  1. THE PLACE Location: 717 SE Main St. Portland OR 97214 (map) - Around the corner from Kokiyo Teriyaki and up the stairs. Cost to play games is $5 for Ordo Members, $2 for Ordo Warlord Champions, and FREE for Emperors! As always, your first Game Night is FREE! THE GAMES If you're looking to game we will be here. Opting to lay low? Stay home and stay safe, we'll catch you next time. THE MISSION Games we play: All, with a focus on Warhammer 40k, Bloodbowl, Necromunda, War Cry, board games and more. While it is possible to find a pickup game at Game Night, it is much better to pre-arrange a game before coming down. New players are always welcome, feel free to stop by and check it out. BUT WHAT ABOUT COVID-19? Due to the current Multnomah county mask mandate, all attendees must wear masks. Players are encouraged to spread out their games and avoid congestion. Do not attend game night if you experience any of the symptoms found here. GAME NIGHT EXPECTATIONS If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s taught us we don’t need more stress in our lives. As a result, Ordo is expecting an even greater level of friendliness and fellowship at Game Night than our normal high expectations. Please be aware that as always, the Czar has the ability to ask a player to leave if the Czar feels it necessary. Games are meant to be fun, so let’s have fun.

  10. Reading through this article: "V4: 12 Months, 8 Books and Counting" at https://flamesofwar.com/hobby.aspx?art_id=6014 ... ...I came across this sub-topic - "So What Does The Future Hold?" (scroll down in the same page listed above). Using that information and previous knowledge of Battlefront releases, I came up with my forecast of the coming releases: MAR - FoW - Avanti Releases MAR - TY - Stripes Releases MAR - Nam - 'Nam Releases APR - FoW - Armoured Fist Releases https://flamesofwar.com/online_store.aspx?CategoryID=9489 APR - TANKS - Avanti: M14/41 & Semovente http://tanks.gf9games.com/Home/tabid/56/entryid/207/Default.aspx APR - Nam - 'Nam Releases MAY - FoW - Armoured Fist Releases MAY - TANKS - Armoured Fist: Valentine & Sherman II JUN? - TY - Free Nations JUN - TANKS - Armoured Fist: Churchill III, Priest (UK) JUL? - TY - Free Nations AUG/SEP? - FoW - Iron Cross (Eastern Front) AUG/SEP? - FoW - Enemy At The Gates (Eastern Front) LATER: Battle of Kursk (2 Eastern Front books) Paratrooper book Release information also gleaned from: https://vietnam.team-yankee.com http://www.team-yankee.com http://tanks.gf9games.com
  11. Please comment and vote on these, and suggest your own ideas.. If anyone wants to get together and chat about these and other ideas in detail please suggest a time and place. TY Event #1: Team-Yankee: Cav, Recon and Forward Detachments. THEMES: Light to Medium Armor Forces. Home-brewed scenarios. SIZE: Points/size TBD, but maybe between 50 and 75 pts. SCHEDULE: FORMAT: This could be a mini-tournament or a special event with prize drawings. DESCRIPTION: Home-brewed scenarios will feature Reconnaissance/Mechanized Cav style missions and objectives. There will probably be limits or restrictions on having heavy armor in your force. Suggestions to refine this further are welcome. One idea is heaviest FA (Front Armor)=15. For example, “Medium” Second Generation tanks in TY are: T-55AM FA=14, M-60 Front Armor=15 Leo 1 FA=9. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_main_battle_tanks_by_generation TY Event #2: Team Yankee: Heliborne forces. THEMES: Helicopters and infantry delivered by helos. SIZE: Points size can be significantly less than 100. SCHEDULE: FORMAT: Probably a casual format: this event might be more experimental and less competitive. DESCRIPTION: Scenarios in which one faction or both have heliborne infantry in their force. Table size might be lengthened for this event (e.g. 4’ x 8’). We might want to limit the complexity as we experiment and get used to this new dimension. TY Event #3: Team Yankee: Quick Missions. THEMES: Small forces, quick battles. SIZE: 50-60 points SCHEDULE: Not tied to any release. FORMAT: Experimental. You can design your own scenario to use these missions. DESCRIPTION: RCDD has not tackled these missions, yet. Input from you is very welcome in fleshing out this event. TY Event #4: Team Yankee: Exploring the Free-Nations. THEMES: NATO Nations other than W.GE, UK, USA SIZE: Standard, 80-100 pts. SCHEDULE: Timing depends on the release date of the book, but probably 2-4 weeks after the release date. We might not wait for the actual models. FORMAT: Experimental, force building and proxy-model approach DESCRIPTION: This might be a proxy-model approach for us to try out various experimental new forces and formations that are in the yet-to-be published TY Forces book. We could also have a variant where traditional forces (before free-nations) have a new “free-nation” unit or more in their force. We might also have a second go after the models are released and people have had time to assemble and paint them. NOTE: We could repeat this event after some people have built up new armies or at least allied units from this new book. TY Event #5: Team Yankee: Mega-battle / Mini-Campaign THEMES: Covering force, Forward Detachment, heliborne forces, SIZE: 2-3 tables (4x6), or one very large table (5x12 or 6x12), if that can be arranged. 4-6+ players, 4-6 hours SCHEDULE: Depends on getting at least 4 dedicated Team Yankee gamers to commit to the same date. FORMAT: Casual. If we do not get to try out at least two of the scenarios before the big event, expect this event to become “experimental”: we might have some slow patches when we pause to sort out scenario questions/refinements. We could try out eqach scenario individually before we bundle them all together in a mega-battle. We could also play them out as a linear mini-campaign, over three different days. DESCRIPTION: We will play two or three battles from the Iron Maiden Scenarios. Battlefront article is on https://www.team-yankee.com/Default.aspx?tabid=908&art_id=5347. PDF download file is at https://flames-m58ip69dfg.netdna-ssl.com/portals/0/Documents/TeamYankee/Iron-Maiden-Scenarios.pdf If we have 4 players, then we will run these scenarios: "Covering Force" and "The Defence of Shellerten". If we have 6 or more players, then we will run the combined scenario “Call Sign Charlie.” TY Event #6: Team Yankee: Developing our next “Home-Brewed” Firestorm-like campaign(s). THEMES: Free Nations. Both formal Battlefront-approved forces and experimental forces that BF has not spec’d yet. SIZE: Campaign(s) with both flexible and fixed missions. SCHEDULE: After Free nations. There will be a schedule of several small events for everyone who wants to move this project forward. FORMAT: Experimental, force building and proxy-model approach. Experimental scenarios and scenario special rules. Home-made unit stats. DESCRIPTION: We might have either: 1) one campaign focused on infantry and light-to-medium armor, or 2) number one plus a second heavy forces campaign similar to the III (US) Corps counterattack in the NORTHAG area. For #1, we will include amphibious landings, Airborne forces, heliborne forces, special forces, territorials, etc. For #2, we can include whichever Free Nations anyone in the club is building as an army. TY Event #7: Team Yankee: “Way, way, out there…” THEMES: Bring Military fiction to the tabletop SCHEDULE: Requires a passionate, committed pair of individuals over a period of several months to make this a reality FORMAT: Experimental, force building and proxy-model approach. DESCRIPTION: This one is wide open. Pick a book or series you find riveting, and use the Team-Yankee rules and models to make it into a 3-D living story, where you can be the hero, or the villain.

  23. You will soon see announcements and instructions for the Rose City Dukes an Duchesses (RCDD) Monthly Mini-Campaigns for 2018. DESCRIPTION: These campaigns use the Team Yankee rules from Battlefront, and Flames of War, 4th ed. tabletop miniatures wargame rules Each month, we will run a 4-week campaign that is also a competitive league. There will be online rankings, battle reports and prizes. Many of the battles will be played out at Guardian Games (Portland) and Oregon City Geeks and Games. However, tabletop generals from farther afield can participate virtually, via the Ordofanaticus.com forum and our blog at https://rosecitydukes.wordpress.com There will also be an updated campaign map and narrative where you can follow the progress of the battling forces. AWARDS: We will have at least one individual award, for the most victory points won in battles during the month. Depending on the level of participation, we may also have team awards for the team that wins the most battles. Some of our prizes and awards will be assembled using the Battlefront Organized Play Kits. Other awards and prizes will be our own local creation and choice. PLANS: Initially, we will have Team Yankee campaigns during February and April. The theme is the Fulda Gap, in West Germany, circa 1985, covering the 3rd Armored Division and the 8th Guards Army. We may throw in Britsh, West Germans, East Germans, the US 11th ACR and the US 82nd Airbrone division. The February campaign is like the design for Battlefront Axis of Attack campaigns. We are exploring a larger Team Yankee campaign, which we are designing and will run locally. We intend to have a rich backstory, greater depth, and more "fluff", but that is not yet ready to roll out. On alternating months, we will run Flames of War (FoW) mini-campaigns. The first two FoW campaigns will be held in March and May. The theme for these campaigns is North Africa, Mid-War (November and December of 1942), in Tunisia, covering the American, British, German and Italian forces. If the campaigns are popular, then we will schedule more of them in the second half of 2018. Instructions and more details will follow in the Flames of War section of the OrdoFanaticus forum. The "Formal" announcements will have the topics "Team Yankee FEB Campaign - PDX" and "Flames of War MARCH Campaign - PDX"
  24. I will be at OCGG on SAT, JAN 27, from about 12-4 PM, looking for Team Yankee or Flames of War game. If interested, reply or just stop on by. I will be there at 12. If no replies and no shows by 1, I will be gone.
