  1. Does anybody play mid-war?

    last i heard was the Italians will be the next ones to come out for Mid-War. But that was months ago and I don't know if it's still on schedule.
  2. Sure you can come. I plan on accommodating everybody.
  3. I am showing up with 120 pts West German.
  4. Thats cool. Bring it anyway in case there are more recruits than veterans I have some ideas about how to run this.
  5. SCHEDULE 10:00 AM - Store Opens 10:05 AM - 10:30 AM = Terrain Setup 10:30 AM - 10:50 AM = Registration 10:50 AM - 11:00 AM = Instructions, Assignments and Missions 11:00 AM – 1:30 PM = ROUND 1, 1:40 - 2:40 = Lunch break and “PASS-IN-REVIEW”: Judging of painting and modeling 2:40 PM – 5:10 PM = ROUND 2, 5:10 PM – 5:25 PM = Short break 5:25 PM - 7:55 PM = ROUND 3, 7:55 PM - 8:10 PM = Tally results 8:10 PM - 8:30 PM = Award prizes 8:30 PM - 9:00 PM = Put away terrain
  6. It's now just 9 days away. Get your stuff together! Don't be afraid to bring extra stuff. If all you have is just a little bit, bring that too we can put stuff together. Don't forget this is at Oregon City Geeks and Games Saturday 18th. That's the next Saturday after this weekend. If you have terrain for a table let me know or just bring it. I have 5 tables reserved and would need help with at least 2 of them. I can't wait to see everybody playing different armies and having fun. And yes my paint brushes have been working again this year for my 2nd annual tanksgiving.
  7. 1. I can extend the invite to a few of the regulars I've been gaming with at OCGG. 2. Ordering Pizza seems like the easiest option, peeps may be sick of cooking dishes after the holidays. 3. I like the idea of renting the upstairs area above critical sip. 4. So...No on the speedos and rain boots ? 5. your dec 30th option sounds excellent 6. "Xmas in the Trenches" ?? 7. I cant think of anything specific 8. Heck ya count me in
  8. That is a really awesome idea. I'm up for it. Would be more than happy to sponsor Wings of Glory if there is enough interest. I would be up for the pizza thing, get an order together after most peeps show up in the morning.
  9. Fighting first has changed V4

    So I've been playing a Stuart company this past month. Crazy hunh. Yeah they get hit on 2+ but I've stumbled upon a playstyle for them. I take a full company of stuarts ( 2,5,5,5 - hq & 3 platoons) plus the recon to help the stuarts creep closer, plus the T30 AssaultGuns (new improved armored mortars for only 1 pt more). So thats 5 platoons and HQ that count for formation status. Then add in 2 platoons of M10s. 3 & 3 for 100 pt games, 4 & 4 for higher point games. Those things are beasts with AT12 and 36" range. I pretty much cluster the stuarts together and shove them into the enemy as fast as possible and use the M10s 36" range as cover fire. Opponent is then faced with a decision, deal with the horde of easy to hit thin skinned stuarts or deal with the M10s blasting from a distance. I'm not saying this is an unstoppable army or its the best. I just didn't think there was a chance for those stuarts that are hit on 2+. I have won more games with them than I've lost but the wins are almost always 6-3, no 8-1 wins yet. But I did find a way to play them and it's actually fun and I'm getting into it. I wonder if DVANG is still around & playing, I remember him playing stuarts & M10s back in Version 2. He would love this list.

  12. Looking for some Bitz

    checked my stuff...Sorry, don't have those pieces anymore.
  13. Having served in the 82nd Airborne 89-92, I am interested in seeing what the list options look like. M551 Sheridans, 3/73 armor battalion, are a must. The VADS, 3/4 ADA, I saw were trailer mounted. Lots of turtle shell HMMWVs. I did see the 1/17th CAV running around with LAVs but can't remember if that was just before or jsut after Desert Storm, so either 1990 or 1991. After Desert Storm, I did see a HMMWV with an operator capsule mounted on back that had stinger missle pods attaced to the sides. The artillery were more like the old pack guns but were towed by HMMWVs, the bigger 155s were 18th Airborne Corps arty (their motorpool was in front of ours so I saw them every day) and were pulled by 5-ton trucks. A10s and C130 spectres were always at our disposal since those units were also at Pope Airforce Base (next to Ft Bragg), and the 82nd trained with them all the time. 82nd Aviation Brigade was Apaches, Blackhawks, and chinooks.
