D-Day +17 themed Flames of War

The Germans abandoned to the US  7th corps their first line of defense in Cherbourg. The bombardments of June 22 disorganized the German lines and General Collins, commander of the 7th Corps, maintained the pressure.

General Montgomery, who planned operation Epsom, arrived in France and set up his headquarters in the village of Blay, west of Bayeux. He is preparing for the start of Epsom, which is due to start on 25 June, if supplies and reinforcements of men and vehicles are on time. The 5th British infantry division, which was blocked on the front by German defenders until June 18, continues a very slow progression, slowed down by Epsom’s preparations.

The German high command, struggling to defend its positions in Normandy, still believes in its revolutionary weapons, including the V-1 rockets. Numerous copies are sent day and night on mostly civilian objectives in England.

Het is weer zover, tijd voor ons jaarlijkse D-Day toernooi! Op 23 juni kun je weer alles uit de kast trekken om de strijd om Europa te bevrijden van de Nazis, of natuurlijk juist te verdedigen voor het derde rijk!

Warfare 2023 – Late War D-Day 80pts

The 80th anniversary of D-Day can only mean one thing for Flames of War – a return to Normandy! Join us for this Late-War Normandy themed 80-point Tournament. This event is aiming to highlight the historically themed competitive fun that is Flames of War, with beautiful themed Normandy boards and the first award of ‘The Steve Charlton Memorial Best Painted’ trophy – what is likely to become the best Flames of War army painting competition. All this is set in the relaxed but challenging atmosphere that is unique to Warfare, and bought to you by the cast of the Shoot and Scoot Podcast.

tournament. No proxy models are allowed. Any proxy models will be removed.

Pairings will be used for the event. Players should download this app and have it ready
to use. Initial pairings will use player origin and store (state, city, store/club) and alliance
(Axis/Allies). Subsequent rounds will use wins, victory points, strength of schedule. All
efforts will be made to keep player origin in mind during pairing.
We will use the Flames of War Mission packet where the players and their opponent will
choose their stances, find that selection in the matrix and roll a die. The players will then
play the mission chosen. Players should download or print the most recent packet.
If there is an odd number of players, that player can choose to take a bye, if so that
player gets an 7-2. Experimental missions, with the exception of “It’s A Trap” will be
used.
Players should bring 4 physical copies of their list, one for their reference and one for
each opponent.

The PAF includes breakfast, lunch and participation in the costs of the event. A refreshment bar will also be on site for those thirsty.

Lists: Late War, in 105 points (ETC compatible format)
The idea is to play in this format to both sharpen the lists of players preparing for the ETC and allow “relaxation” players to have fun. We will try to balance the Fluff players and the Tournament players in each camp and ensure that each participant evolves in their environment of choice (those who wish to prepare for the ETC will be able to multiply the sharp duels, the more fluff players experiment with what they like). The matches obviously count for the campaign!
