  1. If anybody is thinking that this event is getting more strict, i.e. paint requirements, time limits etc., at Barca's December 28 meeting, we discussed the possibility of this event becoming a National Qualifier. Most likely not this year but this is something we can practice with and get more used to official tournament standards. Already we are pretty close to Battlefronts tournament format & requirements. Let's see if we can make this the Northwest's Official Sanctioned Battlefront National Qualifier. Then we can get more sponsors and more swag. In exchange, we have been and are trying to put on more "other" events like non-sanctioned tournys, megabattles, learn-to-play, etc..
  2. If any body is going to GG this thursday, I will be packing Flames-o-War LW americans & germans.
  3. Well... I have a box of Finns, guess I could wait for the Finnish books to come out. Might do a Desert Storm list of M1a1 abrams, Bradley's, and Apaches and head down to 73 Easting instead of hanging around An Nasiriyah with the Desert-Storm sickness chemicals. Other than that, I'll be waiting till Bulge series.
  4. I can give it a whirl. I've also come up with a Veteran Stuart list as well.
  5. cool, I too am bringing US tanks and German Stugs.
  6. I got some stuff together. Mostly a mix of different stuff. Basic Infantry formation with lots of mobile support.
  7. When I was looking at this last Thursday, the rule book was vague on the matter, but when I looked at the back of the us rifle platoon card the bazookas slow firing and pinned down is more defined. Battlefront always has the card over-rule the rulebook, but that doesn't mean it will be that way for all similar weapons. Nice to see someone got a response.
  8. I am out of town this week, but I can help you next Tuesday. Is there any particular type of formation? ie infantry, tank, light tank?
  9. I don't have a problem with the points level and time required. Late war tends to be more destructive (more kills than bails or pins) and I make sure that I get at least a half dozen practice games in to reduce time spent figuring stuff out or looking stuff up. Also, since there are time limits, it requires a different play style than just the casual weekend game and it's one of the reasons why I tend to run attack oriented lists so that I can do my best to come to quick enough decision as to who is winner.

    Tuesday gaming

    Sorry, didn't see post till way late. Will post something on Mondays, except next week I'll be out of town.
  11. I hope people are looking forward to this. I keep bumping into people at Oregon City Geeks Games that are interested as well as others elsewhere. This event is for players at all skill levels, beginners to experts. Even if you haven't played and are interested in checking it out or playing, there will be at least 3 tables setup with preset missions, game pieces, and instructors to help out. These tables are also available for experienced players to try their hands with a force they don't have and would like to try. This is not an organized tournament but rather an all day gaming event. You can play as little or as much as you can handle. I don't know how to do any fancy graphics so if anybody would like to post something on OCGeeksGames Facebook and/or OCGeeksGames players facebook page, it would be appreciated. Mission Tables: SteveZ will be coaching - New Airborne Mission on Flames of war website (D-Day American US Airborne vs D-Day German PzGrenadier (unarmored)) JamesB will be coaching - Beach Assault (US vs German) Nelson will be coaching - Caen (British Tank vs German Tank) Regular Tables: Could still use help on more tables/terrain. SteveZ - Desert table Jacob - Stalingrad table I have gathered up a door prize box and I have some good stuff that will be raffled throughout the day. Again there is a $5 charge for this event. If anybody else is interested in doing the same, I can bring FOW stuff for sale/trade, maybe set up a small "garage sale table" ???
  12. I don't get into the online campaign stuff, but I have no problem helping out those that do. If you need games, I'll see what I can do to accommodate.
  13. I was wondering the same thing. I would like some help with the new Airborne mission. I have stuff for both sides so you won't need to bring anything. I tried it last night and the germans were a little under-powered, so I made some changes and I would like to try the Germans so just need somebody to play the Airborne.
  14. Just saw on the Flames-of-War website some new D-DAY missions. I will be hosting the Airborne table and will give the "SEIZE AND HOLD" mission a try.
