Discussion about everything Flames of War related, including modelling, painting, collecting, fluff, cheese and historical facts!
Personally I love the idea. I would do it like this myself normally but unfortunately none of my friends play Flames of War. The only thing I would say against it though is that sometimes you want to have a small battle with only a few teams, but then of course you can play at [...]
I think I’ve seen a battle report on the WWPD (What Would Patton Do) website where they used micro armour. I think it should work find and the ranges would feel a bit more realistic (10cm for a SMG team work better the smaller the scale is). I’ve had the idea myself but haven’t gotten [...]

I think I’m most interested in BGK now, but the issue is the rulebook is just too expensive. For that price, I could buy the rulebook and 1/72 starting forces for BA or the Open Fire boxed set for FoW (approximately). I heard a rumor about a smaller, less expensive rulebook being released in April–but [...]
