FoW – Getting Rid of Dug in Veteran Infantry

Hi all, I’m going to try and tackle one of the most difficult problems in FoW, how to remove Dug in Veteran Infantry. Anyone who’s played the game will have needed to assault infantry – and when they’re all vet’s with MG’s and Fausts they can seem an almost impossible problem to deal with – […]

Starting Flames of War will get you into the world of painting 15mm models.  Here is what you need to know: Hi all coxer here once again with what is probably my least favourite thing to talk about, painting. I actually enjoy painting but frankly I’m not very good at it so always feel a […]

FoW List Review – SS Panzerbrigade Westfalen

Hi all Coxer here from Breakthrough Assault – taking a  look at a specific German list which I think has some appeal, either from a historical or gaming perspective.  I’ve decided to start by taking a rather topical list which I mentioned in my ‘Remagen’ review – the SS Panzerbrigade Westfalen. Now firstly – don’t […]

Flames of War: Early War – What’s Going On?

Hi all coxer here, and I thought I’d turn everyone’s mind back to 1939-1941… Why? Well that’s when the Early War period of FoW is set. It’s a era I’ve only been playing in recent months and after a recent tournament have really enjoyed it compared to late/mid war. Here’s a few reasons why The […]

FoW – Smoke Tactics

Hi all coxer here again, today I wanted to talk about smoke in FoW and it’s uses.  Smoke comes in two forms, direct and bombardment – and it has two principle effects – units shooting through smoke can only see 16 inches, and if the target you’re shooting at is obscured by smoke it counts […]
