    As a longtime collector of Battlefront models and books the arrival of Flames of War 4 naturally piqued my interest. I say collector because the FoW ruleset had become far too complex to teach to family members with no particular interest in WW2. On the other hand I have had a longstanding interest in WW2, [...]

    We played a really fun game of TY. I’m hooked and can’t wait for round 2. I posted the replay on my blog.

    Very nice. I have use a few PSC kits in building up my Panzer IV’s, if I am not mistaken.

    I’m amassing a chunky little British force despite not collecting British simply because I have a tendency to pick up your 15mm kits to have a tinker with…

    Wow, thanks very much, @highrack and @limburger . :D Always glad to hear when that kind of material is well-received, actually I’m often worried I’m laying it on a little thick. Enough of the dusty old history! Let’s chuck some dice! That kind of thing. :D I’ve done quite a bit of writing for the Desert War (not [...]

    That is very true, and I have. I currently have read over 165 books since 2010, 70 of which are on WW2/WWI and 9 of those were on desert warfare. Yes, I actually keep a log of what I read. So much information out there, it is great. But from a gaming perspective, having FoW [...]

    You could always go to a bookshop and buy a book out of the historical section about the campaign in the Western Desert

  • highrack posted on the forum topic FoW 4th Edition in the group Avatar Flames of War:   1 month, 1 week ago · View

    I too hope they do a nice fat book on Africa. I like how the previous books are filled with so much historical detail that you can learn from. The new rules do seem to allow for a faster paced game. I watched @oriskany ‘s videos from the weekend and am really excited to get [...]

    It’s a new setting to me so it is interesting. However compared to @oriskany ‘s series of articles about the desert war and the recent El Alamein series the background in the Afrika Korps book is a bit too basic. I kind of hope they’re doing a nice fat Africa themed book instead of the basic [...]

    Just purchased the FoW 4th El Alamein box set and the digital copies of Desert Rats and Afrika Korps. Who else is excited about the new release focus in the Desert?

    Ok
    Thanks for the quick reply.
    but does a 100 point army have the same, roughly, number of elements, or are armies now smaller.
    I have an old 1000 point 8th army box. What would that make up under the new rules ?

  • avernos posted on the forum topic Points system in the group Avatar Flames of War:   1 month, 1 week ago · View

    you don’t, the time periods have never been interchangeable, which is why tournaments and lists are split into early, mid or late war. It’s to prevent people bringing early war french and bouncing off late war german or russian. They may change late war points values in time when they reprint the books, but even [...]
