It'll depend a lot on the armies you end up fighting and the terrain and the dice and ……….. however do have a great time at the weekend and you'll be a winner regardless of the results!

I look forwards to seeing how the bronze age boys have fared on Sunday.

Keep up the good work Hunter.
Good of you not to mention the 2,000 point penalty you are applying to armies submitted after the deadline. Oops, sorry as I just realised that you were keeping that as a little surprise.
Also whoever submits their list last has to sit next to Hunter at mealtimes.

That's us up to 20 lists received checked and with just a little rework all approved .   Almost half way there.  20 from 16 books folks.

Don’t get ahead of yourself.

I know a few trainspotter types who take a deadline literally

Well, I have not had much time for gaming lately, with family issues and travelling back and forth between Indiana and Texas. So, alas, I will not make it to Skull Rollers or Historicon this year as I had hoped.  :(

Well I am now feeling neglected and insulted. Two weeks to go to a major tournament and Hunter has not made his usual irrational prediction about me being tournament favourite. Am I loosing my allure or is it something to do with the fact that he has checked my list and has already spotted my amateurish mistakes in army composition.
In any case my carefully designed tournament preparations have gone up in smoke. Arrived at our club on Thursday for a critical match with the superb Stewart Riddick only to find that our gaming space had been taken over by a last minute funeral tea!! NowI can be blunt but how do you say to those lingering at a funeral tea that they are going to have to get out of the room as we have a wargame organised?
Was this a deliberate ploy of Mr Hope?

The boffins at Spotted Dog Productions have been overwhelmed by the blue on blue action that passes for a leadership(?) race in GB.   It does however now appear that BJ is such a peach that no-one in that race can come remotely close to his standards on integrity, gravitas and inclusiveness so they are now ready to turn their faces to the other great competition of our time - Skulls!  So worry not John - a full and frank independent assessment of your chances is very much on the cards!   So sorry that some pesky mourners got in the way of your training camp arrangements but useful intel for the boys at SDP to factor into their podium predictions.

The list submission deadline has passed folks and I have 20 lists from (I reckon) 42 entrants. I think that roughly 5 bods are playing at Belisma so we can forgive them the extra time to perfect their uber armies prior to Skulls.  For others I would really appreciate lists asap.
Thanks
