The Vul-Con Team is very proud to announce that Vul-Con 2012 will be the Host Site for Shifting Sands 2012 - Duel in the Desert, the annual Flames of War Tournament run by the Arizona Desert Rats. The event will take place at Vul-Con 2012 on February 25th and 26th, 2012 at the Phoenix Convention Center. Shifting Sands is one of the premier Flames of War Tournaments. Because of this we are both proud to be the host site and feel a great responsibility to work with the Arizona Desert Rats to make this the best Shifting Sands Tournament to date.
Shifting Sands 2012 - Duel in the Desert is a 2000pts desert doubles event covering Early war, Mid War and Raiding. The event will be played in five rounds (three Saturday and two Sunday). Air support will be decided by raiding missions. Day One will be Early War and all lists will be built from Hellfire and Back. Day Two will be Mid War and all lists will be built from North Africa along with modifications listed on the Shifting Sands Web Site. During the event, players will be pulled away from their partner to play raid missions which will influence the rest of the battles. All raiding and defending forces will be provided.
