BoW participants play in a WWII museum, surrounded by Shermans, halftracks and much more!
We will be moving many more of our tables out onto the floor this year.
What does this mean to you?
First, pre-register. I am going to do it a bit different and only allow 40 allied and 40 axis armies, so sign up soon!
Armies should only be chosen from the North Africa Mid-War book, or PDF’s that are applicable to that theater.
Lists from Eastern front will be accepted, if you can prove that a mirror to that company was active in NA/IT, but is not available in the current book. If that is the case a history must be provided.
Typical FOW scoring, adding a plus 1 if you win and either wiped your opponent, captured the objective, or reached the end of round 6.
(Timing someone out before round 6, and receiving the win will not give you the bonus point). Sportsmanship scores are used for tiebreakers, and are added at 10 percent. will also be used if necessary Painting will be in its own category having no affect on the overall winner. painting competition bonus point.

Table/terrain awards will also be given, and more focus will be put on these this year. Italian and Desert boards are very much needed! Please sign up with these early.
Not everything will be desert; much of Italy is VERY hilly and green, with villa’s and roads. Please bring tables of both kinds if you can. Many small villages and villas in the Mediterranean style (stucco with red tile roofs, like Spanish). Fields in the low lands. Orchards on the hill sides. Light woods mixed in.
$20.00 entry fee
$10.00 extra for 2 days of food which will be provided.
4 slices of pizza and 2 sodas for one day
Subs and 2 drinks for the next
(Subs will be MUCH better this year.)
I am working on getting a Texas BBQ to cater Sunday... T-Shirts are available for sale, I will send and post previews. T-shirts are $15.50 and Polo’s are $19.00, add 1 dollar for XXL (I know, that’s a lot of us!)
These must be pre-ordered and pre-paid, via PayPal, check or credit card. We will have an army for raffle; all proceeds are donated to the Museum.
Girl Scout cookies will be for sale as well.
My daughters will guilt you into purchasing at least one box, so be prepared!
Last year was pretty insane; this year should be the same.
Everyone will get a swag bag and a prize
Every year will have something different in the bag so return participants will get all kinds of cool goodies.
does not affect your overall score) Painting will be scored by your opponent (his opinion) as follows:
1 point if primed (no bare metal please)
2 points if 3 color minimum and basic basing has been applied
3 points if nicely painted and based, good quality
4 points if done with a high level of detail for basing and painting
5 points if exceptional with a very high detail, everything is superb.
Maybe consider theater specific for this as well
Overall best painted DOES NOT have to be theater specific.
Finalists will then be judged by a team of 4 at the end of the tournament. Secondary painting award
Objectives and Best Platoon will also be awarded.
