Gauntlet 2018: Broughton (nr Chester) 7/8 July

I've just got confirmation for the dates of Gauntlet, a fine little show the Deeside Defenders put on each year at the Broughton Wings Social Club just outside of Chester. This year it'll be on the 7/8 July. It's a great little show (a few traders, some bring and buy, interesting games, tea, a bar, and a friendly crowd). We've had Oldhammer games at this show on two occasions in the past:

2014: The Shrine of the Forgotten Goddess Deva http://warlordpauluk.blogspot.co.uk/2014/07/gauntlet-5th-july-2014-battle-of-deevas.html
2016: The Despoliation of the Wirheal http://wheretheseapoursout.blogspot.co.uk/2016/08/battle-report-despoliation-of-wirheal.html

I'm definitely going to head back this year, and would be great to gather other oldhammerers for a game. There's still a good chunk of time left to go to get things ready, so I'm very open as to ideas, though probably keeping with the Albion flavour of the previous games. Based on past years' experience, most likely the best day for people will be Saturday 7th (though I'm not averse to heading back on Sunday 8th).

All welcome!

I'm definitely up for this, certainly for one day, perhaps two.

Do you have anything in mind about the game yet? I've got a crusading warband of Law that I'd like to use or perhaps my Wood Elves. Could go up to about 1k points with both, or combine them for a bigger game.

Hiya! Will be great to see you again. No big concept for the game, but warband of law sounds very good - I'm thinking maybe that the chaotic marauders from the most recent games have been having things too much their own way and there needs to be a rally for the defence of the Wirheal ;)

Sounds good, would be happy to bring some righteous Law to the inhabitants of the Wirheal!
