MARCH 19th (Saturday) - 300 GAME 'The Battle of Thermopylae'

GAME DESCRIPTION:
Thermopylae was a narrow mountain pass, wide enough for one chariot, with cliffs on one side and the sea on the other. There in 480 BC, a small force led by King Leonidas of Sparta met an invading army of hundreds of thousands of soldiers. After 2-days of the lightly-armored invaders being slaughtered by the spear-wielding and heavily armored Greeks, treachery enabled the forces of Persia's emperor, Xeres, to outflank the Greeks guarding the pass. According to legend, Leonidas dismissed the bulk of his army and his remaining force of 300 Spartans and allies fought a suicidal holding action against the invaders. The battle ended up a costly victory for the Persians, sort of the Alamo of their invasion, giving the Greeks time, and inspiration, to regroup and defeat them later in the war. The example of the Spartans and their allies has lived on, inspiring military codes still alive today, as well as some of the best quotes in history, such as Leonidas' "Come take them," his reply to a Persian request to lay down his arms. Join us in this epic battle and re-enact ancient history with this brand-new format allowing authentic gladiator costume as well as ‘Shields’. That’s right ‘shields’ that help deflect hits and kills The SHIELD RULE'S: All 'shields' will be subject to fit through a ‘maximum size gauge’ before they will be allowed to be used in play.

Man, I wish HS didn't have the FPO policy, I hate paying 60$ a case after already having to pay 50 $ to get in, sucks on a limited budget lol, forces me to pick and choose scenarios D:. I'm not sure, been looking at it, bunch of guys at my field were talking about it. I'm probably gonna end up skipping this one and going to Day of the Rangers though, really don't have a marker I could use with a shield effectively lol. But I'll be sure to let you know if I come to help out the Spartans.

The new 'Formula 40' fieldpaint at HS is one grade down from the fireball Gustav12, but is only $40 a case. Unfortunately it doesn't come in winter fill like Fireball, so won't be used for the 300 game.

Oh, cool, good to hear for when DotR and Monster roll around, and lol Butch will be easy to spot, the nut with a whole cow strapped to his arm. I dunno, I'll see what I can do the shields do look like a ton of fun, maybe I'll find a way to one hand my magrifle rofl.

Edit: Oh sweet, 15$ pre-reg? I thought it was gonna be 50 like all the other games, I could probably swing this. I'll see if I can get a group from my local field to come, 15 and I split a case with my buddy, not too shabby.

So both teams can use shields? As far as the formula 40 goes, will it be allowed / available? The shell is pretty thick on that stuff.

As far as I know both teams can use shields but I will doublecheck. They're going to be more of an advantage for the defenders...

Some teams are starting to prereg spartan.

Formula 40 doesn't come in a winter fill, so it's all fireball for this event so far.

This scenario really fits well with the terrain and setup at HS. I wouldn't be surprised to see this become a yearly game. I know I'm stoked for it!

Alright, I'll light a fire under my buddies, try and get registered, do you think it'll be possible for defenders to play with limited paint, like a 50 round on my Mag Rifle, or is it going to get too intense for that? Paint's expensive lol, or am I going to need to bring my painthose?

EDIT: Two more MCB Spartans to add to the fight
