Who all is gonna go? I will talk to Ed and reserve the spots for us. I definitely plan on going, I'm just debating if I'm going to leave really early in the AM the day of or leave Friday night late (I have a football game that day).

"Festung Europa - Waffen SS and Soviet Guard armies are 1460 points

What does this mean? You have to play a lower point value army if you play any of these forces?

Yeah they are a variant list. What happened is they haven't made a complete list for them yet but you can play with them but typically they have better skill and or motivation and they points are adjusted. So basically if you a say British rifle team cost 150 pts the veteran british rifle team would be like 195 or so. Since they didnt make a complete list to adjust the point totals, you have to play with less points for it to be balanced. Hope that confusing answer helps.

It's based off of the old book. Festung Europa was the book before Fortress Europe.

If you've got Fortress Europe, don't worry about it.


And yeah, I know it's the same day as Hard Boyz, but I'm not really into Hard Boyz too much.
