Well it's not in the same league as Joy of Six, but there will still be plenty of beautiful Baccus and other 6mm goodness on display: the second Bloody Big Battles Bash Day will be held on Saturday 18 February 2017 in Wolvercote Village Hall, Oxford UK.

 

This is an opportunity to play historical battles, using the Bloody Big Battles (BBB) rules.

Scheduled participation games include:

 

Sikh Wars (1845-1849) (exact scenario to be confirmed)

Hungarian War of Independence (1848-1849): Tápió-Bicske, and either Kápolna or Isaszég or possibly both

2nd Italian War of Independence: Montebello (1859)

Austro-Prussian War: Königgrätz (1866)

American Civil War: Shiloh (1862), Spotsylvania (1864) & possibly Gettysburg (1863)

Franco-Prussian War: Mars-la-Tour and Gravelotte (1870), and either Coulmiers (1870) or St Quentin (1871)

Russo-Japanese War, 1904-1905 (exact scenario to be confirmed)

WWII: (exact scenario to be confirmed), using Bob Mackenzie’s WWII variant of the BBB rules

 

Game masters are asked to arrive by 9am to set up.

Games to start at 10am.

Most games will be played twice, so players will have the chance to play at least two games, possibly three.

We have the hall all day, so play can continue until 6 or 7 or beyond if need be.

Post-battle rendezvous in The Plough is encouraged (they serve good food).

 

£5 entry on the door.

Tea/coffee and biscuits provided.

Bring a packed lunch or go to The Plough.

The rules are pretty easy to grasp. At the participation games we've run at conventions, players generally get the hang of them within a couple of turns. Take a look at some of the reviews linked to here:

Come on down!

Well that would be good. While we'll do our best to fit in folks who just turn up on spec, ideally if you're serious about joining in it would be helpful for our planning to know for sure and what games you're interested in.

Really good time had at the Bash day last week. Some lovely C19th games on, some of which were in 6mm. Very enjoyable and worth the trip down to Oxford from Liverpool.
