  1. BTW, I drafted a new mission for larger table. Could be 2 or 3 -player. Could be FoW or Team Yankee. Will bring tonight to review and/or try out.
  2. OK. Bring Team Yankee Soviets and US, plus TY terrain Also bringing FoW Mid-War Eastern Front Germs and Rusk.
  3. Still looking for more zombie killers on SAT, NOV 17
  4. Added link to another video to the main post at http://www.ordofanaticus.com/topic/211171-axis-and-allies-and-zombies-nov-17-and-dec-8-at-gg-pdx/
  5. Another useful video: Harsh Rules: Learn to Play https://youtu.be/zUUCdLsEBiMBen Harsh talsk through gameplay for "Axis & Allies & Zombies"
  6. Any suggestions on how to get new players to try out Flames of War and/or Team Yankee? Incentives? Advertising? Visuals? Other ideas? Apparently, setting up cool terrain and models in the General Gaming Area at Guardian Games on Saturdays is not pulling people in. One of the missing elements is a second gamer to actually have a game ongoing. Usually I am just standing there by myself, with everything set to go... Or, maybe I'm not the right type to encourage people to try something new? Prizes? drawings? Freebies?
  7. Zombies will be shambling and biting on Saturday, NOV 17 at Guardian Games.

  11. Matilda Tanks in the Desert https://www.flamesofwar.com/Default.aspx?tabid=109&art_id=6125 The suggestion in the article seems like something worth trying: "Oddly, the one place that the Valentine could not compete with the Matilda was in the artillery support role. Whereas there was a Matilda CS (Close Support) version armed with a 3-inch howitzer, there was no Valentine equivalent. As a result, Valentine armoured squadrons initially had a pair of Matilda CS tanks in their HQ troop. If you want to model your Valentine Armoured Squadron this way, you can field an HQ of one Valentine II and two Matilda CS tanks (see the Matilda Armoured Squadron HQ card below for the Matilda CS data) for 20 points instead of the standard HQ." Download the pdf files for the cards in the article: https://www.flamesofwar.com/Default.aspx?tabid=109&art_id=6125 Matilda II (BR052) with CS option https://www.flamesofwar.com/hobby.aspx?art_id=1423 To order Matildas: https://www.flamesofwar.com/online_store.aspx?categoryid=2137&Country=GB https://www.thewarstore.com/Battlefront-Flames-of-War-Matilda-II-CS.html https://www.miniaturemarket.com/fow-br052.html Since the Matilda has top armor of 2, those of you concerned about infantry or Aircraft hitting your tanks, the Matilda is a cheaper option at 18 pts for three hulls vs 33 pts for 3x Churchills.
  12. For THU, NOV 15, although we should be doing desert, for this month I will change that to Eastern Front. Reason being is that although there are 5 Thursdays in November, Thursday, NOV 22 is Thanksgiving, and GG is closed for the Holiday. We already had 2 desert sessions this month, so for the remaining 2 Thursdays, NOV 15 and NOV 29, the terrain theme will be Eastern Front or Central Europe. Army theme: Either FoW Eastern Front or Team Yankee I will draft up 2 missions for NOV 15: one for 2 player and the second for 3-players.
  13. Outside of tournaments, our group is forgiving, not requiring exact model. proxy OK, esp if close (same airplane,mostly, just diff ordnance). Mostly we are Not requiring WYSIWYG Re: 1 plane -- I have old HS129 NIB. might consider sale or trade. I would rather have a matching pair - the new box
  14. Added lazarus to DEC 8 roster
  15. BTW, for those of you who were looking forward to Santa placing these goodies under your Christmas tree, I sympathize. However...There is a silver lining in this: Battlefront is paying close attention to QUALITY. RE: Enemy at the Gates Production Delays - https://www.flamesofwar.com/Default.aspx?tabid=53&art_id=6282 from the article: "Due to issues with moulding tools, the first run of flexible plastic Soviet Infantry were not up to our standards and so could not be shipped according to schedule. " "Our plastic Stalingrad buildings have also been delayed due to tooling issues and sizing inconsistencies. Initial test pieces revealed that the various parts of the buildings came out misaligned. Instead of coming together to build a perfectly fitted model of a Russian building they didn’t align accurately at all. The tools have been reset and adjusted after this initial run and production will resume in the next few weeks."
