Just a heads up that the next game day is Cauldron at Atomic Empire in Durham
Saturday May 14th
Start time for the games will be 12 pm.
Same format as before – two games start at noon and two games start at 3-ish.
Use the Yahoo Mailing List (linked at top of our website) to communicate with the admin of Cauldron, Bruce Schaper.
We have re-linked and upgraded everything on the Southern Front 2016 page. Feel free to go ahead and pre-register and or submit games for the event when you wish. We also have supplied a coded web link titled Reserve Hotel Room which includes the “TSS” special rate code to reserve rooms for the event. You can of course also just call the hotel and mention that special group code of “TSS”. We have the hotel number on the Southern Front 2016 page banner as well as in the text of the page. If you run into any issues, please get in touch with the webmaster via the email address murdockpeter AT gmail DOT com. Alternatively, if you still get no response, ask via the TSS Yahoo Group. – Thanks, Peter Robbins (Webmaster)
Southern Front 2016 is a go! Below is a newer banner image for the event which I have additionally added to the Southern Front site proper. I’ve NOT yet activated the registration links as I still need to update a few things behind the scenes but those should be active witihin a few weeks. I’ll post news here and on the TSS Yahoo list when the links are all active. This is the same hotel from last year, it just goes by a slightly updated name now. It is now known as Holiday Inn Raleigh North – Midtown and its address is 2805 Highwoods Boulevard Raleigh, NC 27604.
A Quick note from Bruce regarding Cold Steel 2016 game day –
We have two tables reserved for us on Saturday February 13 at GAME THEORY. The venue in Cary didn’t work out this time, he’s got a lot of stuff scheduled. Same format as the other game days.
Two games start at 12 pm.
Two games start at 400 pm
Amazingly, this will be our THIRD year for Cold Steel.
For GM’s thinking about putting something on: Table size is not a problem 6×8 footers.
The time is a bit of concern, so structure your game, so you don’t have to drag out your entire horde.
this makes set up and put up efficient.
Three hours of play time has been working out good. Players are still fresh for the second round.
The date is actually advantageous this year too. It’s a no brainer what to ask for Valentines -go play a game.”
Get in touch via the Yahoo Group or directly to Bruce Schaper’s email which you can also obtain via the Yahoo Group. And if you have no idea how to get to the Yahoo message group, click on the Yahoo Mailing List tab at the top of this website.
War Of 1812 – What If Scenario, GM’d by Ron Oldham (Southern Front 2015)
I for one loved the event this year. I thought everyone really brought their A games GM wise across the board. I’ve placed a few photos of various games I was able to jump over to and photo over on the G+ Historical Miniatures community, which I do urge you to join. G+ is a great social media tool.
The main G+ Historical Miniatures community is over here too, many nice folks post over there –
Enjoy what limited photos I was able to muster. IF you have any photo gallery links of your own that you’d like to submit for linkage here, let me know via murdockpeter AT gmail DOT com. We absolutely hope to put on a similar Southern Front 2016 and once that information becomes available to me as webmaster I’ll post it. I’m sure we’ll post in the yahoo news group as well as here on site when that information becomes available.
The final PEL and Table Layouts have been posted to the SF 2015 main page.
Here is the Final PEL and here is the Final Table Layout. Any other edits or additions or deletions will be made at the event.
Per Peter Hume the Game Scheduler “Final listing. There is room for a game or two on Friday Afternoon or Sunday..but otherwise sold out.”
If you have any issues with what you see, please send an email to Peter Hume at peterhume3562 AT gmail DOT com
Many Thanks to Bruce Schaper for putting together a nice game day at Game Theory of Raleigh. And thanks to the GMs that took part.
The PEL has been uploaded again HERE.
The Table Layout has also been updated over HERE.
We look forward to this year’s event! We’ll post again when the PEL and Table Layouts are updated again.
Just a quick heads up that the PEL and Table Layout files on the Southern Front site have been updated. Click on the Southern Front tab at the top of the site to get to the convention’s main page. The PEL and Table Layout are linked in a table on that page.
UPDATED PEL and UPDATED TABLE LAYOUT
Also, here is a note from the game Scheduler Peter Hume –
” Southern Front is weeks away now, and the schedule of games is filling out nicely. There are multiple people who have said they wanted to run a game and i’m waiting on their submissions (nudge, cajole, prod, smile). There is still space available. Friday afternoon and Sunday are WIDE open. Other times there is still availability..especially as a few of the GMs have said they would move to another day or time to accommodate. So hurry up and send in your submissions.
The Eighteenth Century on is pretty well covered (apart from British Colonial…can never have too much of that pip pip, and Naval). A bit of a gap before that point…if anyone fancied running an earlier period…would add to the diversity.
GMs who have already submitted a game, please check the PEL to make sure your game is listed and is accurate. If there is an error please send an email back to me at peterhume3562 AT gmail DOT com so I can correct.”
