Excellent! It's arrived! And I might actually be able to take part this year. Great bonus rounds as well - a nice focus to all three, but they are still open to (what I know will be) interesting interpretation. Time to get the brushes out!

Yes, we picked the themes for the bonus rounds this time to be suitably generic whether you're into historical, fantasy or sci-fi  :)

Excellent idea, Captain Blood. I think it's going to make for some fascinating bonus rounds, with a huge variety of miniatures.

That's of course great! But where is light, there's also shadow ... As Hawkeye mentioned, the bonus rounds are open for wide interpretations, for example:

Animals: apes are allowed, so are armed apes? Like in "Planet of the apes"? Or only unarmed animals? A "team" of 5 sheep with 5 handlers count for 15 extra points?

Anyway, a new league is coming and I'm very excited about all the fantastic entries showing up. And yes, as it looks now, I could participate ...  8)

I think I will be in again this year, try to improve on last year's standing. Hats off to the mods and organisers for doing this, it's a lot of work and they deserve credit for their efforts.

Excellent news Michael. I'm looking forward to seeing your creations already :)

As far as interpretations of 'animals' are concerned - well, apes are definitely animals, so they would be allowed, armed or not. (I must admit, I was thinking more of wild animals, farm animals, domestic animals and fantasy / sci-fi animal-like creatures. But interpretation of the theme is part of the fun, so I think it's okay to push the boundaries a little bit :))

If anyone is thinking of using particular figures or models for round 5, and is any doubt as to whether they will qualify for bonus points as 'animals', please pm me. I will consult with the Prof and we will agree a ruling.

Obviously the easiest thing though, is just to stick to animals which are very obviously animals :)

Thanks Nord. It will be great to have you in the league again. (I'm imagining lots more troops for Lion Rampant ;))

This time round, I will be receiving the entries and organising and setting up the matches; the Prof will be managing the scoring and leaderboard. Hopefully, sharing the workload a bit, we'll both be able to take part too.

So if I do five Elephants do I have to do five Tarzans for the bonus?  ;)

You're never going to let me forget that, are you?  ;)

Yes, you'd need 5 elephant drivers, herders, dung-collectors or zoo keepers for the extra bonus  :)

As long as they fit together plausibly, that's fine.

Looking forward to the new league - enjoyed last years immensely and my wife even approves

Re thinking some of my plans now know the bonus rounds - If I move female character from one grouping then what do I put with her and is there a big thing I can add

Great fun :)

Taxonomically speaking, humans are animals.  ;)
