World Cup of Historical Wargames Miniature Manufacturers
« on: June 19, 2024, 03:50:49 PM »
After the fun I had last year running a World Cup of Wargames Rules I have done the same thing this year but with Historical Wargames Miniature Manufacturers.

I have had to run the competition on Facebook again as I haven't found an alternative, so apologies if you aren't on that social media.

The voting for the Preliminary Round is open now on The Yarkshire Gamers Reet Big Wargames Group  look below

https://www.facebook.com/share/yoxKvxM5pyZtR5Kv/

Vote for your top 5, poll open until Sunday.

Entrance is for any Wargames Manufacturer past or present, trading or not and has a Historical range of figures.

Note this is for Manufacturers not ranges, so you can vote for a company but not for their Napoleonic Range and there Medieval Range etc.

We've had 4,500 votes and 144 companies nominated so far.

Top 16 qualify for Round 1, there are 8 seeds who will enter the competition in Rd 2, they are Perrys, Foundry, Skytrex, Elite, Peter Pig, AB, Heroics and Ros, Minifigs.

Enjoy
