Some of you might know I also game at Oxford and they are running this event you might be interested in:-

The second Bloody Big Battles Bash Day will be held on Saturday 18 February 2017 in Wolvercote Village Hall, Oxford UK.

This is an opportunity to play historical battles, using the Bloody Big Battles (BBB) rules.
Scheduled participation games include:

Sikh Wars (1845-1849) (exact scenario to be confirmed)
Hungarian War of Independence (1848-1849): Tápió-Bicske, and either Kápolna or Isaszég or possibly both
2nd Italian War of Independence: Montebello (1859)
Austro-Prussian War: Königgrätz (1866)
American Civil War: Shiloh (1862), Spotsylvania (1864) & possibly Gettysburg (1863)
Franco-Prussian War: Mars-la-Tour and Gravelotte (1870), and either Coulmiers (1870) or St Quentin (1871)
Russo-Japanese War, 1904-1905 (exact scenario to be confirmed)
WWII: (exact scenario to be confirmed), using Bob Mackenzie's WWII variant of the BBB rules

Game masters are asked to arrive by 9am to set up.
Games to start at 10am.
Most games will be played twice, so players will have the chance to play at least two games, possibly three.
We have the hall all day, so play can continue until 6 or 7 or beyond if need be.
Post-battle rendezvous in The Plough is encouraged (they serve good food).

£5 GBP entry on the door.
Tea/coffee and biscuits provided.
Bring a packed lunch or go to The Plough.

To read about what a great day the first Bash Day was, see these AARs: ... -2016.html ... -bash.html ... -show.html

Let us know which battles you are most interested in playing, and we will do our best to allocate you suitable slots.

It'll be a lot of fun, and we'd love to see you there!
