Upcoming Early War Tournament in Portland

Just a heads up, it's official now - there will be an Early War tournament at Guardian Games in Portland, Oregon on February 20, 2016. You can get some information on the Flames of War forum, but the official announcement is over on the Ordo Fanaticus forum. Point total will be 1550, which is just north of the official point value for 2016, but not egregiously so.

I'm hoping for a good turn out at this event, as I am finally going to have my Polish Black Brigade finished and ready to run at this tournament. I've been jonesing to get these guys out in their glory for months, and now I finally have a decent local tournament to do so at (EW Nationals is outside my travel range for this year, unfortunately).

If you're going to be in the area, or can now plan to be in the area, come on out! The crew here in Portland puts on some very fun tournaments, and Guardian Games is one of the best gaming stores in the nation - hands down!


  1. Sounds like a good event, good luck. Just got back from Shifting Sands and the Poles did very well.

    1. I'm hoping the army does well - honestly at this point I'm hoping we get enough people to actually have the tournament - signup has been a bit light so far... :-(
