2016 looks like being an exciting year for Flames of War players. Check out the Battle Front post 2016 – The Year Ahead for details, but some of the highlights include:
  • Mid-War books updated to v3 and released digitally by end of Jan (no release date for printed versions)
  • Pacific books (USMC and Japanese) scheduled for March
  • Late War compilations to replace/enhance the three Bulge books (Blood, Guts & Glory, Nuts and The Devil’s Charge)
  • A brand new Late War book, accompanied by new plastic models
  • A factory move, which hopefully will mean more output and improved stock levels
Hopefully it will be a big year for Mid-War, with not just the books being updated for v3 but also the ETC 2106 FoW being Mid-War 1650 pts I expect that we'll see a lot of interest in Mid-War events this year.

Bastonge - All In
16th - 17th January, 2016
Good Games Gosford

IPB Image

The Siege of Bastogne was an engagement in December 1944 between American and German forces at the Belgian town of Bastogne, as part of the larger Battle of the Bulge.

Unsure of the details for the event - I think that it is a multiplayer event. Also unsure if the spelling of Bastonge in the poster is intentional or not.

Hopefully at Cancon a group of us will have nutted out the details and will have a webstie up where all the flames events in the country will be listed, with the idea you can signup for a e-mailing list too.

Events I know of.

FUFCON - February 20-21 - Games Cube Parramatta
(same date as Clash with flames not being run at clash)
This is a teams game with late war east/west fronts for both axis and allied. Let Nigel Slater know on the flames of war site or email him which side you want to play for.

Flames of War Forum Thread: http://www.flamesofwar.com/Default.aspx?ta...afpgj=1#1370671

Players Pack: http://www.panzerangriff.org.au/wp-content...5/12/FUFCon.pdf

Sabre - Panzer Angriff - Penrith - TBA

Interclub Challenge - TBA

Mid War GT

MOAB - TBA

NSW State Masters - TBA

Early War GT

Also Hopefully .......National Masters

I'll put up a list of one day events I'm running at the games cube soon as well.



The European Team Championships this year is looking to be held in Greece, the date and venue is still not set in stone.

So far the team is:

John Maguire (CAPT)- QLD
Gary Wait - QLD
Paul Collins - NSW
David Rea - NSW
Patrick Williamson - NSW
Walter Spivak - VIC

A centralised calendar would be good. Panzer Angriff started a calendar, but not everyone registered with it and it looks like the Jan 2016 calendar is blank (no Cancon).

An ideal solution would let players filter by location and/or period. The current Flames of War forums where events from all over the world are posted in a single place is a pain, as any events you might be interested in are lost in the noise of events world wide.

Being able to sign up to a mailing list where it emails you about events would be great. Ifs it a mailing list then not such a need to filter the events by locale or period. Would it be one email for each event added, or would it be a monthly summary sent out letting you know what's on over the next three months (I realistically need about that long to get my life organised to attend an event).

Both Eastern Front and North Africa are now available on http://forces.flamesofwar.com.

Although there have been minimum changes, one interesting one for Australian players is that now only two Rifle Platoons are required in the Australian Rifle Coy (previously it was 3 minimum).

Luke has created a closed Facebook group "Flames of War - Central Coast".
QUOTE

A group for Flames of War players on the Central Coast. Organise games or campaigns, post pictures of your recent painting, or just talk the game with people you know.


A timely initative as more players seem to be using Facebook to organise games than using the WAU forums.

Mark C

There were 22 teams in Athens this year, down from 30 teams in Prague last year. I haven't been following the event so I don't know why the numbers were down.

Next years event will be in Salamanca, Spain.

As 2016 draws to a close I look back at what I achieved w.r.t. Flames of War this year - not much.

I played a single game (using a borrowed army) and didn't buy a single model, though I do have a massive painting backlog to get through.

I did paint 3 platoons of DAK Panzers that had just been sitting undercoated for the last 3 years.

How was 2016 for everyone else?

Regards

Mark C
