flames of war league

I really think we should get a FOW league together with v4 coming out. It would hopefully bring all the scattered players in Saskatoon and surrounding areas together. Advertise it here and at the den for awhile before it got started.

club name etc..

I would probably be in. I'm not really familiar with a league but basically its just organized matchups and makes you play a given number of games a week or?

Think less organized than that Lorne. Probably just track the results of the games you are playing against the others in the league and then at the end of a prescribed time the people with the best W/L record get rewarded. Mostly it just adds a bit of structure to what is already happening and encourages people to play more and against different opponents.

FYI and partially related I do own 2 campaigns for Flames of War. A bridge to far would require around 30 games on average. I haven't looked much at Bagration.

Firestorm: A Bridge Too Far
Firestorm: Operation Bagration

So with V4 rulebooks now in hand, should we start this?

New to FoW in S'toon, and haven't really played since 2nd Ed. How can I join the league and get in some games?

You pretty much just joined! Smile Just shout out on here, when you're available and I'm sure you'll find a game. I just got the V4 book - haven't even read it yet, so most of us are pretty new to this.

I guess we should get this up and running. We need to talk about a format for the league though first.

thoughts?

I'm interested but am unfamiliar with leagues. I assume you collect some money and then distribute prizes at the end? How long does a league last?

Length? 6 Months maybe? I'm only saying longer maybe because i feel we will still get more Fantasy games in over FOW.

also....

*opens can of worms*

Sorry in advance guys. BUUUTT I've noticed that Lance never scores painting at any of his tourneys, are we going to be scoring painting per game like in Fantasy? Honestly this army is SOOO much easier to paint so it would be a matter of smashing it out in an afternoon or 3 . Just curious where i should have my attentions. Fantasy paint or Sherman Paint... altho i'm not going to lie i have this urge to change from Canadians to Americans ... feels so wrong tho...

Oh - did not feel you were throwing me under the bus at all. No, this a totally different issue and it is a huge can of worms in my honest opinion.
