Hello and thanks for taking the time to read this thread,

In September next year (2006) my gaming club, Les Squigs du Nord, will be repeating its 40K Tournament again. Only this time bigger !

It will be held in Calais, France. For those that are not familiar with Calais, it is the French Port on the English Channel opposite Dover. It is the principal Cross Channel route for both cross channel boats and the Euro Tunnel / Euro Star. Therefore does not involve any travaling once on the french side of the channel for UK residents. It is also within half an hour drive from the Belgian border on the coastal motorway and therefore provides good access for the Dutch, Belgians and scandanavians.

It will be held in Mid September. Date to be confirmed to avoid GD UK.

The Tournament will be held over 2 days, including 5 original and challanging scenarios. Festivities start Friday evening with food, Drink and the possability to play a game or 2 Friday evening.

Points value will be 3000 points maximum. 1 and only 1 Force organisation schema.
2 troops and 1 HQ obligatary.
At least 1 piece of Forge World is an obligation. Does nt matter how big or small it is !
Each super heavy class vehicle will take up one heavy FOS. There fore possibility to take 3 Thunderhawks !!

I'm afraid my French is quite rusty, would I be able to get by mostly with English?

This certainly sounds interesting, so I will keep an eye on this thread for future devolopments. :)
