The Campaign Begins!

79 Comments

We're also gathering up a number of different players to battle out the games for the campaign map run by Jim, also known as oriskany on the forums.

People are beginning to get set up for their first games and we'll be stopping in with them as the day continues.

I am intrigued to see how the Panzer IV’s fare against the Grants

And we’re off to a beautiful start ladies and gentleman.
Even though on this slightly rainy day we’ll see how well Monty and his crew will do against Rommel and his boys.

I prefer the afrika Korps palm tree to the rat

You would think with all the stuff in the desert to draw from they could come up with army symbols that were just a bit more scary than a tree and a rat. What would you guys have come up with if you were designing the Army symbols for the British 8th Army and the Afrika Corps??

Are there “generals” for each side?

We briefly considered it, @irontom – but didn’t want to start building “hierarchies” among the players. We wanted everyone to feel their battles were equally as important.

Besides, in all honestly, such a “general” wouldn’t get to play on the tabletop. Generals aren’ter supposed to command tactical forces, when you’re playing FoW you’re typically “roleplaying” as a lieutenant, captain, or major (perhaps lt. colonels for really big games)

I love the campaign map. What a great visual to get you immersed as a commander.

Shame they could not have got a couple of the FOW mats as I’m interested in one.

With such a long table, are you allowing games to spill over into each other for support?

@milkshake – We are talking about launching that kind of game on Sunday morning.

@stoney997 – The campaign map? Man, that’s a whole story in itself.

Or do you mean the map tables. Man, that’s ANOTHER whole story in itself. 😀

And now the fun begins, will history repeat itself or will a temporal paradox occur and change history books forever.
