Back of Beyond / Africa Day

August 10 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm

Saturday 10th August 2019 10am – 4:30pm

A choice of two different campaign-based games is on offer, one set in the ‘Back of Beyond’ and the second in Darkest Africa 1870 – 1900.

Players sign up to ONE of the Campaigns, which will take place at the Marcus Garvey Centre, Lenton, Nottingham with the kind permission of Warlord Games.

Back of Beyond Campaign – Players take part in three different games set in a far-flung corner of the world during the Inter War Years, 1919 – 1939

All players should field similar forces and will take part in scenarios which serve to alter the balance of power in far off Bazristan.

Each player needs (1 x Character Figure (you), 3 x Infantry, 1 x HMG, 1 x Cavalry, 1 x Artillery, 1 x Armoured Car / Tank).

The better the ‘Class’ of unit, the fewer figures there are (Class 1 = Elites (6 figures), Class 2 = Regulars (12 Figures), Class 3 = Militia (16 Figures), Class 4 = Irregulars (24 Figures) and Class 5 = Rabble! (30 Figures)

Players should create an Index / Record card for each of their units, containing the name of the player (or their character), name and type of the unit, troop Class and number of figures (HMG, Artillery, Character and Armoured Car / Tank are all single pieces, with crew if necessary).

Games will be played using the excellent Setting The East Ablaze rules and appropriate supplements (for more information on the rules, check out our Flipthrough.)

Darkest Africa Campaign – Players take part in three different games set during the Scramble for Africa from 1870 up to 1900.

All players provide a 200-point force drawn from any of the Army Lists from the Death In The Dark Continent rule set.
