    You may well be correct, I have and play your guys rule systems and scale even got some of your fantastic minis etc. I have no rational for expressing what it is that has gotten to me about this theatre. I have several books covering it from both sides and have researched it in some [...]

    Hi CG, My post was not at all to meant to celebrate a near German victory but to simply remember a battle that was fought during WW2 that was taking place 71 years ago today. I feel that you have read too much into the post and taken a negative view on it rather than [...]

    Not being negative and please see the context it is meant in. I play world War 2 as you know and have argued for both sides of the same coin to try and strike a balance. However if I am reading this correctly. You are celebrating a German attack on allied forces who were if [...]

    On the 16th December 1944 the Germans launched a suprise attack on American forces in Belgium, France and Luxemberg. The battle raged until the 25th January 1945. To remember this campaign 71 years ago we would like to offer a special Christmas 15% discount on selected 1/72 and 15mm products which include the following: US [...]

    Thanks guys. You’ve given me a lot of info. I think I’m going to start with Open Fire and Ramsch’s Charge, so I can learn the game with small and medium sized forces, and then look at building towards a mechanized company when I have more experience.

    Cheers!

    You don’t need the hardcover rulebook. All rules are in the small “tournament sized” one from open fire. But the binding will die pretty quickly. After about 6 month I had to bind it myself. So now I have the selfbinded for the road and the big one on the shelf to flick through at [...]

    Flames of war is a game that you can add units as you like. However you must use the units in black boxes. The Gepanzerte panzer grenadiers are a good list to start with as long as you have enough halftracks. If you don’t have enough halftracks many FoW are ok with you proxying. I [...]

  • ajax1983 posted on the forum topic New to FoW in the group Avatar Flames of War:   2 months, 1 week ago · View

    Thanks for the replies guys. I’ve got somewhere to start now. FoW can be overwhelming when first looking at it, so I guess I’ll go for Open Fire and Ramsch’s Charge boxed sets, then go for there. I’ve looked at the faction books on the FoW website, and they don’t have the Fortress Europe book [...]

    hi there, fow is a great game with a lot of possibilities. I would recommend that you have a look at the fow website the thanksgiving sale is extended for one day and with the open fire starter box plus the german starter army you have a solid foundation to start with to a reasonable [...]

    Hi Ajax, yeah Open Fire is great. See to it that you get some good deal from a local dealer with the “Forces” book includes. Forces is a book with very basic forces for all the major nations. But basic is what you want to start with. Forget about aircraft and artillery for the start [...]

    Hello Ajax, First off welcome to the game and that it is always nice to have new players. I personally play Germans, and love then. If you are going the Open Fire route it is really fun I you can find a friend to get into the game with you. I didn’t start with the [...]

    Hi Phaidknott, Thanks for your reply. I had a look at the blog and it seems quite useful. I also have had a chance to look at the Fortress Europe rule book and found a German Mechanized Company list that really appealed to me (lots of halftracks, some tanks, some air support, and a bunch [...]

    Welcome…. If you are to start out with Germans for FoW you can’t go wrong with doing a basic “Heer” force (rather than buying elite armies. A basic groundpounder force will be a lot more forgiving if you make a mistake (and basic troops for any army can be used in multiple army lists. Here’s [...]
