    So here are a couple of favorites I put together there. I wanted to do something light and mobile with some firepower for backup. I’d love to hear your thoughts guys.

    Press the “View/Print OOB” button. When you get to the new screen, go into options and select “Freeze List”. Once you’ve done that you can select “Link to this list”.

    Is there a way to post or link you guys to a list I put together on Easy Army? I’d love to get some opinions before I buy/field this!

    I have three of the smaller rulebooks…. the one I have I had spiral bound before I even read it…. more portable… lays flat on the table…. if you get another one, I recommend getting it spiral bound…. you’ll appreciate it. Below I’ve listed the maximum HQ & Combat Platoons for the Beute StuG Batterie [...]

    I actually went back to my LFGS and exchanged it for a big one, with the price of the mini book. It’s pretty unfortunate that the mini book is so poorly built as it’s otherwise such a quality product.

    That is unfortunately a recurring issues with many of their books. Most people I’ve talked to advice getting the small rulebook and having it spiral bound. Personally, I’m on my third mini-rulebook. And that too is falling apart… :-( You could always try to contact their customer support. They’re usually quite willing to offer replacements [...]

    So I got my FoW rulebook last night (!) and it has been falling apart straight upon opening it with pages even coming out. Did this happen to anyone else? Is it just a poorly bound book or should I return/exchange this one?

    They’re tricky…. big guns, weak armour, mechanically unreliable (though the Germans have rules to mitigate this)…. point-wise and price wise, not a big investment… you can throw some Tigers in the mix… They’re tiny but impressive models….

    A Beutepanzer army? Cool… :-)

    How does it play? I’ve been thinking of doing one of the Beutepanzer companies from the D-Day compilation but the French tanks just seem underwhelming to me. How do they hold op against Allied firepower?

    I’m transient at the moment….. touring the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area with the missus….. warworksdk and I appear to awkwardly agree on the topics…… My small German force is from the 21st Panzer Division; many of its vehicles were French vehicles, captured early in the war, and later modified and re-purposed; this makes the unit fairly [...]

    Each army has it’s own flavour, Not the least because of the national rules that goes along with the armies. Germany, in general, has tons of elite infantry and tanks (for most of the war anyway). The armies are small, well lead, and generally highly mobile with lots of armoured vehicles. In addition, they have [...]

    Another question I had, but forgot to ask before…Is there a significantly different “feel” to the factions involved? Is one group definitely better at certain things than others?

  • atayos posted on the forum topic Ultra new, could use some advice. in the group Avatar Flames of War:   4 days, 2 hours ago · View

    Oh, I was just going to use BF stuff, but that is still very good advice. Thank you!

    Hi @atayos Just like to make a point here about making use of of PSC and other companies I’m all up for using minis from all sorts of companies when putting a force together but you do have to be careful that they sit well with figures and vehicles from other companies that you intend to [...]

    @atayos said: Lol. Ollie…I’m gonna make it worse on you by pointing to easyarmy.com I just whipped together a 2ID list from there.

    Yeah I use it for my Bolt Action lists And I’m with you on the finding players issue – both my local clubs are very 40k-centric, is proving hard enough to get them to [...]

  • atayos posted on the forum topic Ultra new, could use some advice. in the group Avatar Flames of War:   4 days, 14 hours ago · View

    Oh. I may have trouble finding one of those. All my local stores seem to turn more to 40K rather than FoW

    Ditto for the Plastic Soldier Company. They make some good stuff. However, the selection is still somewhat limited compared to Battlefront.

    @atayos, FLGS means Local Friendly Gaming Store.

    What is the LFGS? Sorry, I am new to wargames. Not just FoW.
