    I am glad to have been a help. The 37mm mounted on the Command half track can normally deal with attached AT assets as they will normally shoot at your stugs. Dismount to deal with pioneers and engineers as every team has a tank assault of 4 or more. Just keep your half tracks back [...]

    Thank you for your excellent response, you have given me a lot to think about. I am starting to put together a panzergrenadier list and want to use a good number of half tracks. I think I will start by avoiding assaulting infantry that has any significant anti tank and use my half tracks to [...]

    What armies will you mostly be facing off against as like most other units you needs to adjust you tactics. Early, mid and late war periods plus the type of unit from the army list also has impact. Troop motivation and training can have a major impact.The other thing is that they will not win [...]

    They are nicely detail enough as to not stand out among any metal teams you may already have. These will best benefit infantry centric army lists as there lower monetary cost will allow you to fill up all your support unit options for your army list. That in turn will help to encourage high point [...]

    I have recently expanded my open fire box set with some German halftracks SdKfz 251/1. But I am struggling to understand how best to use them , especially when it comes to assaulting using the mounted assault special rule.

    Does anyone have any advice on how to get the most out of halftracks?

    Concerning organized rules for larger games Flames of War has its Total War rules which allow multiple players per side to have much bigger games. Also, every November many games stores hold a tanksgiving event where everyone brings all their tanks and fights it out. There are also doubles tournaments. Plus, there’s nothing preventing your [...]

    First of all welcome to the group. Now to answer your questions; fowftw is currently in it’s second season although the filming schedule and post production needs to work around both Dave’s and Warren’s schedules. There is nothing stopping you from forming teams to play larger games but each of the player’s would still have [...]

    Hi there. I am completely new on this Forum (because i registered just 2 minutes before, hehe) but i followed Flames of War For the Win with Warren and Dave on Youtube and i think this was a very great idea. And it had such potential to develop further. So my first question is: Is [...]

    Well, it’s really a big change in plans, but it really seems a lot better start this way. It’s mostly the Open Fire with a few adds. But I’ll build my armies for my own use on a second Project. Thanks a lot!

    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 [...]
