Just to give the WWII players a bit of info:

Flames of War (15mm) has been taking off at my club in York for a couple of months. General opion is that is gives a good fun game in about 2-3 hours but you lose some of the technical accuracy as it is quick play system.

Any more specific info I will pass on when/if I hear about it.

Cheers

Stuart

Can it be used with other scales?
IE 20mm or 300th?

Hehehe, spot the guys with no 15mm! Wink

I'd like to have a go at it. Always willing to give a new system a go. (And it will have to go some to match Crossfire's speed and overall battle presence. [Spot my current fav game and claim your five pounds.])

Don't see any reason why it can't be used for the larger/smaller scale although I would believe it has been set up for company sized engagements. The guys at my local club were using what looked like, 1-2 tank platoons, 1 platoon Anti-tank guns and 1-3 platoons of infantry.

Will ask next time I am down at the club and pass it on.

I'm sure you could just alter range/movement etc. for different scales. That doesn't seem to difficult to me.

No, I'm not volunteering to do it, before anyone asks Razz

Cheers,
Tim

Hello WWII nuts:

suggested alterations for the scales are as follows (via Rob who spoke to some people at a wargaming show at the weekend):

20mm figures, times all distance values by 1.5
28mm figures, times all distance values by 2

Thanks to Rob and Stuart A.
