  5. ZEKE, plz post start and end time so people can plan their schedules.
  6. I will be at GG tonight, THU, 11/9 between 6 and 6:30. Have 120 pts Team Yankee soviets. Gearing up for Tanksgiving event on 11/18: http://www.ordofanaticus.com/topic/208636-tanksgiving-teamyankee-event-oregoncitygeeksgames-nov-18/ That format includes a new player using 50 points of soviet in a doubles battle. So, someone could be my assistant in whomping some NATO butt! Also will bring FoW Mid-War north Africa Germans
  7. Having an event to focus on would be a good incentive for reading thru the book (rather than just skimming it), and trying out something concrete in LW.
  8. SHORT ANSWER: BOTH possible, but use either the 3rd ed handbooks, or "The Armies Of Late-War" book LONG ANSWER: See https://www.flamesofwar.com/hobby.aspx?art_id=5824 "The Armies Of Late-War book and card packs will help you keep playing your existing V3 Late-War armies with the new V4 Rulebook. The points are all comparable to existing V3 army books but the stats and lists have all be updated to the V4 rules." After scanning "Flames of War 1939-41 and 1944-45 rulebook" ("transition book #1"), it looks like all the Late-War Handbooks are supported. See p. 9 of the rule book mentioned above. You can also use the "Special Rules and Warriors" book ("transition book #2"). For those people who never received these softcover books, the online version of "Special Rules..." is at "4th Edition Useful Downloads" at https://www.flamesofwar.com/Default.aspx?tabid=966 There are also unofficial proposed changes: https://www.flamesofwar.com/Portals/0/Documents/RulesUpdateSep2017/RulesUpdateSeptember2017.pdf For v3 handbooks, your rulebooks are "transition books": "Flames of War 1939-41 and 1944-45" rulebook "Special Rules and Warriors" Did not see a PDF download link for this book: "Flames of War 1939-41 and 1944-45 rulebook" If someone has a working link, plz comment. Some used copies sold at Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Miniatures-Special-Warriors-1939-41-1944-45/dp/0987668978 Or try free from battlefront (if u have the v3 rulebook): https://www.flamesofwar.com/hobby.aspx?art_id=5450 If you buy a Late War box set, then it comes with a " Flames Of War Mini Rulebook " https://www.flamesofwar.com/hobby.aspx?art_id=5824
  9. Depending on when the "Armies Of Late-War" book arrives, we will be putting together a late-war Flames-of-War event. I am considering the date to be in mid-December or early January. This can be at either GG or OCGG. My suggestion is a 4-6 player event with a quasi historical scenario: perhaps a compressed version of the battle/campaign that led to US-USSR linkup in the Elbe River in April of 1945. Any thoughts? Any takers?
  10. If you have 1-3 games you would like to host, list them here ASAP, so invites guests can read up on the games, watch game-related videos, etc. If you have links to useful play-thru's and reviews, also post them here.
  11. What era do most people play?

    BTW, the late war starter boxes are a good deal, and have a decent mix of models.
  12. What era do most people play?

    For those of you who are more excited about LW than MW, look here: Armies Of Late-War Pre-order https://www.flamesofwar.com/hobby.aspx?art_id=5824 Our PDX group will have a Flames-of-War LATE war event in DEC or JAN, depending on interest. It needs to be at least a couple of weeks AFTER the arrival of the Late War force book, so people can decide on army lists and dust off their forces in storage.
  13. What era do most people play?

    Some late war cards and a book being released soon, but until we try it out, i would not reccommend starting there, for now. Mid-war is fun. Looking into 2018 Battlefront releases, many North Africa German and British Armor models will still be usable on the Mid-War Eastern Front. British and US sent lend-lease tanks to Russians, including Valentines, Matildas, Stuarts, Lees/Grants
  14. What era do most people play?

    In the Portland and Oregon City area, we are focusing on Mid-War, North Africa, version4. Local meta: British Crusader spam wins often against German Armor US Armor only played a little against Ger Armor. German Infantry lists fare well against US and UK. Mixed list overall works reliably, when handled well. Not seen US inf much yet around here. Check us out at Guardian Games on THU evening and Oregon City Geeks and Games on TUE eve's. We also do some Saturdays at Guardian Games (a.k.a. "GG").
