Re: Late War Fortress Italy game?

Happy to try to work out a Brit list (inf or armoured) from Road To Rome and give you a game some time. Potentially anywhere from 1500 to 1750pts? Your call. For timings, any time this week is good (except Monday, natch), including weekend. Next week isn't great, as I'm likely away on Weds night wit...

Re: Flames of War - Easterfront

Right, as we've not had masses of uptake, Easterfront will not be run as a competitive tournament - instead we'll just have a day of playing some Round Robin games. The same ground rules and assumptions apply: 1550pts EW, I'll try to set up some terrain of types that we don't always get to use, and ...

Flames of War - Easterfront

Easterfront is one of our two main annual Flames of War events - the other being Tanksgiving. This year, we are playing Early War, as follows: Date: Sat 07 Apr Times: setup from 0900; Round One 0930 - 1200; Round Two 1230 - 1500; Round Three 1530 - 1800 Lists: Any valid EW book or PDF, including Pac...

Re: PSC acquires Armies Army

They will certainly be a valid entry, and, similarly to some of the special missions listed above, it would be morally wrong of me not to allow you to play a glider landing mission if you did bring them.

My only concern would be that if we get a lot of infantry players than three 1550 point games could go on for a long time! I definitely hear where you're coming from, and for v3 I would very definitely have agreed with you. Due to the movement speeds in v4, while I accept that infantry will play a ...

This includes Pacific War points, and Raiding Aces. It is possible, albeit very very silly to create a raiding force at 1550pts. Whet...

I can probably do up to about 120 or 125 of Brits, but I'd generally prefer to play approx 75-80pts, and avoid taking anti-fun numbers of Milans.

Re: Easterfront 2018 Early War Points

My 1525 may as well be a 1550, TBH.

So, on the basis that we have a fairly strong, if not unanimous consensus, does anyone fancy a game of 1550 EW next week? Tues or Weds evenings, or any time on Thurs/Fri.

I've voted 1525, but am happy to go anywhere from 1500 to 1575. To my mind, 1250 is a bit low, especially given the lack of "swiss army knife" multi-purpose platoons in EW. The tools are so specialised that you really need all of them to stand a chance. I'm also very happy to play some TY ...
