I just figured out that I could cobble together a pretty terrible mid-war British Paratrooper list but I don't think I'm going to be able to make this tournament anyway which works out because I've missed the deadline.

I will be making it to the Late war tournament though.

If you can make it great - the deadline is past but I will still take lists -> just drives me crazy getting lists the night before so I have asked for them two weeks in advance.

Meh, my kids are in too many activities May and June for me to get any free time for gaming. I'm maxing out my limit right now with Garagecon at the start of June.

That is a shame as the MW game is in my honest opinion the most balanced and where the game shines the brightest.
Still - will be happy to see you at the LW Tournament!

Mid war is also my favorite period. I feel more choices have to be made in the list building and more of the equipment is more role specific than in late war.

That's fair. After playing around with some lists I think it would be pretty easy to add the elements I'd need to let me play both mid and late war. I'd need to add some Sherman's to replace the Cromwells and then some Recce jeeps and artillery. The artillery could be used in both mid and late war so it would be a decent addition actually.

Not in time for this tournament but it gives me a direction for expansion.

Good stuff!
We do 2 EW, 2MW, & 2 LW Tournaments per year plus we try to do an event per quarter = Kursk is coming up!

It was a ton of fun. I didn't represent Canadians very well (the army), but the truth is all the games were close and I found that unlike Warhammer, games were very, very different from each other. I learned a lot.

We paid $5 for the event and all got a $10 gift certificate. What's not to like? Scott and Nathan should have been there (among others). Smile

I'll be at the late war event for sure. May and June are super-busy for my family. We have soccer and swimming for both kids, and taekwondo for Daniel which takes up most evenings during the week so we have to cram everything else into the weekends. I just barely was able to wrangle Warhammer playoffs and garagecon and I didn't want to push my luck by adding an out-of-town tournament to the mix. Plus I would have had to buy and paint more stuff to get my company converted to mid-war.

Glad it was a good time though, now I'm very excited for July!

Tournament
Mid War May
5/25/2015
Player Army Position
Sean British 1
David German 2
Lorne German 3
Tim   Soviet 3
Brody German 5
Brendon German 6
Chris German 6
Dana Finnish 8
Lance Soviet 8
Levi   Soviet 8
Jace   USA       11
Carson German 12
Don          Canadian 13
Michael     Canadian 14
Kyle   USA   14

Tournament standings and games are hard to explain - if I would have drawn the defender card against my last opponent there is no way on Earth he would have beat me and as the attacker I almost won (missed with 15 Flame thrower shots = 1 hit) but instead I lost 1-6.
