Hey Sg Thorne,

Single elimination, or one of each pair is eliminated each round.

We're trying to keep it simple for this first go.

We are pleased to announce our first PicoArmor $21 USD/$30 USD Stand Campaign. We'd like to send a special thanks to Thad for letting us riff off his idea, and to Rob Heath who has shown enormous generosity and enthusiasm for helping us get this beta version off the ground.

What your unit might look like

While our first attempt is land warfare, we see that air combat could easily be supported on this platform.

Our goal is to make wargaming available to interested members by making the game-play more accessible through Roll20, mobile phone tech, or face-to-face sessions. We're especially interested in welcoming new members (ArcLight – our raffle winner – is a new player!) And making this a training ground for our next generation of wargamers!

There is a detailed set of instructions on the forum, which includes supported minis from our stock, and a link to the rules we'll be using below. We've also added a PDF. We're testing out how best to post information for this campaign. We'll keep this as the launch post, plus registration and will open up a new thread for Q&A related to the campaign.

We want to give you the top-lines on how we're going to try to roll out this first campaign.

We're using early WWII minis (follow the link at the bottom for details).

Registration: If you're interested in playing, follow the link to our forum and post a reply to the post that includes your location and your preferred platform to play – f2f, Roll20, Google Hangouts.

Timeline: Get your units ready now! We'll have more instructions for those who are doing f2f, Roll20, or Hangouts. All times are CST.

  1. First round – two weeks that include Little Wars in Illinois (April 28-30), and Recon 2017 (May 4-7). Face-to-face or remote play results submitted by midnight, May 8.
  2. Second round – two weeks, results due by midnight, May 22.
  3. Third round – one week, results due by midnight, May 29.
  4. Fourth round (if needed) – one week, results due by midnight, June 5.

Please follow this link for information and to register.

We Look Forward to Fighting!
