League/Small-Scale Events during the week?

Post by scurrdi on Wed Feb 17, 2010 9:41 pm

Hey guys,

Since we've had a sudden influx of newly interested FOW guys, and with A Bridge Too Far I've gotten my interest re-kindled, how are people feeling about a possible little Mini-Campaign sort of event?

I was thinking that perhaps on Thursdays, or maybe Sundays, every other week, we could do a few games. Make the point sizes not too big to start with, maybe 1k or so, and use some of the scenarios. Then, based on who wins/loses and what sort of battle reports get written up, we would change the scenarios and special rules for the next round.

We could do Middle or Late War, but I think this might be something fun to think about, what does everyone say?

I would like to do mid war. My army is geared towards that period.

Agreed & likewise. I could do LW, but I'd prefer MW.

Well, looks like we are leaning towards Mid-War, which is a-ok with me, just waiting to hear back from other folks.

Cesar and Dave, do Thursdays work for you guys? Joel wants us to try and find a day during the week for FOW.

Mid week is a no-no for me, and I don't at present have Mid War anyway. Once I get back to gaming after the ren fair I will try to make sure I have my stuff around on Saturdays in case anyone fancies a game whilst others board game.

I can do LW, I have the LW intelligence briefings for the lists that I've got models for.... I'll just have significantly less points overall.

King, axis or allies for late war?
Nevermind, just saw your 3rd Armor Division post. Maybe we can get a game in with my FJ's sometime soon.

I was at Sunshine this past Thursday, but no one showed up for FOW. Will try again next Thursday.
Don is running FOW this Saturday according to Joel.

You know what? Fuck it. I'd rather play with the FoW crowd over the 40K crowd. Too much drama over plastic soldiers and too many people taking that shit waaaaaay too seriously. Is there that type of drama in FoW? I don't mean to hijack the thread, but I'd like to know. Most of the people I've seen play FoW seem to generally have a good time doing it and I haven't heard of any real arguments on much of anything.

*It's almost as bad as the magic crowd*

I agree with you KigndomCome, FOW group I believe is some of the best players around, and a lot of the play other systems also such 40K and Fantasy.

I have enjoyed every FOW game a played.
Although I have only won one or two games.

No, The FoW scene is pretty laid back. Everyone there just enjoys a good game and the historical aspect.

Even the tournament circuit people are pretty chill. Casual game it's usually way laid back, probably because of the historical / realistic aspects.

So, so far we've got the following:

2 MW Requests
1 LW Request

2 Don't Care Requests

Ceasar, I put you in the MW request, but I know you can do LW, as can Dave I believe, I just know your preferences are Mid-War.

The next two weeks for me are pretty crazy so I won't be able to start anything until March 11th.

Why don't we plan for March 11th as a starting point, and lets do MW. Kingdome Come, let me know when we can meet up (if you don't meet up with Erik) so we can figure out what you've got to make it work MW (most stuff will work MW with little problem).

Don is also game for Thursdays, and a new player from Saturday might also be joining us.


So, in recap:

Lets shoot for March 11th, bring about 1k pts (as much painted as possible!). Bring more if you got it, but make sure you've got 1k lists ready.

We are doing 1k.

Also, even if you have those big hunking 155 guns, your going to need to have at least 1 platoon of 105 guns to take them, so don't forget that.

And yes, you should be able to proxy without any difficulty.

At that small number of points, do you relax some of the combat platoon choice restrictions?

I know that most (and it may be all) lists require you to take the Company HQ, plus two combat platoons before you buy platoon support and regimental support troops.

Do you drop that to HQ and one combat platoon minimum?
