Cold Wars 2015

I have asked a number of people to run a simple FOGR Open tourney at Cold Wars but have no one is able to commit to being there and to run the thing. Therefore unless someone volunteers out of the blue, there will be no FOGR event at Cold Wars.

Sorry,

Uncle Meat

Re: Fall-In 2014 Lancaster PA Nov 7-9

well I expect a good turnout in 15mm but in 25mm just a few grognards, so this will probably be one of the few remaining 25mm events. After Fall-In I have decided to quit running things. I hope Jeff Wiltrout and Jeff Fletcher between them will pickup the duty and run things between them. See you guy...

A friend says no it takes 4+ hits. I say it takes a test on 3 hits, but the effect is a casualty test and a disruption...

Yes, I would repost it here. Some people read one forum, others read both. I use this one since the authors post here (read the proposed update for game balance, very important for 17th century armies, hint, hint). UncleMeat Could you link or direct me to that?

Cold Wars 2014

Time to plan Cold Wars 2014. Tournament super overlord Scott Holder needs our events by Dec 13th, which means we have about 10 days to discuss ideas and figure out who is doing what. Remember this is a full four day convention, so think of event(s) for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Jeff Fletcher w...

Re: The Marquis of Montrose in Leganés, Spain - sep 2013, Ga

Your report has great pictures, the action was exciting, and the flags and paint jobs excellent. The colonial Spanish are a fearsome lot since they are rated above what the homeboys are listed as. Cheers.

Re: FOGR at Fall-In 2013

While attending school and looking for work, running Cold Wars should be someone else's chance for leadership. I will be back in the saddle as soon as possible. For Jeff or anyone else that wants to step up I just recommend the following: 1) have a theme and an open or just an open 2)I f you want 15...

Re: Army balance in competitions

So its not really the game at fault, but the army list that has too low a minimum for the foot regiments. * FWIW even allowing for this I think, on reflection, that the FoG lists as a whole (well, AM and R; I know nothing of N) were written with too low a minimum points requirement. IIRC it is abou...

Re: Army balance in competitions

When you say Cav Max armies can you give an example? I just ran the FOGR Tourney at Fall-In here in the states. We had a 700pt 15mm Open and a 700pt 25mm Trade and Treachery Theme. All the T&T armies were foot heavy. In the Open there were 6 players. 5 played 30 Years War armies which generally req...
