow. Here are the details so far...
The tournament with be themed, Late War, multi-front, winter books only. Tournament lists will be considered valid from the following books: Desperate Measures, Blood, Guts, and Glory, the ENTIRE Bastogne series, Gray Wolf, & Red Bear, including the latest errata and updates.
Here's the "monkey wrench"... the lists are limited to BOTH 1650 points, and four platoons (combat, weapons, or support). That being said, the mandatory 2 combat platoon rule is waived, only 1 combat platoon is required.
The will be prize support, with a discount for early entry. Lists are due by the 20th, but we would love to have player commitments as soon as possible.
The next big item was discussion about a Summer Offensive event, later June, with a Normandy theme. More on that later!
Also, in conjunction with S & G, we will try to dedicate the last Saturday of the month to FoW Ranger events, promoting and teaching the system we all enjoy.
Lastly, the Moscow Front wishes to publicly issue a club challenge to Da Mommaz Boyz, for a tournament-style event in Flames of War. This is intended to be a friendly affair, and if the challenge is accepted the details can be ironed out.
That is all the news deemed fit by the Information Komissariat for your consumption.
Remember, Victory is Forward!
