Uncle Sam Come Fight For Uncle Sam:
The 2012 Flames Of War European Team Championships

Battlefront Miniatures is proud to announce that the community who brings you the European Team Championships has added Flames Of War to their team tournament format for 2012. The event will be held August 18-19, 2012 in Gorzow Wielkopolski, Poland. The city is located approximately 100km east of Berlin and was the site of the original ETC held in 2006.

This unique team tournament format challenges each player because the team captain is responsible for assigning potential match-ups. The details on this exciting system will be heavily influenced by nations selected and the types of armies each player brings. The missions will also play a critical role in determining how the team captain will assign each team member to their gaming table and this will become increasingly difficult as player performance throughout the weekend will also influence selection.
Each team captain must determine which country the team will represent and a minimum of 3 players must be citizens of that country. Since the middle of December when the tournament was officially announced 13 of the 20 team slots available have been filled. There can be only one team per country so register your team quickly and assemble your players. When all 20 team slots are filled the ETC Flames of War Tournament will be the largest Flames of War tournament in the world. Don't miss out on a chance to be part of a historic event and experience a wonderful adventure in a great and hospitable country.

Each player will bring a Late War 1750 point army. The exact details and team rules for army building will be announced by the end of February. For more details and to register your team please go to this link:
