I'm going to this. Do the armies have to be painted?

Painted isn't a requirement but its nice to at least have things base coated.

Don't act like a FoW vet with an extraneous post. We haven't even seen a picture of your army yet. Wink

I'm guessing Andre is wondering what LW stands for. It is a valid question. LW stands for Late War in Flames of War (original post didn't specify that it was FOW either).

Yes, FoW has tons of acronyms and jargon. It is even difficult to go from one era to another. For example we have a 'Nam Total War Game this Saturday and two new players were totally baffled by the vocabulary:

  • Slick = Huey Transport

  • Hog = Gunship

  • Jolly Green Giant = rescue helicopters for downed pilots

  • Chuck chuck = command and control

  • VC - Viet Cong = guerrilla troops

  • PAVN - Peoples Army of Vietnam = regular army

  • Koalas - Endangered species not to be removed from native habitat = Centurion MBTs

Played two games of this tournament as Lorne had to leave early and I took his place. It was fun and it was good to meet some of the guys here in Saskatoon. I enjoyed but lost both games. The second game was really close and especially bloody. We were both down below half our starting platoons by the end and the table was littered with burning tanks from both sides. My 6 pdrs did a lot of heavy lifting, unfortunately I failed a few critical firepower tests or I might have gotten the W. As it was I forced 2 company morale tests that my opponent had to pass to stay in the game and claim the victory.

Sounds like a fun slugfest!

Another community that could probably support 20 regular players. Have to start figuring out where these guys hang out.

That's the biggest problem, they mostly just text each other for games so there isn't much chance for outsiders to get a hold of them. They all seem like good guys though and I look forward to playing more games with them.
