Flames of War Minis League - second half of 2019


Recommended Posts

This thread should replace "Flames of War Minis League at GG Thursdays 2019"

PROPOSED THEMES FOR THE SECOND HALF OF 2019

In anticipation of the often asked question "What are we playing?" we are proposing a set of default themes for our Battlefront tabletop miniatures games.
We now have 4 rule sets, 5 periods, 5 theatres and lots of terrain types to choose from.
If two or more people want to setup something specific, that is not the "current theme", feel free to do so on this thread.
If nothing is specified for a place and time, then expect gamers will show up with the current theme of rules, forces and terrain.

We are proposing that we use a schedule of themes for every two weeks, so that people know:

  • what lists to draw up
  • which forces to bring, and
  • what terrain to bring or setup.

We are encouraging Veteran gamers to bring matched sets of armies -- when they can -- to help "jump start" new players.

We put rule sets, periods, theatres and terrain in rotation, to offer a bit of everything, while also having an emphasis on Late-War, Western Front (themed D-Day/Normandy) marked by "%"
Schedule of Themes

December 16-31   -- Player’s choice, TBD

Points levels:

  • Battlefront has changed their points for the next tournament season - Tournament Points Suggestions , so we are using: 80 & 100/110
  • Casual match-ups including NEW players: 80 points
  • Casual match-ups between VETERAN players:
  1. Mid-war     105 + 5 points as Command Cards only
  2. Late-war     100 points
  • Special Events: Points TBD by the GM
  • Custom coordination between players: use whatever points you agree upon in advance.

Mission Selection:

  • I am proposing that gamers try out the “Battle Plan” method of choosing missions. It is likely that this will be the mission selection method for the next ENFILADE 2019 FoW Tournament.
  • Veteran gamers are also encouraged to try out the “Fog of War” mission cards.

Comments / suggestions are welcome, especially for December themes / events

NOTE: Mixed terrain includes a wide variety of the types that you would expected in Northern France (1940s) and West Germany (1980s)

Hello Gents, 

i don’t have any Flames Of War Minis. I would like to learn how to play and then pick up an army. I came by about a month ago and spoke to a few of you but could not return sooner because I have family visiting. Is there a way that you guys can fit me in for next Thursday?

Welcome back! Yes we would enjoy having a game/demo with you. What army are you interested in play?

THUR, AUG 8: Theme = LW D-Day American.

I might be arriving late - between 6:30 and 6:45

I am bringing

  • Fortress Europe - German Panzer List
  • Fortress Europe - German infantry company (HQ + 2 Gren PLTs) with some support
  • D-Day American - Veteran Sherman Tank Company .

Good game last night Gents. Tough going for those glider troops though. Dice luck must have all been used in landing safely.
