FoW/TY - Spinning my wheels

Post  |marauder| on Wed May 16, 2018 9:00 am

Good day Ravening Hordes,

I am wondering if there is any point me even posting/being on this site. It has been, I believe, a year since I have seen anyone here (other than Lorne) out to a Flames of War tournament or event. I have also noticed that while my posts are viewed they are rarely commented on or contributed to. I am always eager to answer any questions or assist in any way I can.
Meanwhile, you may always email me at:
cigamnogard@sasktel.net
Or, if you are looking for upcoming events please see:

Good luck and happy gaming!
Lance

Hey Lance,

Its true, I have lost a bit of my momentum with Flames of War as of late. Partly as the new ruleset came out I didn't have the time to keep up with the changes and now I feel like I'm way behind, the other reason is that with the very limited time I have for gaming right now I'd honestly rather be playing The Ninth Age. Even there I'm not able to get in as many games as I'd like. I do fully intend to keep up with or come back to Flames of War as I love the game and always have a blast at your events. Feel free to keep posting about upcoming events, I know it is frustrating when it feels like you're talking to an empty room but I do read them. I know for myself I'm only going to be interested in late war events and for the foreseeable future I'm going to be hit and miss on the out-of-town events I can make it to. My older brother's family did just move to Regina though so I have been looking for a good excuse to visit.

Hey Lance,

I have sold off my Canadian Tank army and am pretty much done with FoW, didn't enjoy any of the last games i had or the new ruleset. Even dropping 40k from my roster so its nothing personal. I'm just strictly a 9th age guy.

Thanks for the introduction into FoW tho!

first off Lance, welcome to miniature gaming! Very Happy At least Flames of War players still have a game. The Warhammer world was LITERALLY blown up and the real World community had to create (steal) their game and call it 9th age. 4 years later, it's still not done, players have quit and went to other games, etc, etc... Some days this hobby hangs by a thread and it has a natural ebb and flow of interest. It's certainly not Lance that has chased people away, when V4 was mentioned it changed the whole community - heck Battlefront even closed up their own forum - not cool.

I just sold my British army as I LIKE FoW, but never play it and haven't tried V4 yet...but to be honest, I rarely read anything positive about it. Sad So part of my apprehension comes from that. The other is that if we have "Warhammer" tournaments and games days throughout the year - it will always be a 9th age ruleset gamesday. Part of my issue is that FoW is fragmented and at best there may be 2 Late War (the only era I play) events a year. I'm not interested in buying more models for Early War, Mid War, Vietnam, Team Yankee, etc. As Nathan said, there's a finite amount of gaming time and Warhammer is it for this group (mostly).

Having said all that, I am still interested in FoW and will still only play Late War period. And others in Saskatoon will still play (Carson, Nathan, Lorne, Dean)

If I don't respond to a post it's because I simply have nothing to add, but read it out of curiosity. Smile
