Discussion about everything Flames of War related, including modelling, painting, collecting, fluff, cheese and historical facts!
The Flames of War site (official) I find to be very very good – and has a great forum where rules questions etc are actually answered by the game designers. Perhaps this could be a reason to not having so many other groups – as they all go to the main one?
Only just saw this but what do you mean “seems almost non-existent”. If by this you mean the activity on generic forums which are mainly inhabited by GW players, then yes I’d agree. If you mean the main forum site (ie the company one at http://www.flamesofwar.com/Default.aspx?tabid=126) then you couldn’t be further from the truth. It’s [...]
the FoW boards of http://theminiaturespage.com/boards/topics.mv?id=263 are quite active too

Flames of war have an active forum that’s pretty big and What Would Patton Do (WWPD) also have a forum that’s pretty active. Locally we have a Swedish forum 15mm.se that covers tournaments and such in Sweden. So it might be that the discussion is active elsewhere.
I have been wondering this for a while now, and it has been a big surprise for me since I started playing Flames of War a few months ago. Other games I’ve played in the past (40k, Infinity, Malifaux) and even really small scale games I’ve played (DeepWars), all have very active forums with tons [...]
Are there going to be any more FoW FtW battle reports? I love them because they are long, and played fully; you can’t find that anywhere on interwebzorz. They are great: you can learn rules and flow of the games while not playing itself. (I love the specific rules bits you guys are doing too! [...]
