This information should be sent not later than 14.08.2016.

It is possible to send the entry later but in such case the player may send only have one Skirmish list;



II. PLAN OF THE TOURNAMENT

Making payment for tournament and sending corrected and approved roosters mean that you are officially registered.



The tournament includes 5 battles. 3 on Saturday and 2 on Sunday

Saturday

Players will be allowed to enter the tournament hall at 9.00

09.30 – 12.00 First battle

12.30 -15.00 Second battle

15.30 - 18.00 Third battle

Sunday

Players will be allowed to enter the tournament hall at 9.30
10.00 - 12.30 Fourth battle

13.30 – 16.00 Fifth battle

16.30 End of the tournament and award ceremony.

II. General Rules:
1. Games will be played at the Skirmish Level using the materials from “By Fire and Sword” main rulebook, “The Deluge” and "Armies of the By Fire and Sword" supplements, FAQ and Errata.
2. The Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and Swedish army lists from the main rulebook are replaced in whole by the lists from “The Deluge” supplement;
3. Limited ammunition rules (written down) and all optional rules (excluding: Average Rolls and Group Orders) will be used.
4. "Small Skirmish Force" rule is modified. You can play against this Skirmish with any Force (it doesn't have 7FPS or less) however any Small Skirmish Force can use an optional rule "Choosing an effects"
5. “Scenarios” chapter from “The Deluge” supplement shall be used, excluding The Convoy scenario;
6. In the first battle the pairs shall be drawn so that armies of the same nations do not fight against each other. In the following battles players will be paired according to points scored, so that armies of the same nations do not fight against each other. If the difference between players is more than 1 Large Point, or there is no possibility to pair otherwise there might be a situation where 2 players with the same army play against one another.

IV. Army Composition:
1. Army lists published in the By Fire and Sword main rulebook, "The Deluge” and "Armies of the By Fire and Sword" supplements and also at BFAS website can be used in the tournament, excluding forces with the Convoy Special Rule.
2. A Small Skirmish Force is a force with an appropriate Special Rule or with 4 or less FSP;
3. In every battle you may use a different version of the Skirmish Force list of the nation of your choice. The version is chosen after you get to know what nation you will be facing.
4. The players are obliged to have readable Skirmish Force lists with:
a) Force Strength Points of the whole Skirmish Force
b) Force Value
c) Reconnaissance Points
In order to make it easier for referees to check the lists each Skirmish Force should be described with a name, level used and additional operations such as: adding bases, exchange of units etc.
5. The Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth army will be divided into Polish, Lithuanian, Courland and Danzig armies.
6. In addition to their army the players should also bring as many field fortifications models as may be necessary for them. If a player does not have such fortifications, they may not use them in a game.

V. Appearance of the Army:
1. Armies must be completely painted and have their bases finished and bases to wargamer rules.
2. WYSIWYG rule is in force. Shields and arquebuses are excluded from the WYSIWYG rule (in case of cavalry). This equipment is barely visible so it will not cause confusion.
3. A complete ban on proxies is in force – that is using a model of one formation as a model of another formation.
4. The tournament is organized by Stoke2Stafford wargamers and only Wargamer figures can be used. This does not apply to terrain elements, obstacles and field fortifications.
5. Conversions are allowed. You need to notify the head referee about them in advance and he will decide whether to allow them on the tournament.



VI. Points:
Players score Small Points in a battle according to the level of victory. The player that lost receives 0 SP, and the winner gets the difference between the points he scored and the points scored by the opponent.



Large Points are granted for the level of victory or defeat:

0 – Historical defeat
1 – Strategic defeat
2 – Tactical defeat
3 - Draw
4 – Tactical victory
5 - Strategic victory
6 – Historical victory

Classification Rules:
1. The classification is made according to Large Points.
2. If several players have the same number of Large Points the classification is decided by Small Points.
3.If there is still a tie the classification is decided by the result of a direct game between those players (number of Small Points in this game).
4The number of historical victories, then strategic victories, then tactical victories
5. If there is still a tie the classification is decided by fate (we will draw the winner for example by a throw of a coin – the winner gets the higher place.

Would love to, but August bank holiday weekend is the Sealed Knot AGM (in Sunderland on the Saturday) and it's a bit of a hike between there and Aston.
Good luck though.
