It is official. We have tables reserved at GG


Firestorm Overlord kicks off with D-Day!

...a "Flames of War" tabletop miniatures battle


This is a special event to celebrate the 71st Anniversary of D-Day, the beach assault in Normandy, France, on June 6, 1944.


Join us on Saturday, the 6th of June at Guardian Games,

as we re-fight the D-Day invasion of Normandy,

using Flames of War rules and 15mm miniatures.


All are welcome to play - veteran gamers and newcomers, alike.

We have the figures and the tables.

Just bring your enthusiasm, and together we will have a smashing good time.

This event is on the GG calendar: http://www.ggportland.com/calendar/


Start Time: 11 AM.


The D-Day battle:

This will be like the opening scenes in the movie "Saving Private Ryan"

We will be re-enacting (in miniature) the Normandy beach landing, as the Americans and British storm the beach, and the Germans put up a determined defense.


Flames of War Campaign "Firestorm: Overlord"

Our game on June 6 will also be the first battle in a series of engagements in the Campaign "Firestorm: Overlord".

In this campaign, American, British and Canadian tanks and infantry will battle through Normandy, while the Germans defend and counterattack.

Trying to generate some interest: both spectators and participants.

Sent out e-mail invitations to the contacts that I could find.

Posted more messages on some of the still "active" Yahoo Groups.

1. Saturday's game would be a great oppportunity to sell your models.  Noob's might be especially interested in picking up a complete army, or a starter set.  Some old hands might add an army, or fill out their missing models.


2. If that does not fit your schedule, then either

a. Drop by GG Thurdays nights to show what you've got. Our FoW gourp meets casually there between 6 and 8:30 PM.


b. List what you'v got on this forum, and asking price.

Hello, I've been lurking for a while, quietly collecting forces and getting an occasional game in over the past year. Really looking forward to the event tomorrow. I don't have any directly beach-specific forces, but definitely have things to contribute as the campaign progresses. Still working through the rules, so I apologize in advance.

Hey was a great time today and a big thank you to all who came by and played or even just checked things out.  Sorry about the rough start thursday should be much smother.  General Barca will plot out the next round of attacks on Thursday.


May the gallant German army drive the invaders back into the sea.

Not a cast of thousands, but great support:

Thanks to SteveM for the Omaha beach board, LCVPs, lots of terrain, obstacles and bunkers.

Jesse Lowe contributed the Sword beach board.

Zeke contributed his American Armored forces and Paratroopers.

lazarus brought fortifications, obstacles, GE Festungs Kp and US boat company.

Boss "brewed up" several Shermans on Omaha.

Panzerkyle brought GE armor and infantry.

John contributed his Allied paratropers and German Infantry.

The folks at GG were generous with their table space. We had all the space we needed.

Great looking stuff on the boards.


I have pics. Will find a free hosting site, upload them and post a link.


Invitations are still open for Allied and Axis commanders for the next round in our Firestorm: Overloard campaign.

Oh, and lazarus you probably intercepted these the messages to the allied troops


1) "I have full confidence in your courage and devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory!" Dwight D Eisenhower


2) Give'm hell men, and keeping kicking their butts all the way to Berlin! - barca
