I would like to create a small unofficial list of anyone interested in Flames of War just so we can have a general idea. Thanks.

I'm Nino's friend Mike...I'm so into it it's bleeding from my ears. I'm painting an American Infantry company. I have the infantry company, three shermans, airborne rangers company and m10 platoon. I'm working on getting more stuff (as ebay permits...and my wife) But I'm pyched. I'm a slow painter and after three weeks I only have about 40 soldiers painted, but I'm persistant and should have a 600 point force in two to three weeks more. I do have the rules memoriezed (I re-read them every day or so) and am looking for an American WW2 helmet to wear at the battles, so zeal is on my side as well. Anyway if you haven't figured it out I'm really into it.

I'm glad to see what Mike. I would like to ask which rule book you would be making your army list from. Currently, Bill and myself both have "Mid War" armies from those supplements, and from the sound of what you have so far, seems you have a mid war company as well, from the Afrika book? If you've been building a late war list, everything you chose I think is compatible in mid war as well. One more note of caution, if you have been buying things without consulting an army list be careful as lots of things are late war only or only available for certain companies.

Nice deal, but I'm curious as to what you will be using the jeeps for?

Damn you guys, you are starting to get me interested in FoW now!
Bill has been trying to get me into this game for ages.
I don't have enough time though for another game, let alone starting a whole new scale and painting up new armies... I barely have time to run the Mordheim campaign!!!
It does get me all jealous though to see that there's so much excitement. I have never seen anyone show up in a helmet to any of my games.

Well it's only natural for you to be interested in such a great game. It's only a matter of time before you cave in, you just gotta see some models and a game and it won't be long after that.

Hey James those jeeps are for Recon teams as well as several others...a battle is won or lost due to intel...Hey Sal come on board. WW2 welcomes you. James when do you think we could get a battle going...some skirmishes to kick things off and work out the wrinkles?

I see. I need to better familiarize myself with what US companies can take what. I played against a kid in the past that thought any company could take anything from the army, and I didn't catch it until after a few games. I'm available a lot of the time, the only problem is we can't play the game in grasshoppers, and from what I gather about where you live it may be hard for me to get all the way out there for a game because of the extra time driving.

Recon in late war (dont know if its different from mid) can take three regular jeeps and one with a 50. cal. We'll have to work it out...I'm out at deer park till the end of the month...

nice...I'm fine with doing mid war because essentially nothing changes for me. So we can start in mid war and build to late.

I appreciate that. There's a bunch of stuff I have, even an entire platoon that I wouldn't be able to use in late war, and s few other things that I could technically use but are so weak I wouldn't bother, so I would hate having to have all this stuff go to waste. By the way, what type of company exactly are you fielding, is it regular rifle company, armored, parachute, rangers or something else? Also I see you can pick Normandy style (cheaper but less experience) or Italy (more expensive but better experienced). Which of those have you decided?

American rifle company (though I'm also building a tank company for multi-company battles) Normandy style for late war. I'm going to base it off large Rifle companies (3) with tons of artillery (Napolean esc) with a smatter of extras. as far as mid goes I dont have the book so it will be similar with more motars. I'm off to paint again!

yeah. or we can run both! mouhahaha. Yeah, the US is lucky. Other than uniforms and some vehicles, its the same pretty much.

As for Germans, you can always use the mid wars guys as late war, you just have to "pretend". cheers

Yes im going to just almost everything I have for late war. it's just a little harder for grenadiers than other German companies because of a few platoons either being smaller, or built slightly different. I have an order that I'm ready to purchase soon that will give me enough to be happy with a 1500 point late war list, at least again an infantry company anyway. I still need some PaKs eventually.
