The Flames of War West Coast Nationals for 2022 will be held during the Las Vegas Open, January 29th and 30th at a new location: Rio Las Vegas. We had an awesome event in 2020 and we expect that 2022 will be even better!
This will be a Late War era tournament at 110 points. All armies MUST be fully painted. The tournament will be using the Extended Battle Plans to generate missions from the More Missions pdf on the Battlefront website. Matchups will use Swiss Pairings, with ties broken by strength of schedule and numbers of wins.
Army lists are due not later than January 10th, 2022. These may be created using any V4 Late War book or official expansion available by January 10th, and should preferably be created using Forces of War. Please submit by sending an email with your list to [email protected] with a Subject line “2022 LVO West Coast Nationals”. Please also indicate which gaming club/group you are a member of as I will endeavor to ensure that your first round matchup will not be against another player from your group!
LVO has given us a hard player cap set at 48 spots (24 tables). The sooner we can get people registered the better the chances are we have at securing any extra table space we might want for this Nationals event.
Christian Sorensen will be the Tournament Organizer for West Coast Nationals 2022, assisted by the members of the Lost Angeles Historical Gaming Society. Any questions can be directed to [email protected]

Players should remain aware of time during each game. Time updates will also be announced at regular intervals by the tournament organizer. Please do not start a new round if both players will not have the time to finish before time is called. Once time is called it’s ‘dice down’ and there will be no finishing out the turn. Bad sportsmanship; i.e. cheating, slow playing, belligerent and/or aggressive behavior will not be tolerated.
Prizes will be awarded for:
