Logged on to see a plethora of posts from Kiwi WHFB bloggers about the upcoming deadline for early registration for NATCON the big 3 day tournament/convention 29th-31st March. It was a deadline I had completely forgotten about so it was a nice reminder.
While I was planning on taking my Ogres to the event to compete in the WHFB competition I have decided against it for 2 reasons (1) the event allows special characters which I loathe and (2) it is also using the Warhammer Forge: Monstrous Arcanum rules which I am not interested in. My only other alternative was Flames of War which I had initially rejected as the players pack didnt allow me to use Hells Highway, but thanks to Battlefronts release of the Market Garden compilation this week (already on order) I can now take my favourite Fallschirmjager list.
So with spousal approval granted (always necessary when you leave your wife at home with 3 kids for a long weekend of gaming) its time to start organising and touching up 1750pts of Late War Fallschirmjager for what should be a fantastic 3 day event. Or if I can get the OK from the organisers and a workable list is viable I might go with one of the PDF Gebirgsjager updates.
