2017 Team Yankee and Flames of War events in San Antonio: update 4/23/2017



2017 Team Yankee and Flames of War events in San Antonio: update 4/23/2017

Feb 25:   First San Antonio Team Yankee tournament
at Dragon’s Lair / San Antonio.  70 points.  Lists due by Feb. 18th.  – Done!  A fun day for all!

July 1: Second San Antonio Team Yankee tournament
at Dragon’s Lair / San Antonio.  80 points.  Lists due by June 24th. 

in 2017 we will again have three Flames of War San Antonio  (FoWSA) tournaments:  Early, Middle,  and Late war played in that order.

April 29th, Early FoWSA (next Saturday) at Dragon’s Lair / San Antonio.
This tournament will use 3rd edition rules, because 4th edition will only have been out since March. 
1650 points.

July 22nd Middle FoWSA ( Saturday ) at Dragon’s Lair / San Antonio.
1600 /1680 points,+ see theme bonus below.
This tournament will use 3rd edition rules, because 4th edition / mid-war so far does not yet include Eastern Front material, and at least half of our players have Eastern Front armies.  

The mid war tournament will be themed to the Stalingrad campaign, and will include at least one 3’x4’ urban table for fighting in built up areas.  Lists from the Eastern Front book will be allowed to take a theme bonus of 80 points, on the condition that their lists may not include Tigers, Panthers, Soviet assault guns or KV-85s.
Yes, this will affect choice of lists!  But note that any category of troops will be historical: The Germans committed a Panzer division inside the city of Stalingrad.

and Late FoWSA on September 9th, using 4th edition rules, 1515 point lists.


For more information on all of these, watch this blog; the FoWSA facebook group and LSHM facebook group; the LSHM yahoo Groups, and of course the LSHM newsletter.
