Chris Explains How To Introduce Your Friends To Flames Of War

48 Comments

John asks Chris a few questions about how he introduces people to Flames of War.

So you’ve got your new starter bundle. A Hit the Beach box set for you and a friend. You’ve read the rules and built both forces. But how do you go about taking your friends through their first game? Luckily Chris is on hand to showcase years of convention experience to get mucked in with your forces and start blowing things up on the table.

John talks to those adding the finest of details to their army for the weekend.

I generally end up playing German Infantry Heavy armies (though I have a liking for 10th Panzer in North Africa).

I love the look of version 4. I need to get involved with FOW and get some Americans to go play some games at my local shop.

Day 2 is the meat of the bootcamp – such a variety of stuff going on and loads of chat and laughter – the coverage really brings that across!

I love the new kits and how they are making getting started and increasing your forces so much easier. I miss the metal tanks, but in no way to I miss the metal soldiers. The new kits are so much easier to build and paint. Way to go Flames of War.
