Flamescon 2015

It's that time of the year again! When we bring out our toys and make merry on the fields of battle. In a slight change from the last 10 years Battlefront asked local clubs if they'd like to take over as they are pretty busy with Team Yankee and other "Projects". So myself and a member of the North Shore Wargaming Club jointly opted to run FLAMESCON!

 Set up in Action

With 39 Players (One of the T.O's would fill in to make 40) we set up 20 tables we set fourth to making this FlamesCon as awesome as possible. An early Start at 9am with 2 hour 15 minute rounds of 1500 point Late War Armies. It's only Day 1 as I write this and the scores are moving, shifting and occasionally jumping in surprising ways. One player has come all the way from Italy!

Now for some pictures from the action!
