    The points are generally good enough to balance the forces. However, if you’re planing to use this to teach others how to play (not entirely clear from your post) then you also need to consider the composition of each side. Don’t, for example, go overboard with tanks on one side without giving the other side [...]

    There is a Company called Litko that makes FoW templates that are useable with Micro Armour…. so you should be able to use your stock to play FoW in Mini…….

    I like the look of your Panzers….. I tend to stray just a little from the historical,…. just enough to make mine recognizable from others…. I am cheered that you’ve chosen the 15th Scottish Division as your alternate…. I cut my teeth on the Scot’s Division PDF; the 15th being my choice of the two [...]

    Hello guys. I am beginning to delve into the world os Flames of War. I am used to play with 6mm WWII miniatures, but thanks to Warren and Dave FoW FtW I’m pretty sure I’ll retire my micro armour to play Flames of War. I’m making a shopping list to start playing. For that, I’ll [...]

    Well, your miniatures seem really beautifull. There is no doubt about the great job you’ve done there. I am starting to make the 2nd SS “Das Reich” either. No particular reason, but I liked their briefing in Atlantik Wall. If you don’t mind the question, what’s your troops list for this units? Have you take [...]

    1650 points was the goal. I originally made a CV version of this list, kinda. A lot of the elements are pretty much the same, but there is obviously fewer models. Here’s what it looked like, if you’re interested. Armored Rifle Company HQ (30) 2x Armored Rifle Platoon (295 each) Cavalry Recon Platoon (180) Corps [...]

    Whats the total number of points your looking to achieve? Knowing that can help in helping you. Also my rule of thumb, if I can, is go with CV armies. Makes things much better overall. No need in spending high points for FV bc if your rolling for morale your already in trouble.

    Thanks for the feedback. I was hoping that it would be flexible and able to handle pretty much anything without being too generic.

  • drowningharvey posted on the forum topic List-checkage. Help a brother out? in the group Avatar Flames of War:   2 weeks ago · View

    With even number of platoons, recon, artillery, very solid infantry and two mobile AT assets. I’d say it is a nice, well-rounded and flexible force.

    Hi! I’m an absolute noob, as you all know, and was wondering what you all thought of this List. It is made from Armoured Rifle Company (CT) from Overlord. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Armoured Rifle Company HQ (20) 2 x Armoured Rifle Platoon (250 each) Cavalry Recon Platoon (140) Corps Tank Destroyer Platoon [...]

    Thanks for the reply! Glad you like them! I’m indeed very aware that most vehicles do not (completely) match 2nd SS, most of these were speed painted to get them ready for a tournament. Besides that, they were also my first experiments with enamel washes, streaking grime, texture paint, oil paints, panel lining, dotting (with [...]

    I personally wouldn’t worry about the non-historical paint jobs at all. I was lauding his work, though I was looking at it from the fact that he said it was the 2nd SS, Das Reich. Because I am also a modeler, if it is the 2nd SS, then I think it should be painted to [...]

    From my own experience, the paint jobs haven’t been that big of a deal with any group I’ve played with. Effort for realism is naturally [...]

    We also do attack and defend scenarios where the attacker has 50% more points on the table because the defender starts not only emplaced but invisible. The defender’s units are made visible either by shooting, within range of a scout or infantry getting within close range. Also, for the attacker, any artillery pieces or AT [...]

    I agree!

    Its with the desert rats in mind that i said “most”.. I think apart from them and the red devils, screaming eagles and all american the rest of the allied at Normandy had little to non battle experience…

  • larbo posted on the forum topic House Rules in the group Avatar Flames of War:   3 weeks, 2 days ago · View

    Forgetting the Desert Rats.
    I really like their reluctant veteran status. Reflects good the war fatigue of the division and works well in list buildig.
