Discussion about everything Flames of War related, including modelling, painting, collecting, fluff, cheese and historical facts!
I love doing a bit of research either for building units in my armies or just to get a feel for the conflict I want to game. I presume it suffered the fate of many German tanks lack of replacement parts. They may have copied the sloping front of the T34 when designing the panther [...]
And there it is… I read that Peiper started the campaign in a Panther (n° 001) and shortly after relocated to a halftrack (Panther apparently mamfuntioned)…
So he actually did ride a Panther for a while
Hi Guys, A couple of months back I set myself the challenge of making a terrain board I could use for both 15mm games, and for 28mm. this was for space & money reasons. My normal terrain I use seemed to suit both scales, so I thought I would give it a shot. I’ve blogged [...]
There are lists that have things that take Skill tests like Vets… I think Guards can do that and also some arty can range in like Vets too but I think it might be the Hero army lists that do the above
Gah! What do the poor Ruskies have to do to get Vets (and become a viable tournament choice!?)
I think the German defenders in mid 1945 would certainly claim the Soviet Guards divisions were a cut above the standard trained troops!
Welcome to Flames of War! Soviets are making a definite comeback, both with cheaper options in the revised Red Bear and Desperate Measures; surely the Soviets must count as Veterans by that point in the war, which will put you on a par with other Allied and German forces; with T34/85′s to boot! Most importantly, [...]
As @lafayette states the new code for Red Bear is FW117. The back of the book will also have revised edition and an ISBN of 978-0-9922555-4-1 http://www.flamesofwar.com/hobby.aspx?art_id=4182 Desperate Measures is also out this month, which will have Soviet and German lists in it (there’s a copy in the bottom left hand side of the screen during [...]
there is this army list creator which i use and it is free: http://fowlists.blogspot.com.au/p/welcome.html As for russian lists, I hear some infantry lists can be very versatile but don’t have experience myself. As for Red Bear, I read there should be a mention on the back that it is the revised edition, but I’m not [...]
FW 117 is the new code for the new book.
Easy army is okay if you want to spend money there are free list builders out there that you don’t pay for and are really good, I don’t use easyarmy because why pay for things like that.
Thank you, suffer the same difficulties that you do. Now, I’m looking at two copies of red bear, but don’t know which is the new one, it doesn’t say in the description. Any defining features between the two? And I’ll look into those lists, thanks.
