  2. The dice gods were biased so badly that Vegas casino bosses would have been jumping out of windows, had they been in charge of our table.. That being said, phyfor88 made some good points. It will take a lot of experimenting to find winning Russian lists and strategies. Being curious, persistent and loving the options in the Russian forces, I vow to keep experimenting. BTW< phyfor88 had some sneak peaks at the Flames of War LATE WAR points and forces. - - - Big changes are coming... <key ominous superhero music> вперед, в Берлин - "Forward, to Berlin"
  3. THUR, MAY 16: Mission = No Retreat, but we can play a different mission I will be at GG on THUR, MAY 9 with 90-pt list of Soviet Heroes, and a 90-point mixed German List. I will probably arrive between 6 & 6:30
  4. Not much infantry in the starter sets, but there are some Infantry Boxed sets, Mid-war: https://www.flamesofwar.com/Default.aspx?tabid=79&CategoryID=13694&PageIndex=4 https://www.flamesofwar.com/Default.aspx?tabid=79&CategoryID=13694&PageIndex=11 Infantry Blister packs, Mid-war: https://www.flamesofwar.com/online_store.aspx?CategoryID=13695Infantry
  5. BG, I sometimes get questions on who plays BoltAction and where do they play it. If you are interested in new players, then what should I say when some one asks: "Who?" "When?" "Where?"

  7. BTW, I had three infantry units and pushed one aggressively toward the objective #1. If I had used my second Armored car unit better I could have threatened the second objective.
  8. Two quick battles on THU, MAY 9th at GG. Both used HASTY ATTACK Mission. Both pitted US Fighting First Staurt hoard against Germam Africa Korps mixed force, with Tank formation. Both battles were quick victories for the Americans. The german tank formation list will probably not beat the stuart hoard, nor most things that are like it. The answer is Infantry formation with at least 2 antitank gun units, with 1 tank platoon to counterpunch and act as reserve. The Italian light tank hoard might operate similar to the stuart hoard. You have been warned.
  9. Check your ENFILADE registration. There was a problem with the online registrations. You should have gotten an email with instructions on how to check if you are still registered.

  11. I think that this mission - HASTY ATTACK - is a likely candidate mission for the tournament. It rewards flexible planning. The mission initially appears to favor the attacker. However, a skillful defender could make this mission work in their favor, if they plan ahead.
  12. THUR, MAY 9: Mission = Hasty Attack I will be at GG on THUR, MAY 9 with 90-pt list of Soviet Heroes, and a 90-point mixed German List. I will probably arrive between 6 & 6:30 If there are only 3 players, I can sit out the battle and use about 1/2 of table #2 to develop my playbook of tactics for ENFILADE.
  13. My Russian Heroes have been sharpening bayonets for MAY 11.
  14. FYI, in March, some guys at Borderlands Comics and Games put on a similar event See this link https://www.greenville.com/event/flames-of-war-firestorm-stalingrad/
