Welcome to the BANE OF WAR tournament
January 17th – 18th 2015
This year we will be playing Early War, at 1485 points, in all theaters (all lists in the Early War books and applicable pdfs).
56 players - Players will pre-pay and pre-register to be guaranteed a spot
(WE WILL NOT BE GOING OVER 56 PLAYERS!!)
Where: Texas Military forces museum, 2200 West 35th Street. Camp Mabry
BoW participants play in a WWII museum, surrounded by Sherman’s, 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 - Allowing 28 allied and 28 axis armies, so sign up soon!
Armies should only be chosen from the Early War books, or PDF’s that are applicable to that period.
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.
o (Timing someone out before round 6, and receiving the win will not give you the bonus point).
Sportsmanship scores are added at 10 percent.
Number of Wins will be used as a tie breaker
Painting will be in its own category having no affect on the overall winner.
A company level history, written and provided, will receive a bonus point.
o This is still negotiable, not written in stone yet…
If NGFS somehow shows up in a book/pdf before then, it will be banned…
Organizer: Mark Bayne firstname.lastname@example.org
Referee: Mark Bayne, Matt Kibbe, and…
Table/terrain awards will be given.
o Early war opens up all kinds of cool table possibilities! Please sign up with these
$25.00 entry fee – PRE-PAY via PayPal, check or money order! You can pay at the door but that will not guarantee you a spot. When spots are filled, they are gone. Does not include food this year, you will be paying the vendor directly for your meal.
I will be only adding people to the list who pre-pay. Pre-pay will be refunded if canceled 2 weeks prior, if you cannot attend, minus 5.00 for transaction fees.
NEW FOOD PLAN THIS YEAR!
o I will have more details once its locked in, no college food though!
T-Shirts are available for sale, I will send and post previews. T-shirts this year will come in sizes up to 4XL or XT, designs will be displayed before sale of shirts becomes available.
o These must be pre-ordered and pre-paid, via PayPal, check or money order.
Raffles; all proceeds are donated to the Museum.
Extra Sodas, water and chips will be .50 cents.
Last year was pretty insane; this year should be the same.
Everyone will get a swag bag and a prize
o Every year will have something different in the bag so return participants will get all kinds of cool goodies.
Painting (does not affect your overall score)
Painting will be scored by your opponent (his opinion) as follows:
o 1 point if Minimum base color (color primer is fine) (no bare metal please)
o 2 points if 3 color minimum and basic basing has been applied
o 3 points if nicely painted and based, good quality
o 4 points if done with a high level of detail for basing and painting
o 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
o Objectives and Best Platoon will also be awarded.

I will hold judgment on Barbarossa for now, but the plan is, it’s going to be allowed.
The art of war is governed by five constant factors
The Moral Law
Cause the people to be in complete accord with their ruler, so that they will follow him regardless of their lives, undismayed by any danger
This signifies night and day, cold and heat, times and seasons.
Comprises distances, great and small; danger and security; open ground and narrow passes; the chances of life and death.
He stands for the virtues of wisdom, sincerity, benevolence, courage and strictness.
Method and discipline
The marshaling of the army in its proper subdivisions, the graduations of rank among the officers, the maintenance of roads for supplies and the control of military expenditure
Sun Wu Tzu (c.544 – BC-c. 496 BC-c)
