    ZEKE got a reaction from barca in ENFILADE 2020 v4 Late-War Flames of War Tournament (Official Thread)   
    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..

    ZEKE got a reaction from phyfor88 in Clarification in Missions, V4 LateWar rulebook   
    Going through the NEW V4 Flames of War Rulebook they rolled out with the Late War (copyright 2019 inside the cover), I was looking at the missions and spotted some clarification.  Look at the missions and at the bottom WINNING THE GAME (ex.FREE FOR ALL, p106) "A player wins if they END THEIR TURN Holding one of the Objectives that they placed on the opponent's side of the table".
    Now turn to p102
    HOLDING OBJECTIVES
    You are Holding an Objective if you START you turn with a Tank, Infantry, or Gun team within 4" of an Objective, and end it with no opposing Tank, Infantry, or Gun teams within 4" of that Objective. (so now this concept is official and no longer derived from the MORE MISSIONS pdf posted on the webpage)
    Objectives cannot be Held by Tank Teams that are Bailed Out, Aircraft, Transports, or Independent Teams. Nor can these teams prevent the enemy from Holding an Objective. (pay attention to the key words at the top of the unit cards)
    Teams that Moved at Dash speed cannot take an Objective nor prevent the enemy from taking it. (that's now "too little too late" so no racing over to keep the game from ending)

    I went through page by page comparing the new LW copyright 2019 rule book to the original MW rulebook looking for changes. Here is what I found.
    1. Main body of rules are still intact.
    2. country specific special rules were updated to include Americans and Russians, to add LW specific special rules and take out MW only special rules.
    the biggest changes are in the Missions area
    3. NEW definition of HOLDING OBJECTIVE
    4. NEW method of determining winner for each Mission
    5. Chart added for determining who is attacker and what mission to use (all based on each players choice of attack, mobile, defend preferences).

    So this is how it is formatted now, interesting. In past V2 & V3, I Think the Normandy german platoons were modeled with with 6xMG teams, then choose either Cmd Knacker or Cmd Faust team.  I wouldn't be surprised come bagration that the LIMITED 1 rule would be taken out.

    Excellent event. Had a lot of fun and great group of participants.  I am still trying to figure out how I won, yeah I know Stuart swarm, but my first look at those Stuart's being hit on 2+ really had my doubts but I figured it would be fun destroying lots of tanks. Chalk it up to "sun shines on a dog's ass every now and then".  Thanks everyone.

    ZEKE got a reaction from phyfor88 in Mid vs Late FoW?   
    From the tankers point of view, this is generally how the different periods  go.
    Early War - lots of BAILED out tanks due to weapons systems having a higher firepower.  Because of the lots of bailed out tanks on the table, Instead of being outright killed, most tanks seem to be sitting in the penalty box (bailed) for a while then get back in the game.
    Mid War - probably the most balanced of all the periods
    Late War - lots of insta-kills.  With the higher AT numbers and the Lower firepower, things go poof more easily.
     
    TEAM YANKEE - insane amounts of insta-kills.  "I WAS winning ... and then I lost 5 tanks."
     
    As for the new V4 rules,  this new MidWar stuff is born out of the V4 system, while Late War is currently using conversion rules.  So, V4 will feel kinda glitchy.

    I can do 97 pts for team yankee, which I am bringing, and I am interested in the new V4 midwar stuff.  I only have a few german tanks so essentially I don't have stuff. I have been thinking of asking Boss if I can borrow some of his brit stuff so I can learn, till then I wouldn't mind if anybody has stuff I can push around. I want to learn this new V4 midwar stuff since I keep seeing new people playing it and they are enjoying it.

    ZEKE got a reaction from taran.shannara in Team Yankee - your old paint sets are NOT obsolete   
    The main thing I noticed with the Team Yankee paints and Colors of War paints is that they use the same serial number even though they sometimes change the name, example:
     
    TYP341 NATO Green = FWP341 Tankovy Green
     
    So then, I just had to find the colors of war conversion charts to vallejo

    I noticed that I forgot to put the start time.  It is the usual 11:00 am start time.  I will show up around 10:00 to start setting up tables.
     
    Being that this is all vehicles, games should go quickly.  I am allowing about 1-1/2 hours for each session which can be shortened if all games are done quickly.  I am planning on a 45min lunch break between games 1 & 2 and about 20 minutes between games 2 & 3 unless everybody wants to jump straight to the last game.
     
    Again this is an event more than it is a competition. Prizes are small but numerous.  I did put in some of time & skill and painted up some of the prize stuff to help make it better,

    Only a month to go. Haven't heard many peeps chiming in so I'll lax on the lists. You DON'T have to include a special character/warrior team. But if you do, I'll add 3 pts to your painting score. If you don't have a warrior/character then your HQ element will be used for paint judging.

    WHAT: TANKSGIVING at Guardian Games

    Painting requirement:

    Best painted special character gets second pick.
    Fan favorite gets third pick.
