Battleground Belgium
with Dirk Sels
On September 22nd, 2018, 16 players gathered in Lokeren for our 2nd annual Battleground Belgium game.

We chose for an 80 point Mid-War format and fair fight missions. We were able to attract people from Holland and Germany, so as organizers we were very happy with the turnout.

The missions were chosen in advance and were announced in the ruleset. All missions were fair fight missions. Attackers were chosen by luck and not by choice. In hindsight this may not be the best formula for a tournament, it might be better to have players decide themselves when building their army, food for thought Anyhow, as a result we had quite a few draws.

Since the two new mid-war book came out, we had pushed the list registration as late as possible to allow players to enter with list from Iron Cross or Enemy at the Gates.

Great fun and fair matches were had. Sometimes the dice gods withheld their blessings and at other moments they were generous, even too generous at times. In the end the Germans ( played by a German) came out on top. 

A big thanks to everyone that showed up and made the event one remember. 

Also a big shout-out to Battlefront, not only for creating the game we love, but especially for prize support that was given.

We from Battleground Belgium hope to see all of you again next year! And to those who missed out this year make sure to visit us next year.
